Hanro Basic Range
As well as producing spring/summer and autumn/winter collections, Swiss label Hanro also offer a great collection of basic loungewear pieces. The premium label is world renowned for its loungewear, sleepwear and underwear, which has been worn by everyone from Marylin Monroe to the Pope. In fact, former Pope Johannes Paul II was wearing a pair embroidered with his initials when his attempted assassination took place.
Hanro concentrates on its patented circular-knitting technology, which ensures a perfect fit and comfort, ultra-light garments of the finest wool and silk with just 7% elastane. The collection is as versatile as it is fashionable and can conceivably be utilised to create a whole outfit. However, it is more likely that you will utilise Hanro basics as versatile layering pieces – the type of clothing that forms the backbone of any successful capsule wardrobe.
Mercerised cotton jersey is teamed with woven cottons and flannel, creating a range that includes both short and long lounge pants, underwear, long and short-sleeved t-shirts and classic pyjamas. The collection comes in a limited but classic palette of blue, black, white and marl grey.
The ‘City’ lounge suit is a collection highlight. Made from the finest quality cotton, it features back detailing, pockets and a drawstring for a casual, slim silhouette. The matching long sleeve and bottoms pairing would be the perfect combination to spend a lazy day indoors.
The ‘Modern’ brief is the pick of the underwear on offer and a contemporary style that comes in black and white colour ways. Ultra soft to the touch, it is supremely comfortable, well-fitting and features a Hanro logo waistband.
Hanro has a rich and decorated history, with the label celebrating their 130th anniversary next year. This longevity and pedigree of high quality wear is evident in their basics collection. Minimal in aesthetic, classic colours, clean lines and comfort are at the forefront of every design.
