The André shirt

A House signature since its creation in 1998, the André shirt strikes the perfect balance between ease and elegance. As one of the first most coveted garments envisioned by Loro Piana, it has retained all of its charm, testifying to the Maison’s enduring allure.

The story behind the icon

The unmistakable garment is named after André Piot, a Swiss artist and painter who spent most of his life working in the world of textiles, specifically with Loro Piana. He would often join Sergio Loro Piana on his travels, and they discovered a need for a shirt that looked sharp worn without a tie, ideal in warmer climates – thus, the André shirt was born.

A sensorial experience

While the first André shirts were offered in denim, the linen rendition was soon developed to provide supreme comfort during hot and humid weather. Since then, many more declinations have been imagined, with the linen versions remaining a firm staple. They are treated with aloe vera to emphasise the fabric’s cooling properties and durability, as well as adding a supremely soft hand feel.

A unique design signature

Featuring a collar with wide, folded facings, without the restrictions of a stiff band, the André shirt has a distinctive look and feel and is designed to be worn open for a relaxed yet elevated finish. Endlessly versatile, it is the perfect garment to layer under a jacket or a sweater.
