Paul & Shark continue to deliver high quality and innovation

The Travel Project and the Loro Piana Storm System both offer fashionable functionality


The Colors of Shetland collection is specially crafted with wool shearing of the lamb at four months, resulting in a soft and high quality garment

Italian luxury lifestyle brand Paul & Shark is set to showcase FW18 collection combined with highlights from its current SS18 offer at this year’s TFWA Asia Pacific Exhibition (stand Basement 2, D11). The collection will highlight the brand’s quality and technological innovation. The range includes Aqua Leather, the Travel Project, and Loro Piana.

The Aqua Leather collection offers water repellent leather jackets that are treated to maintain their softness and offer high-tech function and comfort.

The Travel Project is a range of clothing designed to ensure comfort when traveling. Blazers and trousers made of crease-proof and stain-proof fabric are suitable for both formal clothing and high performance leisure wear. Sweaters in cashmere intertwined with an ultra fine nylon thread maintain their shape and elasticity.

New for FW18 is a practical and comfortable jacket with clean lines and urban yet technical wool. Its ultra-compact surface brings together the travel benefits of lightness with high resistance and heat retention. A special treatment makes the fabric anti-wrinkle.

The Loro Piana Storm System and Rain System treatments are designed for protection. In the Storm System, natural fibres are flanked by state-of-the-art technology. It is a fully-fledged system consisting of a double barrier: a water repellent treatment and the hydrophilic membrane that is resistant to water, breathable and windproof.

The LoroPiana Rain System treatment allows water drops to slide over the surface of the fabric, increasing its water resistance and protecting it from dust, dirt and liquid stains. The thin and light hydrophilic membrane, is applied on the reverse of the fabric.

The FW18 range includes the Colors of Shetland collection which is created of soft lamb’s wool zip neck jumpers in autumnal shades.

Says Catherine Bonelli, Worldwide Travel Retail Director: “Paul & Shark has enjoyed another extremely successful year with 2017-8 seeing us open a number of new airport stores including Cairo, Istanbul, Bangkok, Wuhan, Nice and Riyadh. Our cruise ship business also continues to grow with new listings including the Norwegian Joy. These, plus our existing locations are all performing extremely well and we’re very happy with results to date.

She continues, “Nevertheless, we still see a lot of growth potential for Paul & Shark in all regions, but particularly Asia Pacific. We are very much looking forward to meeting our existing and potential clients in Singapore this year when, as always, we will be pleased to offer personalization of Paul & Shark polo shirts for guests using our bespoke embroidery machine.”
