Functionality, innovation and precision are at the core of Herno's philosophy. Giuseppe Marenzi, who founded Herno in 1948, used his previous military experience to inform the technical details of the label's first raincoat designs. Enhanced by their weatherproof qualities, outerwear has become Herno's specialization. In 2005, the Italian label focused on developing its modern sportswear collections. Herno now infuses its line with a range of shapes woven from both luxury and performance fabrics.
