Milan-based Les Copains has been one of Italy's top knitwear brands since founder Mario Bandiera launched the label in the late 1950s. Named after a popular French radio show, Les Copains has built its sterling reputation by producing consistently timeless sweaters and dresses made from the highest-quality cashmere. Slimming wool pencil skirts, tweed jackets and coats, long-sleeve shirts of soft tencel and wool blend, and other women’s clothing separates derive their crisp polished look from Les Copains’ expert detailing and draping; understated silk ties and brushed Shetland wool sweaters are some of the stand-outs you’ll find in Les Copains’ men’s line. In 2012 fashion designer Alessandro Dell’Acqua took over the reins of the company, which now produces perfume, handbags, and shoes in addition to the stunning knitwear that has made its name synonymous with Italian elegance.
