Painting from the city’s dreamy palette—think gold-bathed Baroque buildings, pastel-blue morning skies, rich olive trees, and sparkling seascapes—the SS22 campaign mirrors the beauty of its muse.
Through the fine linen jersey, silk-cotton tees, and airy linen shirts, you’ll traverse the creamy cobblestone streets, discovering the unique allure of Lecce.

Which, just like Italy, you’ll return to again and again.
Come for the craftsmanship of centuries past; stay for the contemporary cool vibes.
Your passport to a world of Italian style
The Italian word for craftsmanship is artigianato, but it might as well be Luca Faloni. An Italian brand with an Italian heart, Luca Faloni keeps things local, down to every last stitch. Partnering with artisans and family-owned Italian workshops, the premium quality intrinsic to Italian fashion is evident in every garment. Supporting traditional artisanship and sourcing the finest materials from all corners of the nation, every single piece is 100% made in Italy—without exception.
From linen cloth sourced from the Italian North—deftly weaved by skilled artisans with three generations of handed-down experience—to silk cotton from ninth-generation artisans, Maggia, every thread is refined.
Consciously designed to be comfortable, breathable, and ultimately wearable, Luca Faloni is proving over and over that one needn’t sacrifice style for comfort. Soft against your skin, airy as a summer breeze, and awakening your most chilled-out self, these pieces are calm, free, and flowing.
Of course, style is about how you feel: Unveiling a portal to real Italian escapism, you need only throw on one of the modern-fit pieces to channel that Southern Mediterranean charm.
Yes, each pair of chino shorts, suave polo, and devil-may-care shirt transports your mind (and your style) to a sun-soaked bistro terrace; simply imagine an espresso in hand and sun glinting through your shades—and just like that, you’ll personify Italy’s easy-living appeal.
Easy, effortless, enduring
Everybody who’s tasted la dolce vita knows the value of a day-to-night wardrobe. Nobody wants to fritter away precious hours of sunlight rummaging through their closet—and thanks to Luca Faloni, you won’t have to. Soak up every golden minute and meander from morning espresso to evening aperitivo; your outfit will see you through in grace and finesse, no matter your plans.
Effortless and enduring, you’ll find yourself wearing the classic tees, neutral linen trousers, and understated, just-the-right-thickness cashmere-silk cardigans for many a summer.
