FrontRunners: Soft Water

    The family-owned Italian outerwear company Allegri has introduced a fall line of jackets made from the designer’s newest fabric innovation, Rain Cashmere (www.allegri.com). Achieved by dipping cashmere thread in Teflon before weaving it into fabric, the material remains soft, but is also water-repellent. The collection, priced from $995 to $1,595, includes a five-pocket travel blazer, a single-breasted coat, and a sporty blazer with a removable hood (pictured). Rain Cashmere marks Allegri’s 2,000th fabric introduction since the company’s launch in 1971 in the small town of Vinci outside Florence.
