Bring your closet in from the cold! As attention turns to the winter months, ‘cozy’ is quickly becoming the operative word in our wardrobe – and cashmere is by far the chicest way to keep the chills at bay.
The crème de la crème of knitwear, strokeable pieces serve two purposes in one, fulfilling a brief for layers that are both substantial and stylish. From the crew-neck knits and accessories you need to survive the season, to expert advice on how to care for your cashmere, our comprehensive boutique will warm you to the core.
Tried, tested and trusted to keep us toasty again and again, the crew-neck sweater’s resounding popularity is a testament to its ability to elevate the everyday.
There’s something unapologetically simple about a V-neck sweater, and as we all know, there’s perfection in simplicity! Wear yours over a lace-trimmed camisole for a delicate detail.
We’re a soft touch when it comes to swathing scarves, neat beanies and gloves that will hold our hand through the dark winter days.
WHAT ARE YOUR TOP TIPS FOR STORING CASHMERE PIECES?
Fold neatly in garment bags with anti-moth sachets, color co-ordinate them to avoid rummaging around in a panic in the morning and, when you travel, always wrap in tissue.
BESIDES THE CLASSIC CREW-NECK, WHAT CASHMERE STYLES WILL BE ON HIGH ROTATION IN YOUR WARDROBE THIS WINTER?
Cropped jumpers look fab with high-waisted jeans or a silk shirt underneath. And turtlenecks are terribly chic!
WHAT’S YOUR GO-TO PAIRING FOR A CASHMERE SWEATER?
I love a thin cashmere knit tucked into a pencil or a tulip skirt. Otherwise, a shorter one worn over a maxi skirt – I have an Iris & Ink navy style that I wear all the time, no matter the season.
ANY SECRETS FOR CARING FOR YOUR CASHMERE?
Always hand wash inside-out in cold water, and dry flat – add a little lavender or lemon water to make it smell lovely. And you’ll need to de-bobble regularly. Oddly, the best thing for this is a Bic razor – I do it while watching Netflix.
