The movement of the discerning fashion consumer is continuing to sweep across the country and onto the glossy pages of the magazines, this time hitting Stella of The Sunday Telegraph.
In our December blog post The Scottish Cashmere Club we featured a write-up from The Times’ Luxx magazine, on investing in premium cashmere and ditching the short-lived cheap stuff. Now it’s Stella’s turn, where fashion editor Lisa Armstrong tells readers to “Put your cash into cashmere.”
The jumper is definitely king this season, a feeling shared by Armstrong, who explains her devotion to the cashmere jumper in particular. In this article she also goes on to identify one of the key colours for fresh spring styling…gracious grey!
“Like prime London property, the cashmere grey jumper appears to be enjoying a bull market. I reckon it’s an even safer investment.”
- Lisa Armstrong
The grey jumper has been striding up and down the fashion catwalks, and hanging off the backs of celebrities and models everywhere! With both the jersey sweater and the cashmere knit, Spring summer ’13 exposes it as the best jumper to have in demonstrating a casually clean look.
There probably are around fifty shades of grey- pardon the pun, and we’ve probably created most of them ourselves; yet this years’ spring shade is zinc. Through our unique blending methods, we’ve developed an off-white tone with flecks of dove grey, silver and platinum; creating a wonderfully whimsical palette of zinc, seen here with our new cashmere gauzy jumper.
The flint cashmere moss stitch jumper was immensely popular last autumn winter; hence it being almost sold out in every size! Armstrong discusses her avid fondness of a strong, but simple cashmere jumper, referencing our casual comforter as a much loved marvel. The feature even illustrates a wonderfully quirky caricature of her wearing the piece, highlighting all its fabulous detailing.
Find your ideal bit of grey cashmere, whether that be a cardigan or jumper, and search our colour finder for all the delights of flint. Alternatively, you could roll into spring with the new King zinc, and champion a few styles that we have from the preview collection.
The many faces of grey, from light to dark, means you can rotate between the shades to reflect not only the seasons, but the tone of your outfit; light is luxurious and leisurely, dark is elegant evening wear.
