“If you own only one sweater, make sure it’s cashmere”
Probably the most important fashion advice taken from the book How To Be Parisian Wherever You Are and, in my opinion, the most important item of clothing to invest in.
Buying a cashmere statement sweater and caring for it as best as you possibly can, keeping it clean and well stored away from moths will mean that when wearing it you will have that feel-good feeling you usually have with something new for years to come.
The ultimate Scottish knitwear brand, in my opinion, is Cameron Taylor. You will find classic statement pieces like no other and best of all it is all Made in Scotland, to the highest of quality. The brand even offers a unique “tidy up service” of your cashmere should it start to show any signs of damage.
This oversize cashmere sweater is one from the archives (AW 14 is my favourite collection to date) but can still be bought Online or in store at Epitome Edinburgh. If you are looking for lighter knits perhaps the current collection will be more what you are looking for.
