Summer is taking a while to reach Cape Town, so luxuriously snuggly cashmere still feels very appealing, and there is a great new local brand just arrived on the luxury fashion scene.
Alabaste designs a fine range of 100% cashmere scarves – made in Mauritius and currently available from ShopLabel online or from selected retailers in Cape Town.
Cape Town based stylist and fashion veteran Ava Edwards is the creative mind behind the label . The feather light but chunky winter range, aptly named Stroke Me, will be joined by a lighter summer range shortly.
The branding and packaging reflects the high-end cashmere product and is designed by Deep.
The most stylish of cashmere scarves in a gossamer lightweight weave, Artemis Wragge’s beautiful creations are an absolute must for this winter.
South African designers, Diana Wragge and Roy Curitz, restore an inimitable mystique and cachet to the cashmere scarf, creating masterpieces in this luxurious yarn that you will treasure for years.
The Artemis Wragge collection is made from the finest quality cashmere from Inner Mongolia and is woven exquisitely. The gossamer collection is so fine that it will easily pass the ultimate test of slipping through a wedding band.
Also look out for the label’s gorgeous printed scarves in a rich cashmere and silk blend.
