The Italian cashmere cardigan by Nicola Luccarini has superb credentials! Made entirely from remnant Loro Piana cashmere it is an ingenious design that puts the spotlight not only on the artisan’s sensitivity to sustainable outerwear, but shows off an innate understanding of colour.
Stripes do not always work, they can be hard to mix and match, and they can date so quickly. Not in this case! Here the stripes sit together nicely creating a harmonious garment that begs to be shown off, frequently!
We see Nicola’s cardigan worn as an accessory over cowl neckline knits say, paired with smart trousers or jeans. Simple sheath dresses in wool would work well too. In fact, the cashmere cardigan has multiple uses rendering it a collectible to be worn season after season.
Made in the bottega in Bologna, Italy the cardigan is a Limited Edition item.
