N.PEAL LAUNCHES SS16 CASHMERE COLLECTION
A MIX OF CLASSIC WARDROBE STAPLES AND STANDOUT PIECES
The dark days of winter are turning into the brighter vibes of spring, giving the perfect occasion to top up your wardrobe. Eighty years old this year, luxury cashmere knitwear specialists N.Peal has recently launched its spring collection, including everything from classic wardrobe staples in subtle shades, to standout pieces guaranteed to get you noticed.
Originally launched by Nat Peal in London’s Burlington Arcade in 1936, the N.Peal brand reached America in the 1950s, going on to dress the likes of Cary Grant, Steve McQueen and Elvis Presley and gaining a reputation for impeachable fit, style and quality. Its standing continues today, with pieces featuring in the last two James Bond films, Skyfall and Spectre.
Made from 100% Mongolian cashmere, the quality of these pieces is second to none, and the experience of wearing superfine cashmere a genuine delight. Being made from a completely natural fabric means they adapt to the climate as you find it, allowing your skin to breathe, whilst retaining warmth. This spring collection incorporates present trends, whilst being a welcome reminder that classic style never goes out of fashion. Below are just a few favourite pieces, ideal for peacocking now that it’s safe to go outside again.
Double-Breasted Cashmere Jacket - inspired by the classic military pea coat, N.Peal’s 100% cashmere jacket is a sublime introduction to their new collection. In dark navy with caramel-suede trims and a Milano stitch knit, this double-breasted elegant piece is smart, stylish and sure to look great in the city during the week or if you’re on a more casual weekend away.
Fine Gauge Contrast Zipped Hoody - even a casual look can have a luxurious appeal and N.Peal’s hoody in superfine cashmere is a clean-cut way of dressing down. A sporty classic just right for the weekend, it will replace a jacket on warmer days and blend effortlessly in with both town and countryside.
Marl Waffle Cashmere Sweater - the classic crew neck is a wardrobe staple, and a woven waffle knit adds depth and intrigue. A versatile sweater, the Marl Waffle matches smart or casual trousers and complements a range of styles. Available in a range of six colours, including Lilac, Derby Grey and Electric Blue, it sits beautifully over a high-collared shirt, or go European and wear it next to your skin.
Mock Turtle Neck Sweater - N.Peal’s Mock Turtle Neck is a modern interpretation of an iconic masterpiece, recently seen in the James Bond Spectre poster and also within key scenes during the film in both dark charcoal and lapis blus. Woven from a 70% cashmere, 30% silk blended yarn, the design is perfect for spring, being cool enough for warmer spells yet cosy enough to keep the last breath of winter at bay. Match with a blazer if going smart, or a Harrington jacket for a timeless, more relaxed look.
The Oxford Round Neck 1-Ply Cashmere Sweater - the movie Skyfall saw the character of James Bond in a Blue Wave-coloured version – now N.Peal have introduced the effervescent new shade of Neon Orange in time for spring. A magical mix with navy, grey and black regardless of the weather, pair with cream trousers and loafers on sunny days for a sophisticated continental look.
The Mayfair V Neck Cashmere Sweater - moulded shoulders and ribbed cuffs give the Mayfair an ageless appeal. Seen here in Electric Blue, the Mayfair is available in three shades, and will quickly become a go-to piece for everyone’s wardrobe. Matched with a lighter trouser the Mayfair gives a preppy-look, and it’s an ideal piece to soften those flamboyant, patterned shirts that many of us have but rarely get the chance to wear.
Fine Gauge Cardigan - in an eye-catching shade of Parrot Red, N.Peal’s Fine Gauge Cardigan will add a refined and erudite air to a blazer, shirt and tie combination, whilst the adaptability of its cashmere and silk blend will embellish a T-shirt-and-jeans guise come summer. Seen here in striking Parrot Red, it’s an idyllic knit to welcome in the vibrant colours of spring.
The Kensington Cashmere Cardigan - worn over a shirt or the new N.Peal Grandad T-shirt, the Kensington perfectly bestrides the changing of the seasons and its classic shawl collar and embossed buttons keeps it one step ahead of the competition. Being a chunkier knit, the Kensington allows you to keep the coats hung up in the wardrobe, and the ribbed texture ensures a perfect fit.
Naturally luxurious and forever on trend, we’re certainly excited about the launch of N.Peal’s new Spring Cashmere Collection. Using the finest materials, these are pieces that will remain looking at their best for years to come, and their versatility will complement whatever look you’re going for.
