Do some research to avoid the dreaded pilly sleeve syndrome
Cashmere sweaters, once high-end items that were out of reach for the average person, are now thrilling the fingertips of many. But prices for this super-soft knit can vary dramatically, and so can quality.
Lower quality cashmere quickly becomes pilly, and sweaters can become stretched and deformed by everyday wear. High-quality cashmere sweaters get softer over time, and look beautiful for a long time.
So how to tell the difference between an investment sweater and a cheap imposter? Before shopping, it helps to learn a little about cashmere’s origin story.
Zilch puts a colourful spin on classic styles
For fall 2019, the Amsterdam-based brand wants to dress you in nature-inspired shades and eye-catching patterns
We know it’s weird, but we’re always excited to see fall on the horizon. And this season, it’s especially true. We’ve got a colourful new line in the store that’s got us all excited to see the leaves beginning to turn.
Zilch is an Amsterdam-based brand that puts colour and pattern in the spotlight, and people are really responding to it in the store. We’ve unpacked several deliveries already, and customers are having a lot of fun with it.
We love it because the line is classic and practical in its designs, but the vibrant colour combinations -- along with other tiny design details -- mean it’s far from boring.
Claire Scott’s colourful mural was designed to create an accessible moment of connection to Stratford
If you’re like us, you love art. We especially love street art, which can provide a surprising moment of resonance where once there was only cement, brick and asphalt.
