Luxe Mock Sweater in Ice Blue

With chunky knits and custom colours, Elle & Riley’s new collection is a fresh take on winter cashmere

With conditions decidedly frosty, it is high time we gave our knitwear an overhaul, in order to prepare for the season ahead. It is, after all, the last few weeks before winter officially kicks off. So of course, it is to the cashmere queens at Elle & Riley that we turn first, able to rely on their collections that balance sleek style with luxurious, high-quality fabrics and always a few, fun twists.

Elle & Riley’s new Luxe collection has everything we need to combat winter’s wrath. Not only are many of the pieces in this collection limited edition (many made in custom-dyed colourways and exclusive yarns) but the brand has also introduced a slightly thicker, five-gauge knit to the fold, offering extreme comfort and warmth.

Inspired by the rich, natural landscapes of Aotearoa via tones like Butter Yellow, Ice Blue and Stone, Elle & Riley’s covetable new cashmere offers a fresh take on classic tropes. And while the vibrant notes are welcome, there is an underlying versatility here thanks to a core, tonal palette and the use of matching styles that allow for effortless layering with any kind of personal style.
