Wool Breeze: Summer Cashmere Looks by Allude
Even though temperatures are well into the double digits, we don’t have to go without the pleasant feeling of cashmere on our skin. Just the opposite: wafer-thin and breathable, the high-quality material is the perfect companion for summer days: for a morning yoga session just as well as when riding our bikes to the office or in case an open-air evening turns out to be chillier than we thought.
For the current Allude Spring / Summer Collection 2016, creative director Andrea Karg was especially inspired by this adaptability and versatility of cashmere. The collection deliberately focuses not only on timeless elegance expressed in classic blazers and V-neck jumpers.
The sporty and casual side of modern luxury knitwear is also reflected in the extensive range of designs – for instance in gorgeous, high-quality shorts, sweatpants and T-shirts. According to Karl Lagerfeld, sweatpants are a sign of defeat, of having lost control of your life. Thanks to our cashmere joggers, we cannot endorse this statement at all!
Overall it is a collection that is as practical as it is adaptable – and perfectly tailored to the needs of our often hectic urban lives. You want to know how to style your very own summer pieces by Allude at times for a casual look and then again as part of an elegant, or perhaps even a sporty outfit? We’ll show you, including some tips for the perfect accessories!
It’s no longer taboo to wear shorts at the office. However, their length should extend to just above the knee – similar to the pencil skirt. The dark blue model by Allude can be combined equally well with a cashmere jumper as with a blazer and T-shirt. The look becomes more feminine with delicate ankle strap pumps. Sophisticated accessories like a timeless bag and a beautiful piece of jewellery make the outfit even more elegant. Get the look
Those dragging themselves to the gym or a Pilates class early in the morning or after work, are especially in need of a fashion pick-me-up. The combination of soft sweatpants, basic top and cardigan works wonders; after the workout, just swing your sports bag over your shoulder and you’re all set for a spontaneous shopping spree. Just as practical and beautiful as the outfit itself are these quick beauty helpers, for example the rosy lipstick and refreshing toner. Get the look
A short trip to London? Full-on bargain hunting or a visit to the organic market? Those who like it chic but comfortable, rely on loosely cut basics. Flowing pants worn together with a knitted jumper and sneakers are both presentable and comfortable. Check your foundation, put on your sunglasses and off you go! Get the look
