Clothes that feel good as well as look good can lift our spirits substantially.


What better to invest in, then, than a piece of tactile cashmere? Putting it on each morning is like receiving a great big hug, and we could all do with a few more of those these days.

Laura Chambers

Laura Chambers Funnel-neck striped sweater, €450

Soothing cashmere in mood-boosting shades is the signature of Laura Chambers cashmere. Designed using the finest Scottish cashmere and made here in Ireland, each piece will add a beautiful point of difference to your wardrobe and a touch of everyday luxury.

Castanea

Castanea Brook cashmere hoodie, €845

There’s nothing more luxurious than a cashmere hoodie; anything traditionally utilitarian reimagined in a luxe fabric feels terribly indulgent. The perfect relaxed but chic piece for our new normal, Castanea’s Brook cashmere hoodie, €845, is made from an amazing six-ply cashmere and has an oversized fit for a contemporary look.

Madigan

Madigan Lydia cashmere coat, €996

A family-run business, Madigan creates effortlessly elegant cashmere pieces with a minimalist aesthetic. From blanket- soft shades to rich autumnal hues, the coats, cardigans and sweaters are a luxury lover’s dream. The brand’s mission statement is “Made in Ireland, to last a lifetime”. Isn’t that the holy grail of retail right now?
