Eric Bompard's sale offers 25-30% off on most things; the 100% cashmere mariniere was a more enticing -40%, now €141. I chose black/white. (Note: links go to site, not item.)
Fine, single-colour stripes work on me if the piece is not oversized. This has the quiet quality confirmed by the twelve-item Wardrobe Challenge and the versatility I'll need when I have a clothes closet formerly called "broom".
|Hand it to her|
If you're looking for a gift to please most any woman, pick up these warm, light, washable 100% cashmere gloves now, on sale for €33, and pack away for a birthday or other occasion. The commenter who said she'd like to wear cocktail rings but they don't fit under gloves? Here's a solution that comes in scores of delectable colours.
|Great jacket for travel|
The 70% cashmere/30% silk army jacket is a chic choice for smaller-busted women, and is 35% off, €136. Versatile, softer than a jacket, and equally polished with jeans or a skirt. Limited sizes.
The 16-ply ribbed cashmere ribbed jacket with leather buckles is substantial, with price to match. If if one hankers for a cashmere coccoon for apres ski, travel or staying warm in serious drafts, this is it, and it's one of the relatively few -40% items. Sale price, €322.
If that's too much length for you, the 100% cashmere bolero provides 8-ply delight and the charm of semi-circular ribs. Another of the -40% pieces, €228.
I'm still wearing my Bompard cashmeres a dozen or more years later, so you will get the value out of your purchase.
One of their standout items is the reversible (actually double-sided) cashmere scarf, on sale now at -25%, €65, in striking combinations such as new camel/flame orange, shown. Plenty of time to enjoy if you're in frigid temps now!
Sale continues to Feb. 15, colours and sizes grow more limited as the days pass. Delivery can take up to three weeks for sale items.
