WRAPS & PONCHOS
WRAPS & PONCHOS
The wrap is a long piece of fabric, not unlike a blanket, and often without a particular structure, allowing the wearer freedom to style it over their outfits exactly how they desire. The poncho, of South American origin, was worn around the shoulder or around the lower body for protection while horse riding. Nowadays, it is more likely to be sleeveless and worn over the neck. Italeau’s cashmere ponchos sport a boatneck, are available in long or short sizes and although light, they are cozy and warm and perfect for daytime or evening. The 100% Italian-made cashmere wraps, on the other hand, can be worn all year round, enveloping the upper body in their luxurious softness.
Cashmere by nature is a luxury fabric that has been gently wrapping and weaving its magic for thousands of years. Cashmere wraps are authentically made in Italy, and this, combined with how warm they keep you, makes them utterly sumptuous.
Cashmere comes from long, natural fibers which, when woven, create luxurious cashmere accessories for every woman’s wardrobe. Since they get softer with age, cashmere wraps and ponchos are a perfect, timeless essential to match with any outfit the whole year through.
Whether you're pairing it with a casual day look or aiming to get dressed up for a night out, there are many ways to wear a cashmere wrap. Try draping the wrap around your neck so that it hangs perfectly symmetrically, over one shoulder, or even over the head to create that veiled extra layer of warmth. Match it with an elegant blouse and pants with leather flats or simply grab your favorite jeans and t-shirt with ankle boots. As an alternative to simple draping, why not try the poncho style and make a bold statement, or layer it with a super soft cashmere sweater or cashmere cardigan by draping, wrapping or tying.
