Winning the Sports Luxe Trend with N.Peal CashmereOne of our favourite trends for summer 2017, sports luxe style certainly isn't just for the gym. In fact, the very essence of the sports luxe trend is that it is much too sophisticated to be worn on the treadmill ... think cashmere lounge trousers and soft knitted hooded sweaters, just like those you'll find in the exquisite N.Peal Spring Summer 2017 collection.
We've taken inspiration from the sports luxe looks of the catwalk, and translated them into easy to wear, yet perfectly polished cashmere pieces that you can wear all summer and beyond into the cooler seasons. From weekend brunches to breezy holiday evenings, you'll soon find that our casual Mongolian cashmere styles are fabulously versatile, and they score highly with the must-have sports luxe trend too. Here are just some of our favourite pieces from our collections of Women's and Men's cashmere - showcased in our stunning video above - to help your summer wardrobe go the distance!
Men's Milano Cashmere Jacket - in Fumo Grey
With an unmistakably sporty silhouette, yet beautifully elegant details and in a timeless shade of Fumo Grey, the Milano Cashmere Jacket is a wonderful addition to our men's cashmere jackets collection. With jeans and a Dual Tone Polo Shirt, it's a refined daytime look, or with suit trousers and a crisp white shirt with a grandad collar, it completes a quirky yet effortlessly cool evening look. Already proving a favourite with N.Peal customers, we've also made this jacket available in Navy Blue.
Women's Pyjama Bottoms - in Black & Oyster
Don't be mistaken by the name of our elegant cashmere trousers they are far too delightful to be worn to bed! Crafted from a gorgeous blend of 70% cashmere and 30% silk, our Pyjama Bottoms are a delightful new style with leg-lengthening contrast side piping that gives a nod to the sports luxe trend too. The straight leg cut looks great with simple heels and a light blouse, or can be dressed down for cooler daytimes with clean white sneakers and a Superfine Textured Stripe Cashmere Sweater in White Marl & Black.
Men's Hooded Zipped Cashmere Top - in Selvedge
Every man's wardrobe needs a cosy hoodie, and our Hooded Zipped Cashmere Top in Selvedge, a cool and classic shade of denim blue, ticks all of the casualwear boxes. A sumptuous interpretation of a sportswear staple, this soft hooded cashmere cardigan is ideal for throwing on over a T-shirt and jeans whilst travelling, layering underneath a denim or leather jacket, and of course, cooling down at the gym or after sports. And as you'll soon find that just one of these men's cashmere hoodies is not enough, it is available in three more colours, Flint Grey, Derby Grey and Fumo Grey.
Women's Raglan Cashmere Sweater with Lurex - in New Ivory & Bronze
Taking cues from the athletic details of baseball jerseys, and then combining with plenty of N.Peal's signature glamour, we've created our fabulous Raglan Cashmere Sweater with Lurex. Subtle sparkle to the shoulders and cuffs, side splits and a flattering neckline ensures that this piece is fabulously feminine, whilst the sports-inspired Bronze stripes add interest, and in a soft shade of New Ivory this elegant sweater will never go out of style. During the summer months, wear with slim-fitted jeans or linen trousers, and then when the weather begins to cool, wear underneath a Fur Placket Milano Gilet to perfect transitional dressing.
