When we spoke to stylish women about their preferred spots to pick up a cashmere jumper, five of our experts mentioned Uniqlo for the brand’s comfort-over-everything approach to cashmere ― including The Water Cure novelist Sophie Mackintosh and Antony Gormley Studio coordinator Elena Davidson. Davidson says, “I still regularly wear a dusty-pink round-neck jumper I bought six years ago that I pair with my Acne scarf for lockdown walks, or with jeans to work ― it’s supersoft and long-lasting.”
And though it may seem counterintuitive to chat about cashmere during a mini-heatwave, we feel obliged to share that Uniqlo’s cashmere sale has started. You can cop 25 percent off everything from crewnecks to turtlenecks, in a wide range of colours and sizes (although the cardigans are set at 22 percent off). Add to your basket now, and feel smug when October’s autumnal breeze rolls around.
