If you think about the softer and most luxurious fabrics in existence, it is very probable that you end up thinking about cashmere. While many brands sell this fabric, the first one that comes to mind may very well be the french label Eric Bompard. I absolutely adore their V neck pullovers, and in their latest collection I found some pieces that I would definitely add to my wardrobe.
What, for Monsieur Bompard, began with a trip to the Gobi Desert in the early 80’s with the subsequent discovery of the Capra Hisca (a small goat that lives and thrives in extreme climatic variations, giving it its long soft hair) ended up becoming a leading brand. The key: to create high quality garments with cashmere as its main ingredient.
For this autumn campaign, they chose to feature the always beautiful and very sexy Monica Bellucci as their brand ambassador. A perfect match I would say taking into consideration how Bellucci embodies the idea of luxury, beauty and sensuality.
“She is the ultimate muse – multi-talented and independent as well as beautiful – and perfectly represents our luxury brand.” says Eric Bompard.
The campaign was shot in Argentina, on the colorful streets of Buenos Aires but also stretching out into the immensity of the glaciers and deserts of the wild and beautiful Argentinean south.
The collection includes a selection of accessories. Don’t miss out on the printed large scarfs, like the one with the “Kilimanjaro” print. I will definitely try the ribbed mittens (75€ ).
We all know that cashmere is not the cheapest option. But it is, in fact, the most durable and environmentally friendly for the winter, having the potential to become an investment that will accompany you for years. For stockists, check out their website or buy them online.✿

Autumn is already here. Of course in Barcelona we’re still enjoying some fabulous sunny days (including diving into the pool every now & then), but the mood is starting to change and quite frankly, I am a looking forward a bit for some knitted garments!
This sweater from Elise Berger is lovely. I like the details in silk and its oversized shape. Other options I found on the web are this sweater dress from 3.1 Phillip Lim, this a-m-a-z-i-n-g cardigan by Kimberly Ovin, this knitted cape by Preen and these two garments from See by Chloé. I can almost feel the colder days approaching!•
El otoño ya está aquí. Claro que en Barcelona todavía tenemos estos fantásticos días soleados (y de hecho algún chapuzón en la piscina hay), pero el ambiente empieza a cambiar, y siendo franca, estoy esperando un poco llevar otro tipo de ropa, sobre todo lana y punto.
Este suéter de Elise Berger es precioso. Me gustan los detalles en seda y la forma oversize. Otras opciones que encontré en la web este vestido/suéter de 3.1 Phillip Lim, este fantástico cárdigan de Kimberly Ovin, la capa tejida de Preen y éstas dos prendas de See by Chloé. Casi que puedo sentir los días fríos acercarse! •
