Nothing radiates casual refinement like a cable knit sweater: a garment that’s both timeless and fashionable. It can transcend the ever-changing landscape of style trends and will always make people wonder whether you're a self-made millionaire or a man devoted to practical outfits whatever the occasion.
Born in Venice and raised in nearby Vicenza, Carlo Scarpa was known for his ability to combine humble materials with precious ones: an incredible and, until then, unheard of combination which was brought to life thanks to Scarpa's interest in Japanese minimalist architecture and the richer in details Venetian style.
Ask anyone what they think the most luxurious fibre in the world is and chances are, they will reply with either cashmere or silk. We so decided to combine the two for the design of our Fine Knitwear Collection, which is crafted from an ultra-soft blend of luxury silk and cashmere from the Cariaggi Jaipur Collection.
