Designed in Italy


Da Vinci in the detail

The cable knit used across the front of this sweater is inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s famous knots.


Data in design

The turtleneck shape was incorporated by Andrea in response to the data-driven design approach used in the collection. With exclusive access to YOOX NET-A- PORTER data, turtlenecks were found to be a long-term customer preference.

Crafted in the UK


Made at Johnstons of Elgin

This sweater is made of 100% cashmere by local supplier Johnstons of Elgin. Not only is the material used natural, but also single-fibred, so while it has been designed to last and be re-loved for years to come, it can also be easily re-made and recycled at the end of its life cycle.


Lasting luxury

Make your loved clothes last

Recommendations from YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP partner Clothes Doctor on how to keep this piece looking its best for years to come. Contact Clothes Doctor for more detailed care and repair advice.

  • Do not iron or steam this sweater as too much heat may shrink the garment.
  • If you notice dry dirt on the garment, avoid washing by brushing the area carefully and lightly with our Clothes Brush.
  • Remove bobbles, lint and hair with our Cashmere Comb in Red Cedarwood which is perfect to depill. Run it gently across the fabric to catch any loose fibres.
  • Store folded, not hanging, and place a Fragrance Bag in the drawer to naturally deter moths.
