I recently found a new brand of cashmere that I wanted to tell you about. The brand is called CO2 and they make all sorts of items including clothing for men and women, handbags and jewelry. One of their more distinctive items is their cashmere clothing.
The line of cashmere that they carry is very diverse. You will find cashmere cardigans, cashmere hoodies and many different types of cashmere sweaters. They carry more classic pieces such as a basic cashmere hoodie and short-sleeve shirts. They also carry a lot more trendier items as well including long hooded cardigans, long-sleeve dresses and different wraps and sweaters. The great thing is that the clothes are not too trendy and you won’t have to put them away next year because nobody is wearing that style anymore. Check out some of their cute pieces below.
One of the best things about their clothes is the great prints you will find on them. The prints are gorgeous with beautiful butterfly details splashed on. Check out one that I love here.
This cashmere hoodie is simply gorgeous. It transforms a simple, basic hoodie into much more of a statement piece. Check out the sea green butterfly on the side by the pockets and the smaller turquoise butterfly right below it. The little details on this hoodie make it so fun to wear and you will definitely stand out, even if you are trying to look more casual and relaxed.
The hoodies and other sweaters come in several different colors and the blend of the colors is fantastic. You’ll find a gorgeous mix of blues and browns blended together or a burgundy, purple and gold print swirled together. These prints are perfect when paired with a plain white t-shirt or a cute pair of skinny jeans. Wearing this cashmere will make you instantly feel more dressed up, even when you are just trying to be comfortable and stay warm.
Unfortunately, I found a couple of downsides to the clothing line. The line is a bit thin and not as soft and thick as the traditional cashmere you would think of. While it is still warm, normally, I like my cashmere to be a bit softer. Another concern is the construction of the items. For example, the silk-lined cashmere hoodie looks like it has a silver lining stitched inside. However, the lining is just a piece of fabric that is added to the edges and stops after a few inches. Instead, you would expect something that actually lines the inside of the hoodie. CO2 is not cheap and can actually be a bit expensive. Most items range in price from $195 – $400. The creative designs somewhat make up for the higher price point, but only if you love the designs.
I would recommend checking out this site for their pretty designs, but be careful with the items you select. If you want a cashmere cardigan or cashmere sweater that is different from your basic black cashmere cardigan, check out CO2 Cashmere .
