Like liberty and the pursuit of happiness, wearing cashmere is every woman’s inalienable right.
Which makes it all the more annoying that it’s been co-opted by twinset-wearing prepsters and polo-watching debs.
But Raw 7 gives cashmere back to the people. Each uniform-inspired design (either a long-sleeve pullover or a zippered hoodie) has an assortment of oversize emblems, seals, and regal crests with exaggerated phoenixes combined with hand-embroidered phrases or asymmetrical argyle. And in colors like jade, peacock, and wine, the line’s more urban savvy than uptown prissy.
So you can get all the warmth and softness with none of the attitude — just as you should.
A truth we hold to be self-evident.
