In the Fall of 2010, when my store was open, I wrote down my ideas about clothing and style in a document titled “Style Manifesto”. You can read the full text here, but the introductory paragraph describes the basic concept around which I created my store:
At Isle of Skye Cashmere, our selection of clothes is based on a personal aesthetic that values classic style and quality over fashion and fad.
Our style sense starts with the idea that a woman’s wardrobe should be built on a foundation of high quality classic pieces. These foundation pieces should be your investment pieces – of lasting quality and the best you can afford.
Although my store has closed and I am focusing on my online cashmere sweater business, my ideas about this business have not changed.
My goal is to help you look and feel your best in our sweaters. I specialize in selling my own brand of cashmere sweaters knit in Scotland with only the very best yarn. Isle of Skye Cashmere sweaters are designed and made to look better, feel better, and last longer than any other sweaters you own. They are knit and hand-finished by the mills that make cashmere sweaters for Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Hermes. The cashmere sweaters from our mills stand apart in the runway shows in Paris and Milan because their attention to the details of style, fit, finish, and overall quality make them the best in the world.
I believe in a classic, sophisticated style of dressing that emphasizes beautiful fabrics, impeccable fit, and a foundation of basic colors. Our selection of cashmere sweater styles and colors reflects this point of view.
