Back to Work

Welcome to our September newsletter. After a very unusual Summer this year, we are adjusting to our new back to work routines. According to Jo Ellison, Financial Times Associate Editor September is the new January and feels like the most significant reset of the year. September is the perfect time to dive into new projects, kick-start a new reading list and brings the opportunity of a new clean slate. 

Here are some of our favourite Back to Work pieces to wear this September

Style Reset

Not only does September bring the opportunity for a fresh start, it is also the time to pack away our Summer wardrobes and get ready for the colder Autumn Winter months. September is the perfect time to hit reset and infuse our wardrobes with new colours, textures and styles to enter into the new season. Read our latest blog post on Autumn Winter 2020 Trends for some new season style inspiration. 

Upgrade your wardrobe this season with a unique Castanea cashmere that can be worn time and time again and will be a staple piece for seasons to come. Here are some of our top picks:

Spotlight on Accessories

As we transition into the colder Autumn Winter months cashmere accessories are the perfect addition to your wardrobe. Layer your cashmere for added warmth and experience ultimate comfort all day long in one of our luxury scarves made from 100% cashmere.

Autumn Winter Style Inspiration

As always, we will be bringing you style inspiration for your new Autumn Winter wardrobe over on our Instagram page each week. Tune in every Friday to see how we style each piece from Castanea’s Autumn Winter collection. Our most recent style edit featured our June Cardigan.

August Newsletter

By | Newsletter, Uncategorized | No Comments

Hello and welcome to Castanea’s August Newsletter. We have lots in store for you this month including a sneak peek at our Autumn Winter 2020 Collection, some Summer style inspiration and an insight into our #MyCastanea Community and what it is all about. 

AW 2020 Collection

We are so excited to share a sneak peek of our Autumn Winter 2020 Collection with you, the full collection will be launching at the end of the month. The collection is a reflection of old Ireland with a splash of a modern New York. 

We have some beautiful waffle and honeycomb knit textures that echo the traditional techniques of old Irish knitting. However, we have added a slice of modernity with long contrast straps, beautiful ties, directional ribbing and detailed cuffs. 

Our colour pallet is rich and contemporary with some beautiful notes of the west of Ireland. Deep ink navy and blacks, khaki and artichoke greens, as we daydream of a rugged landscape that captures our hearts. We are introducing the most delicate winter white and a beautiful soft pink known as glamour, a nod to bog-rosemary, a flower native to Ireland that turns from a beautiful white to pink as it grows. 

This collection consists of lofty hoodies, oversized sweaters, delicate cardigans and textural scarfs all made from beautiful 100% cashmere.

The full Autumn Winter 2020 Collection will be available on www.castanea.ie exclusively at the end of the month. 

Summer Style Inspiration

Our latest style edit was inspired by the fabulous Louise Stokes, Owner of Loulerie Jewellery. We absolutely love Louise’s chic style and how she accessorises her outfits with the most beautiful jewellery. Our Thapa sweater is the perfect cashmere sweater for warmer summer months as it is made from featherweight 100% cashmere with beautiful silk/cashmere cuff details, making it light yet warm. Shop the Thapa here.

Hello and Welcome to Castanea’s June Newsletter! This month features our June picks of the month, the winners of our latest competition, a cashmere care guide and some fashion inspiration for styling your Castanea garments.

Picks of the Month

Our favourite products this month are the Girolata sweater In Parfume, the Atriona sweater in Kola/Dayglo and the Jim sweater in Dayglo. These stunning pieces are vibrant in colour and made with 100% cashmere making them the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe.

Design Your Own Cashmere Competition

In an attempt to encourage aspiring designers to make the most of their extra time spent at home recently, Castanea decided to create a design competition to allow designers to reflect. To use this time to draw inspiration from past experiences, movies you have loved, art you have been moved by, structures that blew you away, books you couldn’t put down.

The winning design will be made from 100% cashmere for our Spring Summer 2020 collection. It will also be showcased and New York and Paris Fashion Week and sold in partnership with our International & Irish stockist Havana Boutique, Emporium Kalu, Samui and Les Jumelles with all profits donated to charity.

We were absolutely blown away with the sheer talent and amazing designs that were entered into the competition. It was so inspiring to see everyone’s sketches, mood boards and hear the stories behind their designs. Huge congratulations to our winners Renate Murphy and Jane Ritchie, we cannot wait to bring your sketches to life.

How to Care for Your Cashmere

Cashmere pieces are a staple in your wardrobe that you will have for life. However, cashmere does fall into the hand wash and dry clean only category and there are harsh consequences to washing your cashmere incorrectly. To ensure that you get the most out of your cashmere, follow our step by step guide on how to care for your cashmere.
