Cross Cashmere

Fashion, Photoshoots

Since publishing a book about the rich heritage of cashmere in Scotland, after years of working for a Scottish mill, journalist (and total #girlboss) Lynne McCrossan decided to practise what she preached, and create a capsule collection of the highest quality Scottish cashmere. The collection consists of 6 essential and versatile styles in beautiful knitwear, made for man and woman alike. Here are the shots from an editorial for Cross Cashmere with myself and Paul Keenan (of mens fashion and lifestyle blog thekeenanone.com) modelling for fashion photographer Julie Howden. Let me know what you think, and look out for Cross Cashmere featuring in an upcoming episode of Iluminate for BBC The Social.

We shot these looks- and a few others still to come- in the beautiful gardens and parks around Carlton Hill overlooking Edinburgh, in the freezing cold last month. Good thing Lynne provided us with an open fire, baked potatoes and an ample supply of gorgeous cashmere! The full Cross Cashmere collection also includes a classic Argyll jumper, plus a T-shirt and hoodie, which are surprisingly easy to wear and modern in cashmere. The capsule builds on the premise of slow fashion, a more ethical process of investing in classic pieces that can be worn for decades and passed on through generations, styled in endless ways dressed up or down.
