Classic cashmere, Canada Goose and spy style
Allude has been steadily gaining ground in the knitwear market since its launch in 1993. Hardly a chestbeater of a brand, the quietly luxe German label has more than 720 stockists across 32 countries. Steering clear of flash-in-the-pan trends, it hopes to create cashmere that will last a lifetime, and its ‘cashmere clinic’ is dedicated to reviving old pieces, whether they ’re 100-per- cent cashmere or a blend; Allude items or by another label. Send in your woolly and Allude will provide a professional care-and-repair service, including de-pilling and invisible hole repair. It’s the opposite of throwaway fashion.
