Creamy cashmere by Eric Bompard

The 1AM Promenade

Cashmere Coat & Scarf – On loan from Eric Bompard, Cashmere blend jumper – Uniqlo, Jeans – c/o Levi’s, Brogues – Office, Clutch – c/o Chanel

If I used ‘soft‘ to describe cashmere, would that put me in the Humour, lack-thereof category in Bloglovin’? You see, ‘soft’ really doesn’t cut it when describing the furry ball of rainbow scrunched up in your hand, slippery and foamy all at the same time. Soft is for sentences like ‘Baby here’s your Gilette, the enchanted forest must go, I liked your legs soft and smooth’. Best not put me in a game show, I don’t stand a chance in explaining the fabric without using words like supercalifragilisticexpialidocious or MAGIC. Isn’t everything MAGIC when it’s sparkly and furry anyway. What’s a Paris visit without a visit to Eric Bompard, the one brand that is understood to have reached the prime shelves of practically every Parisian’s wardrobe?  You should’ve seen this one black 100% cashmere poloneck that would’ve banished every piece but a pair of grey skinnies and black stilettos from my mood-rail for the rest of the season… Lorraine kindly let me borrow a coat and scarf for the night as I’d underpacked for the weather, which probably was a very big mistake – not the underpacking – the getting an unintended taste of the… MAGIC, and having to give it back. See me go my precious with a coat.

Thank you Lorraine & Gabriel for the invitation, and Carrie for helping with the shots!

  10. Omo, so much cashmere! It looks so comfy and it serves to remind me just how close winter truly is; now if only the weather (at least in NY) could stop pretending that it’s April. Sounds like it was a great visit, thank you for sharing.

  11. I was thinking soft and buttery the entire time too! I don’t know which word would be better but I can definitely how beautiful it would to run the cashmere through the fingers. Your photos are really that to good to convey such a sensation. Anyway your outfit is perfect.

  39. What a gorrrrrgeous coat!! The wonderful thing with E. Bompard knits is they just last forever… I’ve got a decades old sweater which must have more patches than original material – and is still one of my wear-every-day favourites. Though, looking at these photos, I feel I need a new one – bought in Paris directly, naturellement! x

  40. love!
