Cashmere Wool

Zadig and Voltaire's fashion presentation focuses on joys of cashmere

Cherie Chung

Former actress Cherie Chung Chor-hung is certainly a star who is not afraid to show off her assets at public events and on the red carpet. She might opt for body-hugging gowns in the spotlight but when she's off-duty, Chung loves her cosy knits.

An audience with Italy's 'king of cashmere'

Looks from Bruno Cucinelli's autumn-winter 2012/13 collection.

An hour with Brunello Cucinelli is not spent discussing colours, next season's shapes or spreadsheets. When we meet in Milan, just before the presentation of his spring-summer 2013 collection, he instead peppers the conversation with quotes from Aristotle, Kant or Confucius.

The metro

I came back from Milan two weeks ago with only one new pair of shoes - grey patent lace ups from Dolce & Gabbana - autumn versions of the shoes I bought last summer. I've always returned from my Milan trips with a new wardrobe. The city was my fashion Holy Grail, but this last trip seemed more like torture rather than a pilgrimage to the shopping gods.

Easy on the eye, easy on the body

It was just after lunchtime at Joyce in the Galleria, and all the tai-tais had come out to play. A few ambled over to the Rebecca Moses corner where the dark-haired sophisticate was holding court over her eponymous collection - but also because the separates that hung from its racks almost beckoned to be tried on.
