I always get cold and love to have a cover up in my bag. While I was in Tenerife over half term I lived in this hooded cape by the talented Elaine Madigan, an Irish designer I met at the Arthur Cox Fashion Show a while ago.
With a chill in the air again today, this piece is the perfect item to layer over a summer dress or shorts.
The colour is a soft taupe that goes with everything. I can wear it over a bikini, or under a denim or leather jacket. I will keep this in my bag for traveling this summer .
The cashmere is the same as used by Loro Piana; it is super soft and lightweight, perfect for summer.
Elaine has designed lots of gorgeous pieces, and with the pound so strong against the Euro it is worth taking a look.
