Glynis Traill-Nash, THE AUSTRALIAN
So much has happened in the past month — global resort shows, Cannes, the Met Gala, the Logies — that it’s hard to know where to start chipping away at fashion’s coalface. And in times of confusion and uncertainty, comfort is required. If it comes in cashmere, even better.
Australia has been a hotbed of great cashmere-driven fashion brands in the past decade (Jac + Jack, Banjo & Matilda, Gasparre, to name a few), and we have a new one to get to know in the form of Theron.
The product of Sydney-based Edwina Horseman and London-based (formerly New York-based) Morgan Pilcher (daughter of former Vogue editor Nancy and fashion editor of Porter magazine), Theron (theron-nyc.com) offers “luxurious staples for everyday wearing”, Horseman tells Buzz.
The brand, launched in March, has a range of classic sweaters and polonecks in neutral tones such as black, charcoal, dove grey and navy (Aerin sweater pictured). Particularly fetching is the brand’s back-buttoning crew-neck jumper, born out of necessity when Horseman was pregnant. “I loved the idea of something oversized but thought it needed a detail so it didn’t look too much like a bag, plus you could unbutton it and throw it over your shoulders,” she said.
