COFFEE, TEA OR CASHMERE?: Pringle of Scotland has unveiled a capsule collection of 10 cashmere and merino wool separates designed by Sophia Neophitou-Apostolou and aimed at frequent fliers. Called The Perfect 10 Travel Collection, it includes a kimono, a tank dress and top, a jumpsuit, and various sweaters and bottoms. “I wanted to create pieces that work on the plane and off. Wear it during your trip, put on a shoe, and you can go straight to your meeting,” said Neophitou-Apostolou, the owner and editor of 10 magazine. “These are evergreen, luxury basics and we plan to add to the collection each season,” she said.
The collection is sold at Harrods Heathrow Terminal 5 and through airlines including Emirates and Virgin Atlantic. Virgin customers can preorder their items on the airline’s Web site, and have them delivered to the airline’s lounge or their airplane seat. Prices range from 145 pounds, or $230, for a merino wool tank top to 450 pounds, or $710, for a voluminous cashmere wrap. The items come in black, charcoal and Yves Klein blue, and are vacuum packed in silvery gray Pringle branded bags.
