Cozy up this season with sumptuous cashmere fashions from heritage knitwear brand Begg x Co.
When it comes to knitwear, it takes a lot to impress Chicago boutique owner Ikram Goldman—and that’s just what iconic Scottish label Begg x Co has done with its responsibly made cashmere apparel, accessories and homeware. “It’s been a long time since I’ve seen something this luxurious,” enthuses Goldman of this must-wear collection. “From their blankets to their sweaters, these are stunning cashmeres done in beautiful shapes, styles and colors.”

Goldman cites the garments’ playfulness and attention to detail as major reasons she’s a fan, including fabulous shawl collars and cowl necks that perfectly frame the face, plus smartly placed slits in the sweaters.
And while the pieces may be the epitome of chic comfort (“They’re your everyday wear from traveling to just living your life,” says Goldman), they can easily serve an evening look too: “Some of these sweaters could be worn with a ball gown skirt,” explains Goldman, “and some of the long knit skirts could be worn with a bustier. It’s a new world we’re living in where we have so many options in dressing, and to have luxurious collections like Begg x Co feels like it’s a moment to take in and appreciate.”

Simply put, notes Goldman, if you’re going to make cashmere, do something memorable—and so this Scottish label has. “Everybody wants to do a cashmere collection,” she sums up, “but if you do, you have a responsibility to create something really unusual in the patterns and the colors. Begg x Co really hits the mark.” 15 E. Huron St.
