N.Peal Opens Their First New York Store on Madison Avenue

We’re proud to announce that N.Peal recently established its first US store on New York’s City’s Madison Avenue, bringing our classic British cashmere to a new audience. In February 2018, we opened our doors to fashion fans in the heart of the Big Apple’s luxury retail district; a prime location which places our store across the road from The Met Breuer, and close to Central Park.

N.Peal store front New York

N.Peal has certainly come a long way since its origins in London’s Burlington Arcade, the home of our flagship store. Since our inception in 1936, we’ve become one of the UK’s most iconic luxury brands. With a range of UK stores across London in Mayfair, Piccadilly, Knightsbridge and Covent Garden, our new Madison Avenue store is our very first US store, and we’re keen to inject a slice of British luxury to the US fashion market.

N.Peal in-store New York

N.Peal Managing Director Adam Holdsworth said, “Following a successful 2017, in which sales soared to £15 million, the time is right for us to launch our exciting Madison Avenue store that will, in turn, support online growth. We’re on course for a stellar 2018!”

Yorkshireman Holdsworth bought N.Peal in 2006 and transformed the brand into an international success, which included expanding the website for an American audience. He rebuilt the brand, focusing on its rich British heritage and high-quality supply chain, leading N.Peal to become the luxury cashmere brand it is today.

Over the years, we’ve built up a loyal fanbase and our iconic cashmere jumpers have been worn by some of Hollywood’s most famous names including Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Cary Grant and Ava Gardner. N.Peal’s association with A-listers is something we’re thrilled to continue across the pond.

Add a fashionable finishing touch to your outfit with a cashmere cardigan. Our collection of cashmere cardigans has plenty of styles to choose from but one of our most timeless designs is our Round Neck Cashmere Cardigan which has a neat trim finish to ensure your outfit is always beautifully elegant.

This classic cardigan is available in a number of colours; however, our delicate shade of Cornflower Blue suits a complementing colour palette of navy and white or more muted shades such as Sand Brown. Alternatively, take cues from the catwalk and wear your cashmere cardigan with a printed skirt or dress to capture a chic vintage style look.

Our cashmere cardigans are also a fantastic wardrobe staple for men. Choose our Fine Gauge Cardigan in Red Berry and you’ll have a bold cashmere cardigan you’ll enjoy wearing year after year. If you prefer muted colours, Flint Grey is a versatile shade that can be worn to the office or on casual days off. The v-neck detailing looks effortlessly smart when paired with a button down shirt and tie, or over a casual collared polo shirt.

A Classic Roll Neck Jumper

Roll neck jumpers, or ‘turtle necks’ always look effortlessly stylish and have been a wardrobe go-to for decades. Their flattering and versatile cut makes them perfect to wear with a number of outfit combinations and simultaneously captures vintage style and contemporary chic in one design.

Our women’s Super Fine Roll Neck Cashmere Jumper in Black or Navy will look elegant dressed down with jeans and ballet pumps for off-duty days, or with smart tailored trousers or a skirt and heels for the office. Alternatively, you can wear the Rich Coral Pink shade for a pop of colour.

Roll neck cashmere jumpers also rarely go out of style for men. Our men’s Trafalgar Polo Neck Cashmere Jumper in Navy is incredibly versatile and perfect for almost any occasion. It’s also available in Dark Charcoal Grey and Black, so you can have one for almost every situation.

Pair it with chinos and brogues for slick casual look, or layer underneath a tailored coat and suit trousers.

A Cashmere Scarf

A luxurious pure cashmere scarf is the perfect year-round accessory, which can be worn time and time again. Perfect for draping over a summer outfit on cooler evenings, or layering with a warm coat and chunkier knits to keep warm, cashmere scarves not only make the perfect ‘staple’ accessory, they also make fantastic gifts.

Our ladies’ Woven Cashmere Scarf in Heather Camel Brown is ideal for throwing over a blazer and navy trousers. The classic camel shade means your outfit stays on trend, regardless of how long it’s been in your wardrobe.

When you’re out for a stroll, wear your cashmere scarf with a lightweight quilted jacket, jeans and flat boots. For an outfit that ticks all the boxes, team it with a pea coat and flared trousers and embrace delightfully modern style.

Discover how to style your favourite cashmere pieces for spring, using classic items from our N.Peal Women’s Cashmere Collection and Men’s Cashmere Collection.

Embrace Colour for Spring  

When looking for an easy spring wardrobe update, why not introduce a vibrant colour to your look? A piece of colourful knitwear such as our beautiful Boxy Cashmere Poncho in Rich Coral Pink is perfect to wear with your favourite jeans or fitted trousers. A brightly hued cardigan will also update your look on cooler spring days.

Teamed with the classic cut of our men’s cashmere jumpers, we have given that spring wardrobe staple – the pastel shades – a more sophisticated look. Modern colours are toned down by an elegant classic cut but still give a fresh look.

The refreshing mint Green Reflection shade of our men’s Burlington V Neck Cashmere Jumper makes it perfect to wear with tan chinos and loafers, or jeans and trainers for laidback spring style.

Look Stylish in Layers

The key to transitioning your winter wardrobe for spring is to layer your clothing.  Layering is a great way to bring a new twist to any outfit as you can add or remove layers as you see fit. Wear your favourite cashmere jumper over our gorgeous Superfine Cashmere Shell Top for extra warmth or add an Ultrafine Pashmina Cashmere Shawl for effortless transitional style.

Our Fur Trim Hooded Cashmere Gilet is also a versatile piece, which is perfect for those ‘not quite warm enough to leave the coat at home’ spring days.

Men should opt for a classic colour palette on chilly spring mornings, and layer a classic cashmere jumper with our Fine Gauge Zipped Waistcoat in Fumo Grey. Our popular Woven Cashmere Scarf will also keep your look sophisticated throughout spring, until it’s finally warm enough to leave your winter knits behind.

Combine Different Patterns and Textures

Update your winter staples for spring by experimenting with different patterns and textures. Wear a textured skirt with a plain top for the perfect transitional look. Our striking Long Contrast Stripe Cashmere Skirt is suitable to wear for almost any occasion with a variety of light knitted tops or shirts. If you want to bring an extra luxurious touch to your outfit, pair it with our classic Superfine Long Sleeve Cashmere Top.

For an off-duty menswear look, layer a textured sweater like our Cable Half Zip Cashmere Sweater over a simple t-shirt and jeans to ensure your transitional outfit looks effortlessly modern for spring.

Update a Classic Wardrobe Staple

Black leggings are a staple in any women’s wardrobe, and the key to wearing yours for a new season is by updating your accessories. Swap out winter boots and pair them with stylish flat brogues or trainers for an instant spring update. Our Leggings are crafted from a luxurious blend of cashmere and silk to keep your style understated and chic.

Likewise, a navy blue cardigan like our men’s Berkeley Cashmere Cardigan never goes out of style. It’s a timeless piece you can wear day or night, and style it with everything from jeans to tailored trousers.

Wear over a simple white t-shirt, or complement the navy shades with our Superfine Bomber Jacket, which can also be worn with a shirt and tie for sophisticated office style. Finish your outfit with a complementing accessory like our Beanie Cashmere Hat for the perfect transitional look.

Whether you’re hitting the slopes at your favourite ski resort this winter, or taking to the snow for the first time, it’s essential that you dress the part. From your base layer to your boots, you’ll need a complete women’s ski wear wardrobe to stay warm, whilst looking effortlessly stylish on your trip.

In the Women’s Ski Collection from N.Peal you’ll find timeless women’s cashmere pieces that are perfect for ski and snowboard wear, and will take you from the slopes to après-ski drinks with ease. It’s little wonder that cashmere is so popular for ski wear; warm and soft next to the skin, with naturally insulating properties, cashmere knitwear keeps the wearer dry and comfortable – essential for long days out on the mountains.

Inspired by the latest women’s ski fashion trends, discover our five essential cashmere items for your luxury ski wardrobe below.

Base Layer Cashmere Vest – in New Ivory White –  £159

The most important part of your ski wardrobe is its foundations. Start with a lightweight base layer like our sumptuous cashmere vest, which will keep you warm and dry as you perfect your skiing skills.

Our Base Layer Cashmere Vest is made from 100% Mongolian cashmere in our ‘ultrafine’ knit, with delicate rib detailing that is almost sheer and luxuriously soft to the touch. Perfect to wear beneath your ski suit, or one of our chunky cashmere jumpers, this must-have cashmere piece will allow you to layer up without adding bulk to your look.

Antler Cable Roll Neck Cashmere Jumper – in New Ivory White –  £359

Who could resist the gorgeous luxury of our Antler Cable Roll Neck Cashmere Jumper? One the latest additions to the N.Peal collection of cashmere for women, this understated jumper is crafted from our signature 100% Mongolian cashmere with a sleeker style that will slip effortlessly underneath a ski jacket.

However, it’s just as easy to wear with your favourite jeans when back in the chalet. Its classic design has a stylish deep ribbed collar and cuff to keep out the chills, and the eye-catching ‘antler’ design is a modern take on traditional ski fashion. It’s subtle, but oh-so-sophisticated.

Fur Lined Knitted Cashmere Gilet – in Dark Charcoal Grey + Black –  £1, 295

Layers of clothing are the secret to staying warm on your ski trip, and our luxurious Fur Lined Knitted Cashmere Gilet is perfect to complete your look. It can be the finishing touch to your off-piste outfit, or another layer beneath your ski jacket for those chillier days.

Made from the finest quality 100% cashmere and fur, this is an irresistible, stand-out women’s gilet that is guaranteed to turn heads. It even has invisible pockets on the fur side where you can store your skin essentials, such as an SPF lip balm, and it’s completely reversible – ideal if you like to pack light. The generously sized hood will come in handy when it begins to snow, too!

Stripe Detail Lounge Cashmere Trousers – in Black + Fumo Grey –  £279

Stay one step ahead of the skiing fashion trends while you’re on the slopes with our Stripe Detail Lounge Cashmere Trousers. The ribbed cuff of the ankle will allow them to be worn with ease underneath your ski trousers or salopettes, yet they’re just as versatile away from the snow thanks to the extra stylish detailing such a drawstring waist, two front pockets and a contrasting stripe down each leg.

You’ll be incredibly impressed by the versatility of these cashmere trousers, and they’ll keep you delightfully warm too. Just add our Round Neck Cashmere Jumper for top-to-toe comfort.

Ribbed Cashmere Hat with Racoon Pom – in Flannel Grey –   £149

No women’s ski look could be complete without a fabulous hat, and our best-selling Ribbed Cashmere Hat with Racoon Pom ticks all the boxes. It will keep your head warm and your ears guarded from the wind, and with our signature ribbed knit and stunning raccoon pom pom, it’s right on trend too.
