Fashion: cashmere

People are positively obsessive about cashmere. The actor and director Vincent Gallo sleeps under blankets made of the stuff. Clements Ribeiro, who have made their stripy cashmere T-shirts and twin-sets a must-have for anyone with a couple of hundred pounds to spend, are rarely seen in anything else. Their new baby even has a cashmere security blanket. And the thing about it is once you've worn it, there's no turning back. So if you are feeling a little self-indulgent this autumn, have a look at the ranges by TSE New York (now designed by British avant-garde designer Hussein Chalayan), Narciso Rodriguez, Whistles and MaxMara. A little cashmere goes a long way.
