Fashion: The year of the Goat
Since the Goat cashmere label was founded in 2001 by designer Jane Lewis, it has become a byword for glamorous knitwear. Now, this month sees the launch of a capsule collection to mark its 10th anniversary. The pieces bear all the hallmarks of the signature Goat aesthetic – simple, modern elegance in comfy, casual cuts – and you can also pick up two classic pieces from the original collection – the green Lola dress (£395) and Gaia cashmere sweater. Available exclusively from November at matchesfashion.com
