cool (weather) clothes

July 15th, 2009


While temperatures are on the rise, cool weather will be back soon enough – a chilling thought.  Enter COMO Shambhala’s Active Living Collection knitwear.

Ideal for both in and out of the studio, the pieces provide the perfect extra layer during the fickle autumn months.  The lightweight, cashmere Cozy Cardigan has sleeves that can be tied, wrapped, or left open – the antidote for fall’s fluctuating temperatures; the dramatically dip-dyed cashmere Degrade Shawl is great for wrapping up post-class.  Other knitwear includes a Zip-Up Hoodie with a double layer of cashmere knit, and a lightweight, oversized, “boyfriend” V-Neck Jumper.


COMO Shambhala is the wellness concept that is part of the COMO Group, Christina Ong’s unique vision of contemporary living.  The COMO Group encompasses Club 21, the international luxury fashion retailer (which runs the Giorgio and Emporio Armani franchises in Britain) and COMO Hotels and Resorts.  Yoga is fundamental to the experience at all of these properties; for example at Parrot Cay in Turks & Caicos, yoga is offered daily.  The resorts also host retreats throughout the year, featuring top yogis like Rodney Yee and Erich Schiffman.


Note:  Designed by Amy Roberts (head of womenswear at Mulberry, formerly of John Galliano and Ghost), the Active Living Collection is conceived with a clear understanding of technical requirements as well as a unique sense of style.  With pieces for men and women, the collection features neutral shades of white, off-white, charcoal and black, stone, pearl, and flint, with injections of warm red and khaki.  This reflects the core components of the COMO Shambhala brand – its belief in efficacy, quality, and understatement – that owns and operates some of the world’s leading retreat centers, including COMO Shambhala Estate in Bali.
