Gift ideas: Italian cashmere, French delights

Falconeri v-neck cashmere sweater with side slits, blue.

Italian cashmere, reasonably priced…

Yes, we’ve done some shopping here! 😉 I’ve been perusing the Falconeri website for the last few months, and was eager to visit their shops in person when we landed in Italy. (I believe they have a shop in NYC, too, if you’re in that area.)

The quality of the cashmere is quite good, and we did not leave empty-handed. I purchased the v-neck style above in a gorgeous bright green for those chilly days ahead. It’s incredibly soft and has a lovely drape. (Size Small on me still has a slouchy, oversized fit.)

Falconeri reversible cashmere down vest, light vanilla..

I also couldn’t resist this reversible down vest in the “light vanilla” color. (Water-repellent fabric on one side, matte cashmere on the other.) I love the knit collar, which layers easily under a jacket or coat. I took the small, which is fitted but not tight on me.

👉 holiday gift idea for men: le Monsieur also picked up a lightweight cashmere pullover, which he has already worn a couple of times and loves!

Standard delivery is free, and returns are easy online. (I believe they are free as well, but will confirm.)

  1. With the chance to shop these gorgeous shops in Italy, I would have a problem staying away. I love the V neck cashmere sweater, and the fact that the looser drape is popular. I like that style, and it doesn’t cling to any back bumps 🙂 I appreciate the effort that you put into the blog even on your vacation, and soak it up.

  2. I am loving your posts from Italy! Love scenic shots and your choice of outfits. Cashmere never goes out of style! My daughter loves to find vintage cashmere in small shops when we do our mom daughter trips.

  3. Good purchases. I cannot link through to all of them, but the company seems to provide quality stuff which will last you for years. And you will always be reminded of this holiday when you put it on. That is the beauty of buying things on holiday.

  4. The cashmere sweaters are beautiful but they “can’t find my size.” LOL. Their “LL” is probably a size 10-12. I…am not.

  5. Thank you for your posts which are most appreciated while you travel thru Europe.
    I am definitely going to order my hubby a cashmere sweater for the holidays.
    Great site & find but wish they made larger sizes for woman.
    Ciao baby!!!
