Crimson Cashmere has been providing luxurious cashmere sweaters and clothing to in-the-know Parisians for over 25 years. When former model, designer and fashion guru, Linda Wright, took Crimson’s reigns in 2004, she added a new dimension to Crimson’s renowned quality; adjusting sizes and details to better meet the needs of her demanding customers. The result is a concise collection of modern, sophisticated and sumptuous pieces for discerning men and women.
True quality cashmere is rare in today's market, and Crimson continually strives to maintain that level of luxury that Crimson is proud to call its own.
Linda's wish to put Crimson online was driven by popular demand, from both her local following and her growing number of international fans - fans made up of visitors to Paris who have strolled past her boutique, popped in to look around, and fallen in love.
Passion is at the core of Crimson Cashmere; a combination of Linda’s love affair with Paris and the fashion world. Linda’s entire professional life has been centred around fashion. A native Texan, Linda decided to move to Paris some 30 years ago, at the end of her modeling career. She subsequently worked as a fashion editor and, for several years, enjoyed an incredible apprenticeship with Ralph Lauren.
Constantly exposed to fashion trends and changing designs, Linda recognised the timelessness of knitwear, combined with its essential, sensual quality. In her words, “I love the way it takes on the form and curves of the body. It’s soft, sensuous and sexy - and just feels good on. And colour-range is endless.” When Linda spotted the opportunity to develop Crimson Cashmere, it was the perfect fit.
