The Ombre (left) and Zig Zag (right) Cardi-wraps.
If you are anything like me, you will own several Cardi-wraps or a variation of one (at last count I had around 12 styles!). These clever cashmere wraps were spotted on celebrities like Katie Holmes and Jennifer Aniston a few years ago and were actually designed by Hong Kong based Sonya Madden before they were copied by every brand out there. A few years ago Sonya shuttered the business much to the horror of her legions of fans who loved the ease and elegance of her luxe wraps.
Which brings me to the good news. After a three year hiatus and countless of requests, Sonya has relaunched her infamous wraps with a limited edition capsule collection of 7 styles. These new classics are made from 100 per cent cashmere and come in cool new prints that are bang on trend this season including the Zig Zag (inspired by Missoni), Colour Block and the gorgeous Ombre (a shaded white to grey version), all at HK$2,900 each. Other popular styles include the mink trim (HK$3,800) which is perfect for the winter and her classic solid colours (HK$2,600) which include fun shades such as Kelly Green and Power Pink.
Sonya will be taking advanced orders at a private trunk show before launching the collection at retail outlets including the Four Season Spa and Nude is Rude. Visit her showroom to take advantage of her wholesale prices!
The Cardi-wrap Trunk Show is on from Monday October 24 to Friday 28th October, 2011 from 10am to 5pm at 2/F, Welland House, 62 Wellington St, Central, Hong Kong. Out of towners can email requests to firstname.lastname@example.org
