That’s a Wrap: Claudia Nichole Cashmere’s 4 in 1

Claudia Nichole Newport Stylephile_1

One of the things that make the transition from a Newport summer to fall (and ultimately winter) bearable, is cashmere. Soft and supple, chic and sensational, cashmere is a perennial shoulder season favorite. Claudia Nichole Cashmere is a line of Alashan Cashmere. Claudia Nichole’s “4 in 1” cashmere topper (lClaudia Nichole Newport Stylephileeft) might be the line’s best seller because of its pashmina-meets-poncho versatility and wide spectrum of colors that range from lilac and kiwi to marigold and pomegranate (IslandPursuit.com offers more than 40 colors–CLICK HERE to see). Perfect for travel or paired with a night on the town ensemble to something decidedly casual, the “4 in1” is one of those “have in your closet forever” pieces that will far extend it’s $149.00 price tag (at Island Pursuit or IslandPursuit.com).

Look Who was in Our Neck of the Woods: Vineyard Vines

It’s no surprise that when the Vineyard Vines crew was in Newport for a social media shoot recently, they were charmed when they stumbled across our own Sweet Berry Farm. That means that Vineyard Vines’ 286,000 Instagram followers learned about this fabulous farm gem (which right now is perfect for apple and each pickin’!) Here’s a peek:

Too Kühl for School

womens.jpg.pagespeed.ce.H43f6r3fT3

Admittedly, I had never heard of Kühl clothing before I stopped into Island Pursuit a few weeks ago, but I immediately checked it out. Before Kühl, there was Alfwear, a small outdoor hat company co-founded by three skiers and a rock climber. One of the original founders took the brand to the next level as the line evolved into Kühl, punctuated by its signature Jacquard jacket, a Euro-styled Polartec® kuhl_1fleece top that featured the first innovative thumb-loop cuff system and lightweight underarm gussets for comfort and climate control. Inspired by the founders’ adventurous lifestyle (and those with whom they share a similar ethos) Kühl expanded to include pants, shirts, and more that appeal to outdoor enthusiasts.

I don’t want to think about cold temperatures yet either, but as today is the first day of fall, it’s clear they are right around the corner. The best part about Kühl pieces for women at Island Pursuit is that the jackets and vests are made from high-performance fabrics without sacrificing style. The KÜHL Kozet Vest and Full-Zip Sweater ($109) both feature a beautiful wool blend body fabric (with a unique texture) and a second fabric on the side panels which offers an extra range of motion for

freedom of movement. Even better, “flat lock” stitching increases strength while reducing the bulk. The Grace Long Sleeve Shirt ($55) is super soft and equally flattering as it has gentle rushing across the front and is made with 57% Wildfibre Organic Cotton and a touch of Spandex for stretch and shape retention. Then there’s the Salza dress, a rendition of the long sleeve tee with front and back slimming princess lines and an adjustable wrap belt for multiple styles ($65).

Men will love the Kollusion Jacket made from waterproof/breathable fabric with Polyurethane coating and synthetic wax—perfect to keep in a dry light rain and on cold, dry snow days ($149). The Kommando Crew Shirt ($50-$55) is 100% organic cotton and has useful features like a zip stash pocket and thumbloops. Flannel-style long sleeve shirts ($59-$79) are anything but typical with technical ELUXUR fabric at the yoke, collar and cuffs and for comforting warmth a technical Hollow-core fabric everywhere else.

Don’t forget to take advantage of the special offer Island Pursuit is offering Newport Stylephile readers: Use coupon code NEWPORTSTYLE to get 20% of your entire purchase at Island Pursuit. The fine print: 20% off applies to in-store and online purchases from now until November 1st. Offer is only valid on regular price items and cannot be combined with any other offer.

Out of Pocket Style

frocket 1

I love when I discover a new line I have never heard of here in Newport. When I was recently in Island Pursuit, I spotted bright and bold LSA_Girl_Product-Image_1024x1024super soft cotton tees for women with eye-catching pockets by a company called “Frocket.” Turns out, Frocket is the brainchild of a Dallas designer duo dedicated to “prep apparel, half-cut iced tea, Adirondack chairs, Highway 30A and our feet in the sand.” Trade the ice tea for a Dark n’ Story and Highway 30A for Ocean Drive and you have a style consistent with Newport sass.

“Frocket” comes from the mash-up of “front pocket,” the area the company highlights with patterns ranging from chevron and anchors to plaids, polka dots and paisleys. The line includes long and short sleeve t-shirts, tanks, shorts, women’s v-neck dresses, totes and more. This time of year is perfect for the long-sleeve tee—perfectly comfortable as they’re made of 100% ring-spun cotton, are preshrunk and soft-washed washed ($40.00). Frocket, along with a ton of stylish lines can be found at Island Pursuit.

Don’t forget to take advantage of the special offer Island Pursuit is offering Newport Stylephile readers: Use coupon code NEWPORTSTYLE to get 20% of your entire purchase at Island Pursuit. The fine print: 20% off applies to in-store and online purchases from now until November 1st. Offer is only valid on regular price items and cannot be combined with any other offer.

Hang It Up

10649556_897789813584334_8540772205314878198_nHow fabulous is this little sign spotted at Frazzleberries on Newport’s lower Thames Street?? They have the best signs, mostly tailored to the Newport lifestyle (Gone to Hazard’s, Gone to Bailey’s, Gooseberry Beach, If You’re Lucky Enough to Live in Newport, You’re Lucky Enough, Red Sox Fan, Just Married in Newport, etc.) plus owner Jerry and Katie can custom create signs with weddings dates, personal monograms etc. Love it!

Speaking of polo, we’re entering what might just be the best time of the year to catch Newport’s polo ponies. Now in it’s 23rd season, the Newport International Polo Series continues Saturday afternoons, starting at 4pm. Today, after the match versus Singapore, stick around for the Veuve Clicquot Champagne Toast & Trophy Presentation and witness the art of sabrage. Weilding a replica Napoleonic sword, the sabrage demonstration will be under the direction of former Moet Hennessy expert Jeffrey Pogash (he now is a consultant for Rhode Island’s own  Cocktail Guru. Raise a glass to the competitors, and the winner, with a festive toast. Veuve Clicquot is available by the glass or by the bottle from the fieldside Twisted Pony Bar. Cheers!
