A chic cache of cosy cashmere

A Mongolian designer’s online treasure trove of featherweight finds and sumptuous spreads

It sometimes seems like winter has little to recommend it, but the freezing temperatures do offer the perfect excuse forcocooning oneself in cashmere. Buying from Oyuna means that the cocoon can becreated without even setting foot outside, as Mongoliandesigner Oyuna Tserendorj and her team of “international cashmere lovers” have created a website that sells super-soft, top-end cashmere for both the person and the home.

The fashion offeringconsists of a seasonal line of wardrobe essentials (from £295) – cardigans, pullovers,jackets, coats and a rather chic dress cut with a twist to create a flattering, close-fitting drape (Isha dress, £595) – along with a selection of loungewear (from £449). Temptingaccessories for men and women include gloves with witty, colouredring bands (Ring gloves, first picture, £79) and the rather dashing Kuadro men’s shawl (£349). There is also a range of fine shawls for women (from £349).


On the home front, thefocus is on that most versatile of household accessories, the throw. There is the Gallery Throws range (from £575), described as “bold experiments in simplicity” and featuring therichly coloured Tundra throw (£799) and double-sided, two-colour Dia throws (£575). There is also the Timeless Throws collection (from £649, Etra throws in second picture) for lovers of all things classicand super-fine, and the Featherweight Throws line (from £449), designed to be layered oneon top of another, and which includes the colourful, graphic Spektra (third picture, £595). There are matching Spektra cushion covers (from £199) and a range ofsumptuous woven bedspreads with wide contrast-colour borders (Etra bedspread,£1,350).

Oyuna knows that when it comes to luxury retailing, it’s the small details that make allthe difference. Of note is the thin leather strap that comeswith the travel throw and serves as both a carry handle when the throw isrolled up and as a shape-giving belt when it’s being worn (from £475). This website is a true travel essential.
