Not an enforced message of love on Valentine’s Day but a charity initiative with a heart. Chinti & Parker cashmere sweaters are expensive but all the proceeds from their latest collaboration go to the Women For Women non-profit organisation. The aim of which is to ‘help women survivors of war rebuild their lives.’ And as a brand founded by women, Chinti & Parker wanted to do their bit to support other women. The photo above shows Brita Fernandez Schmidt executive director of Women For Women (left) with ambassador Arizona Muse (in the middle) and Anna Singh co-founder of Chinti & Parker (right).

  1. Love the idea of a cashmere purchase helping fund women in war torn areas , but I don’t like the aesthetic of these sweaters .
    The main range is full of cutesy hearts and polka dots so not for me.
    First thing I noticed here were Brita’s bunny lines, is this a look we increasingly accept as looking ‘young’ so ‘good’?

  2. Hi Zanna, Thanks for your comment. Agree, not all the jumpers are for me – though I do like the LOVE one Arizona Muse is wearing – and it’s for a very good cause. I believe in ageing naturally and would never promote Botox or fillers but it’s a personal choice. This is the official Chinti & Parker portrait showing three women of different ages; I’m just sharing the information.

  3. Brita, Anna and Arizona look great in their sweaters. Always good to see lovely smiles like these. Completely beyond my budget, but I had already heard of Brita and think she does an amazing job with this charity.
    As someone who loves style, I really enjoy seeing these fashion led aid initiatives and hope this raises some big bucks for them.

  4. I agree with Jodie. I wouldn’t buy or wear these jumpers but I wholly approve of the initiative to support those in difficult circumstances. Thanks for bringing to our attention.
    And I agree with regards facial enhancement. Everyone to their own. I have aged reasonably well and done without any. So reliant on good life style, low alcohol and controlled sunbathing instead. Keep up the interesting and varied posts.

  5. I think the “Love” sweater is great and what a fantastic cause. I love that fashion is collaborating with charities and will support them for sure. I have a wedding to go to – and am wondering if you think the “Love” sweater with good black trousers would be OK for the rehearsal dinner? I’m really not into dresses anymore, and I think it would be fun!

    1. I ordered it – I think it’ll be great and such a good cause. BTW I have “bunny” lines as does my daughter and granddaughter. I love them and find them adorable.

  6. Not for me…I gave up wearing slogans on my chest aeons ago. However I presume you can give to the charity, or something similar, without buying the sweater.

  7. Brita is – or perhaps was – the UK Director of Women for Women. I don’t think she has anything to do with founding Chianti and Parker but she has certainly encouraged lots of fashion companies to initiate charitable sponsorship.

  8. I was ignorant of bunny lines as a term also. And looked up what it means. Now I know. When I saw this post I was aware of the group of attractive women and these intarsia pullovers, nothing else.

  9. Following on from KSL’s (lovely art work Kathy) comment for “rehearsal dinner” I was wondering Alyson if you had any suggestions for “mother of the bride” for end of April 2018. We don’t have rehearsal dinners here in Northern Ireland (at least we’re not!). I’m finding it difficult to get the combination of my style but a bit more, comfortable, wear after the wedding – I’m a 5’ 1” size 14. Appreciate your thoughts.

  10. Yes please Alyson to “mother of the bride” outfit ideas. I shall be mother of the groom when my older son marries in a chateau in South West France in early June. Comfort but also the weather will dictate what I chose to wear. And layerings and shoes one can dance in.

  11. By the way Alyson I really enjoyed your chat with Kat, over on the Barbour blog. Really interesting, I especially liked your comment about other women being an inspiration. I don’t read fashion mags anymore ( I follow style blogs like you and disneyrollergirl ) but I love seeing great style when I’m out and about.
    Kat is so lovely. What a great role model for young women – so smart and thoughtful.

  12. There’s a lot of loving slogans and hearts peppering the tops in several brands this year. Hush who I ususally like seems to be compulsively festooning the bosoms of everything they stock and here are some rather more expensive ones. Not my thing but if you love them then good on you, this is the moment to stock up!
    But like others it’s the bunny lines thing in the first comment that really sucked me in, another thing I never knew I needed to worry about! Similar sensations swept over me to when I first heard that saggy knees were the current ageing celebrity obsession – first incredulity, then obviously I checked my previously ignored knees (which seem to be aging gracefully) then I thought this stuff is pernicious.
    That women use Botox makes me sad – but I’m not going to judge them. That women are then shamed in the media for having “tell tale lines” that indicate they have succumbed to the media hype and injected poison into their faces to look younger sums up our society’s attitude to women and aging.

    1. I agree with you Maureen. I thought the comment was rather rude and disrespectful but, yes, symptomatic of the times we are in. I think Crista is very attractive, and admirable for what she does. I can’t imagine many people are looking at the sides of her nose.
