“Keep Up the Chic” When Temps Drop 

During winter months, shoppers are seeking advice on how to beat the chill without sacrificing style. Here at Stella Carakasi, our stylists direct customers to our Peruvian Alpaca collection; the perfect starting point when building a fashionable and functional winter wardrobe.

Stella Carakasi has a particular knack for creating stunning designs that also meet women’s everyday needs. On a trip to Peru, Stella was inspired to create a collection of superbly tailored coats and sublimely soft sweaters after learning about the amazing properties of alpaca.

Alpaca is one of nature’s softest and most luxurious fibers and has some surprisingly advanced technological attributes:

  • Naturally insulating qualities that allow your body to regulate its temperature
  • Retains body heat in cold climates and allows breathability in warmer climates.
  • Alpaca fiber does not contain lanolin and therefore is hypoallergenic and does not itch

 

Sourced from small-scale ranchers in the Peruvian Andes and woven by family-owned artisan mills, our expertly tailored collection of luxury alpaca designer wear is made in limited quantities to ensure the highest production standard and eliminate excess waste.
