Active Cashmere – the brand known for its water-repellent, machine washable cashmere – has unveiled its fall/winter 2021 collection, featuring a collaborative capsule created exclusively for Neiman Marcus.

The brand’s core collection of men’s and women’s ready-to-wear and accessories continues to expand this year with the addition of a limited-edition release of its men’s tracksuit set for Neiman Marcus, which features an exclusive jogger and zip hoodie set available in navy/light blue, black/camel, and gray/dark red.

“We have a longstanding heritage in the cashmere business through our father and his legacy in the industry,” said Roy Hakimian, CEO of Active Cashmere. “Our goal in re-inventing cashmere now comes both from our respect and passion for the industry, as well as our desire to make a truly positive impact on the industry for the future generations. Our top priority is to maintain the highest regard for the quality of our product, while being transparent about all our production processes. Ultimately, we want to deliver a product that is unique, functional, and timeless at once. “

“Our latest partnership with Neiman Marcus is a true creative collaboration, with both parties involved having the utmost respect for the product,” added Hakimian. “We are super excited to expand our core range with styles that serve as both great leisure items and transitional pieces. Comfort is a key component of the Active Cashmere brand, and we are excited to add a new level of style and sophistication by launching these new capsule pieces.”
