Listen Up: A Convo with the Cashmere Queen Behind Lingua Franca

Listen Up BY kiara mills 11/13/2017

Um, have you seen our Professional Enthusiast Round 5 Cashmere Sweater?! We’re obsessed with it—and the woman we partnered with to bring it to life, Rachelle Hruska MacPherson of Lingua Franca. Hear her story, and then nab that oh-so-major embroidered knit for 10% off with the code AFEWTHINGS. All proceeds support Her Justice, a very cool NYC foundation that provides free legal counsel to women in need. Gah, so much to be excited about here.



Special and amazing guest Rachelle Hruska MacPherson, co-founder of Guest of a Guest and the woman behind Lingua Franca, on making more meaningful sweaters, one stitch at a time…

  • Lingua Franca also makes travel sets, if you’re feeling very first-class-y.
  • Check out Rachelle’s friends at Naadam, who helped source her dreamy soft cashmere.
