Claudia Schiffer can add creative director to her CV. The former model’s eponymous cashmere collection launches for Autumn Winter 2011 in collaboration with German cashmere label, Iris von Arnim. The luxe cashmere pieces range from chunky cardigans to slim fitting dresses and will be available exclusively via Net-A-Porter and Harvey Nichols this week.

The earthy toned collection with hints of midnight blue and charcoal make up around 30 pieces. The e-commerce site is set to launch on 12 August but until then, you can watch this video directed by Danny Vaia, featuring none other than Claudia Schiffer.

The pieces range from £250 – £1000. See the collection on www.claudiaschiffer.com.
