If you’re starting to think special gift for a special girl, especially one who likes to dance around the living room to the Nutcracker the second the weather gets nippy (I am familiar with this phenomenon, intimately) then our good friends at Ivory Row have introduced just the thing. The luxury cashmere brand has been so successful, that their customers have asked for something for their own kids. Thus, the cashmere shrug for girls was born.

This wrap sweater is perfect for layering in the fall. It's part of a limited-edition collaboration between Ivory Row and Mary Helen Bowers, founder of Ballet Beautiful and a former New York City Ballet dancer (who trained Natalie Portman forBlack Swan!).

Ballet Beautiful founder Mary Helen Bowers has trained everyone from Natalie Portman (for Black Swan) to Lily Aldridge and Miranda Kerr for Victoria’s Secret fashion shows. But her latest client? Your closet.
The ballerina trainer just released two fitness fashion collaborations: her leather ballet street flats on Tinker Tailor ($280) and a beautiful collection of cashmere wrap sweaters with Ivory Row ($125–$175).
“Ballet has always captured the imagination of a lot of people in the fashion world,” Bowers says. “The clothes in ballet are elegant and designed to make your body look good.”
The sweater collection with Ivory Row, which launched this month, is a luxury item meant to be worn to ballet workouts and on the street, Bowers says.
"At the end of the day, don’t we all want to look like a ballet dancer? Mary Helen Bowers is betting on it—the former NYCB ballerina’s Ballet Beautiful exercise program has been proven by Natalie Portman (who won an Academy Award for her portrayal of a prima ballerina in Black Swan), Victoria’s Secret Angels, and starlets alike—and she’s begun to branch into fashion with Ivory Row’s beautiful cropped ballet-inspired cropped cashmere cardigans in shades of pale toe-shoe pink, white, and black. They’re just the thing to wrap up in as the season begins to turn, whether you’re covering up post–rond de jambe or attempting to channel Les Ballets Russes on your way to brunch. And even better? They come in sizes for both you and your own little ballerina (aged 2–6 years old), should you be shopping for one."
