Our favorite fashion item is a sweater so thin, you can wear it as a t-shirt. We layer them under strapless dresses. We pull them over tanks. We even fold them into long rectangles and sport them as scarves when we face a sudden wind. For this, we are eternally grateful to Vince, the clothing label that seems obsessed - even more than us - with the slim cashmere sweater. But someone else seems equally enamored, and it's Ellen Tien from The Times. First she name-checked them in 2004 as "ideal for layering." Five more mentions follow in the next four years. Eric Wilson also did a big piece on the label, about 13 months ago. And then yesterday, her Pulse section (which, confession, Faran has worked with) featured the online headline "A New Label Called Vince" - that's its graphic, by Tony Cenicola, at left. We had to smile, and to post something about it, although maybe metaphysically, the newness is true: If you keep buying fresh Vince pieces, perhaps even the label itself reincarnates - the same way your style can turn over tenfold with all your new layering tricks (thanks to those sweaters, of course).
