In a perfect world, Paychi Karen Guh would wear cashmere every day. She’s almost there, sporting the lightweight, versatile goat-hair fiber almost year-round. After 14 years as a designer at Nordstrom, the Taiwanese-born entrepreneur launched her Paychi Guh line of cashmere T-shirts and sweaters in 2013, now sold in boutiques around the world. “My philosophy for the brand is everyday indulgence,” Guh says. “People put it on and know they’re treating themselves.”
