Brunello Cucinelli: Ready-to-wear AW21

Italian superpower Brunello Cucinelli, despite these hellish twelve months, remains a key player in the Milanese fashion world. Informal and relaxed looks were unveiled this afternoon at the leading luxury brand’s AW21 show. Once again delving into the brand’s deep-rooted heritage, Cucinelli’s time-honed designs are a contemporary interpretation of its integral sartorial prestige.

This season, skillfully crafted and high-quality cashmere, silk, wool, mohair and alpaca embody the intrinsic value of ‘doing good and being better”. Malfilé, tweed and checks in elemental shades are a breath of fresh air lending to a timely escape from the inner-city to nature’s serenity. Called, The Touch of Knit, the collection features precious now-and-forever garments with practicality, sustainability, and quality at the fore. A study on understated elegance, modern minimalism, and new notions of nature: fluid and lightweight down jackets, voluminous tailored trousers, and jersey blazers enrich the presentation from beginning to end.

A brand known for its sandy palette, this season concentrates on gentle beiges, golden browns and enveloping warm winter whites, creating an overarching sensation of harmony in each look. With just a passing glance, it’s easy to see the core relationships that define the collection: function, pace, and balance and pleasure.
