Brunello Cucinelli is the king of Italian cashmere. Since 1978, this master of fine craftsmanship has been creating luxury pieces that not only feel great but that you can feel good about wearing. Cucinelli is famous for creating luxury garments that have a conscience, and his business practices — from revitalizing the village of Solomeo, where his headquarters are based, to paying his employees well above the national average — have earned him enthusiastic accolades for enlightened entrepreneurship, including the Olivetti Foundation’s the 2009 Imprenditore Olivettiano prize. From his outerwear to his knit accessories to his world-renowned sweaters, these pieces are meticulously tailored and designed to weather shifts in climate and style by harmoniously fusing traditional silhouettes with contemporary detailing. In Cucinelli’s approach to both style and enterprise, the result is a conscientious elegance in a smartly modern context.
From 3.1 Philip Lim's avant-garde orange utility pants to the blazers and shirts of Y's Yohji Yamamoto, this massive final sale runs the gamut from cutting edge to classic, from formal to casual and from cashmere to cotton to wool.
You could start this sale without a thing to wear and end it dressed like an Italian prince. It’s got everything here you need: Soft cotton boxers and a poplin shirt by Cristiani. Over that, a suit in soft wool by Brunello Cucinelli, pants held up by a supple bullskin belt from Desanto Italia. In the pocket, a silk pocket square by Personality Milano. Now all you need is a Vespa with Anita Ekberg on the back and you're ready to go.
Work clothes make great leaps in both comfort and craftsmanship in this collection from Solomeo, Italy's prodigal son and soccer-loving cashmere wizard. These striped dress shirts in various colors work perfectly with Cucinelli’s flat-front pants and a select group of outerwear. (Don’t miss the pinstripe quilted vest or the camel overcoat with gray collar.)
Brunello Cucinelli’s menswear feels timeless precisely because it recalls eras of great elegance, when women weren’t the only peacocks of fashion. From a medieval village in Umbria where modernity meets the best of history, Cucinelli crafts slender, tailored pieces like a sleek, James Bond-esque two-button suit and a retro car coat evocative of something Jackie might have picked out for Jack—both of which feature prominently in our unmissable sale.
