Founded in 1978, the Italian luxury house of Brunello Cucinelli quickly rose to fashion stardom for its unparalleled fabrics and exquisite crafstmanship. The brand is best known for its silky Mongolian knits and other timeless wardrobe staples that seamlessly blend classic designs with minimalistic inspirations.
For its fall/winter 2023 collection, the brand looked to the tranquility and softness of classical music as a representation for the fluidity in its garments. Arranged similar to an elaborate ochestra symphony of rhythmic densities, rich melodies and interludes, there was a distinctive blend of sharp silhouettes, muted shades and textiles of the highest quality. Knee-length coats, short spencer jackets and puffy bombers all inject a sense of modernity into an otherwise classic selection of outerwear.
Steering clear from overly-feminine evening wear in the spirit of ball gowns or frocks, in place is a selection of delicate sweaters, cardigans and vest in cashmere, wool, silk, linen and cotton. As for bottoms, pleated midi skirts and relaxed wool trousers continued to drive home the minimalistic simplicity that we have come to love from the brand. There were new straight volumes and slouchy fits of the traditional five-pocket model, in velvety délavé corduroy featuring utility details that complement a variety of styles and silhouettes. On the accessories front, college-style penny loafers and trapezoidal-shaped heel offer plenty of versatility.
With the trend of quiet luxury more popular than ever, tons of brands are competing for the top spot on the fashion pyramid. Boasting long-standing house codes of using the finest natural materials and unfailing ability to produce elegant clothes that will last a lifetime, Brunello Cucinelli continues to cement itself as the gold standard.
The brand has also been sighted on some of the world’s most influential and powerful female figures, from the likes of American host and producer Oprah Winfrey to Hollywood legend and starlet Angelina Jolie. Brunello Cucinelli has redefined power dressing in the modern day, and its penchant for challenging the status quo whilst maintaining its design integrity has brought forth a new way of expressing feminity—one that can be modest yet effective in its approach.
