Every look in the Brunello Cucinelli Fall Winter 2023 Collection is characterized by a key garment. As the focal point, it expresses the overall style and, at the same time, is defined by a harmony of combinations. A tailored cashmere coat, a special hand-knit sweater or a suit made of a precious fabric can constitute this focus of attention, which is then balanced in a contemporary way by overlays, trousers and accessories.
All the elements are organized based on a search for balance between references, proportions and style. A selection of the finest fabrics, characterized by special textures and micro-effects such as Donegal, chevron and broken twill weave, epitomizes the quest for a new value through classic materials.
Colours take on intense hues, inspired by historic wine blends, those that transcend trends. Shades of red – barbera, maroon and burgundy – are presented in a greyish version as though to convey the passing of time. The overall harmony is created by tones of beige moving from medium camel and sand to light panama and ecru. These are accompanied by fascinating shades of noble deep blue and modern light blue. Urban hues of grey complement the backdrop with the brand’s distinctive colours.
The suit confirms its role as a cornerstone of the collection: contemporary, comfortable, and versatile thanks to fabrics that allow wearers to convert the style of a jacket by matching it with different trousers. Outerwear pieces enhance their distinctive features depending on their intended purpose: elegant coats maximize their exclusive sartorial feel, while parkas and down jackets highlight their dynamic and contemporary flair.
Special garments featuring luxurious beaver fabrics or cosy cashmere and vicuña enrich bomber and aviator jackets lined in very soft shearling. The contemporary aesthetic of trousers is the element that best complements the balance of the looks. Loose fits, high-rise silhouettes and pleated details alternate and blend to create new volumes, offering endless styling options.
The winter knitwear collection has been broadened to offer more choices: from lightweight sweaters that match with the tailored lines of blazers to cardigans made of cozy yarns with an outdoor feel. Noble fibres of cashmere, virgin wool and silk are accompanied by the soft, shaded effect of alpaca. The fascination of traditional stitches is enhanced by new proportions, combinations and colours. New hand-knit creations of high quality complement the selections.
The selection of accessories includes skillfully handcrafted bags, hats, small leather goods and knits. Footwear selection includes a wide and organic selection of designs. New leathers refresh the style of classic derbies, while the design of loafers is updated with a wintery feel and materials. Hiking shoes and boots strike a balance between artisanal tradition and contemporary dynamism, both in sporty combinations and more elegant looks.
Elegant menswear dedicated to evening and gala events recreates the fusion of glamour and charisma iconic to 1950s and 60s Hollywood through a contemporary colour palette and modern style combinations. Tuxedo jackets diffuse red velvet’s enveloping charm or ennoble corduroy textures with tartan patterns in refined seasonal blues. Patent calfskin footwear and the range of accessories offer all the impeccable details needed to elevate men’s style for the evening.
