Brunello Cucinelli Fall 2019 - Runway Review
February 20, 2019
The ease -- and elegance -- of knitting was on full display at Brunello Cucinelli's fall presentation. Ever the effortlessly luxurious execution, the collection was rooted in a more rustic-meets-urban aesthetic, filled with beautifully executed nods to craftsmanship. To wit, a cashmere bomber boasted of a fluffy, textured fur (knitted, natch) while a maxi coat was constructed from compacted cashmere to resemble shearling.
For all its hidden charms and crafts, the collection was, first and foremost, pure luxury. The leather cut for a midi skirt was butter soft; the cargo pants silky to the touch and signature jumpsuits none-too-gauche with their sequined tulle accents. An ultra-soft cashmere coat was a showstopper -- worn over a chunky turtleneck sweater tucked into white pants with a modern asymmetrical closure at the waist.
