Designer Dispatch: Brunello Cucinelli

The Esteemed Italian Designer is Ready for a Change of Pace.

Brunello Cucinelli, the Italian maestro of ultra-luxe casual refinement is looking to make new strides. His purview is slowly moving from softly elegant weekend wear (sweater and knits) into the world of fine tailoring. Cashmere fibers are actually collected, by hand, from the cashmere goat’s fluffy undercoat and the very softest fibers are the stars of Brunello Cucinelli’s tailored suiting collection. It pairs featherweight cashmere fabrics with handmade details and modern, slim-fit tailoring that molds to the body as if it were made-to-order. Ultrasoft trousers. Sumptuous half-lined blazers. Beleating-edge fashion.

The Man Himself – Brunello Cucinelli

Saks: Are you involved in the day-to-day design and fabric choices for the tailored clothing?

Brunello Cucinelli: Yes, I feel especially connected to the men’s collection since I wear it every day. I can wear a white shirt and tie with my cargo pants and still feel appropriate for a meeting.

Are you wearing suits more often than you used to?

Brunello Cucinelli: I haven’t changed my habits at all. I love wearing ‘spezzato’ – which roughly means ‘casual elegance’ – during the day. For special events or parties, I definitely wear suits.

A Head-to-Toe Brunello Cucinelli Look

What’s your favorite suit accessory?

Brunello Cucinelli: I personally wear a white pocket square with navy trim for a meeting with investors, but a cotton chambray pocket square for dinner with friends.

What essentials should every man have in his closet?

Brunello Cucinelli: A navy or grey suit and a crisp white cotton shirt for the work week. I also think a navy travel blazer and a pair of cargo pants (in Panama-colored corduroy, my personal favorite) are important complements.

Elegant Every Day Staples

When you’re not in Solomeo, where do you like to travel?

Brunello Cucinelli: I enjoy our region of Umbria so much. Every village has so much character with their simple traditions and it is always a great source of inspiration for me. In the summer, my wife likes to visit friends near Corsica and in the winter we ski in Saint Moritz or Gstaad.

The Rockettes Look Every Bit as Excited as We Are for Next Monday’s Unveiling!

This year’s window theme depicts scenes from classic fairy tales creatively reinvented in an Art Deco style, with iconic New York locations providing the backdrop. Whether it’s Rapunzel using her hair to swing about the Empire State Building, Cinderella arriving at the Saks Fifth Avenue Ball, or Snow White being tempted by an evil apple merchant in the heart of Times Square, each window depicts a different New York fantasy.
