Stepping off of the hectic streets of New York City and into the serene Brunello Cucinelli show room, you almost forget you’re there to do a job. Amidst a sea of natural tones and varying hues of white we knew what a perfect collection this was going to be for our customers. Light, fresh, and feminine the Brunello Cucinelli Spring 2012 collection is based on “essential luxury” – clean silhouettes, fluid and uncomplicated looks. We couldn't wait to sort through the more than 900 pieces to create our own chic and elegant collection for the store. Here is a sneak peak at three of our favorite looks.
Combinations of raffia, silk, linen and of course, cashmere made for a diverse palette of textures. The silhouettes were strikingly relaxed and will definitely make for a very chic spring. The whole look of the season is based on taking things to the limits and utilizing the "maxi" length for cardigans and dresses. The many subtle details like sparkling pailettes and lush silk linings were true to the Cucinelli aesthetic of technique commingled with beauty and comfort.
The shoes at Brunello Cucinelli are always stylishly understated and we are so excited about the classic and simple feel of this seasons footwear. We love the new take on the classic loafer and the full platform is back with a comfortable height for all day wear.
And finally we chose a heel with the glimmering, and very Brunello Cucinelli, monili trim. It is slightly more dramatic and glitzy but could be done for day as well.
As we all know, no Cucinelli look is complete without layering! The showroom is always filled with the most luxurious shawls and beautifully organic and no fuss jewelry to layer and accent the seasons looks.
There was so much to look at and contemplate but we have carefully made selections to compliment each piece, whether it’s a dress, a blouse, or knitwear. We love the day to night wearability of Brunello Cucinelli clothing, shoes, and accessories. Each look truly translates well to any lifestyle and fits in to any wardrobe.
