East meets West guided Brunello Cucinelli, who offered an interesting new take on his ultraluxurious sportswear by infusing it with an athletic vibe and fresh plays on high-tech details.

Silicon strips, for example, were bonded to the inside of a cashmere sweater so that its surface had a chic embossed-like texture; the pattern was also worked on a supple leather vest, which here actually was embossed.

While the overall shapes were boxier and baggier than past seasons via stiff kimono-style jackets and relaxed-fit pants, Cucinelli also demonstrated some sharp tailoring with a mannish jacket featuring nickel lapel detailing. He paired it with a saffron-hued sweater and plaid pants, an unusual move for the designer, who typically prefers a solid palette of neutrals.
