Brunello Cucinelli took the concept of comfort as the ultimate luxury literally for fall, unfurling lavish fabrics galore. Titled Wild Luxury, the collection featured a main look of loose, athletic-tinged base layers, such as cashmere track pants and generously cut silk duchesse overalls, piled with wrapped silk tops, rich cashmere knits and tons of sporty, yet slightly feral furs. The latter included a black-and-white fox vest and a knit marmot sweatshirt.
There were shearling vests bearing copious cashmere goat hair, and a nifty cashmere-knit bomber that had been tumbled and treated to have a nubby texture that was almost softer than fur. All this plush stuff — oozing with soothing extravagance in Cucinelli’s signature neutral colors — seemed targeted at women who have mastered the art of living well.
