    Brunello Cucinelli

    Style — 12 January 2016

    Brunello Cucinelli:
    Work Wonders

    Designer Brunello Cucinelli first had the idea to dye cashmere in 1978, and although at the time he was told it was a crazy thing to do to such a delicate fibre, subtly coloured cashmere and other natural fabrics continue to define his collections today.

    He makes annual visits to Mongolia and China to select the best-quality goat hair for his workshops in Solomeo, Italy, where master craftsmen transform it into garments. His latest womenswear collection features softly structured knits and tailored jackets – winter workwear that is warm yet smart, and transitions effortlessly into elegant evening attire.
