Milan, January 2017. 

Just like a modern alchemist's laboratory, the Brunello Cucinelli 2017 Autumn-Winter Collection contains a unique mix of carefully selected ingredients. From casual to sartorial, from neutral to colour, refined correspondences between fabrics and fine materials feature alongside artisan craftsmanship, bringing to life a unique, distinctive Blend.

Casual Sartorial

The fundamental relationship which forges taste is a careful mix of Casual Sartorial, 
based on a modern sensitivity that defines the balance and relationship between shapes, colours and materials. Comfort and elegance are seamlessly combined to create a new "Smooth" fit, characterised by slightly softer and more relaxed lines. A modern silhouette which influences outerwear, down jackets and above all, trousers, where new volumes are particularly relevant, both matched with classical pleat details as well as with large pockets and sporty forms.

The jacket is the main element, which moulds sartorial elegance at the service of masculine physique, through a tight-fitting bust and slightly more prominent shoulders. All combinations gravitate around the jacket: knitwear colours, extremely soft fabrics in precious fibres and new volumes are fundamental parameters for a Blend of classical elegance and modern style, where contrasts between different inspirations create harmonious and refined relations. Accessories add a precious final touch, honing taste with English-style inspired footwear, enveloping scarves and refined leather bags.

 Colours and Knits

Knits feature the maximum expression of colour: Orange, Red and Yellow, energetic yet never overwhelming, always carefully calibrated through plays on tones. In every look, warm sweaters introduce patterns, different stitches, bi-colour shoulders, stripes, argyles and contrast details. Knits are also influenced by the new Smooth Fit, which offers straighter lines, less close to the body and with slightly dropped shoulders.

For the eye, the Blend offers a balance of colours and nuances which makes each garment unique and enhances all combinations. The focus is based on natural hues and intense tonalities, fundamental shades of greys, browns, burnt colours and blues which are accentuated by the season's new colours. 

To the touch, every single element exudes a passion for details, yarns and fabrics in the collection. 
Noble cashmere fibres, refined wool fabrics and extremely soft baby alpaca confer sensations of warmth, protection and comfort. Lightweight fabrics offer a soft and rich effect. Refined denim, imported from the finest Japanese tradition, adds a modern cut to the sartorial elegance of jackets. 

A fruitful dialogue triumphs in outerwear between sporty elements and formal references through different materials: flannels and nylon are membraned to perfect technical properties, whereas new sensations of softness abound in fleeces and cloths, both in single-colour and patterned versions. Fine leathers and lightweight shearling complete the winter layering.
