Brunello Cucinelli has mastered the meeting of classic and modern silhouettes while simultaneously proving that neutral colors don’t have to be bland. For their FW18 Menswear collection, the brand emphasizes layers, featuring thick knits topped by sleek blazers, all framed by quintessentially-shaped outerwear. The collection gives focus to the lightness of each garment, making excessive layering, well, practical.

Reminiscent of last year’s Fall 2018 presentation, the collection includes patterned knits topped with fur lined biker jackets and statement vests. This collection, however, gives more focus on lengthy peacoats and a more constructed silhouette, ditching last season’s slimmer shapes. The brand chose to emphasize on texture and surface character, utilizing natural materials like shearlings and nappa leathers, and taking advantage of subtle oranges and violets overlapping neutral beiges and gloomy blues. Velvets, clean lines, and pinstripes also take center stage in the collection, creating a playful element to an otherwise serious but sleek collection. Brunello proves that clothes for even the most professional of workplaces can have a little fun every now and then.
