Brunello Cucinelli wove a homage to nature. His love of his rural roots interwoven with high quality craftsmanship. This produced a comfortable-looking collection entitled “Rustic Charm & Pure Senses”. The clothes were filled with telluric forces in the colours of bark, wood, leather and the shades of the designer’s native Umbria. Raw linen, hemp, silk and cotton had the consistency of natural fibres. It was all about the instinct for spontaneity and the luxury of simplicity. Double-breasted trenches and blazers had a relaxed attitude in neutral white and ecru tints. Skirts slipped to the ankle with prints, transparencies and overlapping. Soft suede trousers were loose and wide-legged. Gilets and knits were unique pieces hand-knitted with strips of cotton, mohair and raffia. Cosy and soft with particular weaves and bright stripes, they glistened with light, glossy powder or micro sequins.
