Italian fashion designer Brunello Cucinelli needs no introduction in Fairfield County. After all, men and women here have a taste for contemporary luxury with old-world refinement and appreciate a small selection of designers who exceed their expectations time and time again. Cucinelli is among the inner circle. Stylish shoppers loyally embrace each new season of his clothes and accessories. This peek at a few selections from the spring/summer 2016 collection makes a statement about the timeless appeal, worldly sophistication and endless variation of black-and-white outfits. There are also the soothing shades of the coast on an overcast day; stone, sand, grey skies. Comfortable and carefully constructed, the line reflects the atmosphere of northern beach resorts of Les Années Folles with an accent of the timeless Far East, bridging primitive and modern. This philosophical approach to fashion will always feel at home here. Find the designer’s fashions at Richards; https://richards.mitchellstores.com.
