ELLE Canada caught up with Brunello Cuccinelli during Milan Fashion Week to talk fall inspirations, the Cuccinelli woman, and his favourite pieces from the Fall collection. Brunello Cuccinelli is carried by Holt Renfrew in Canada.
What is the inspiration behind this collection? This season I was very inspired by this idea of androgyny, combining masculine details and shapes with feminine fabrics and silhouettes, or vice versa. The collection has a lot of three-dimensional effects, to create the effect of volume and sculpture. I am very much interested in the idea of making garments with fluid, light lines and shapes that are incredibly wearable, but that are made with a skilled hand, using the techniques of haute couture.
