This season, Brunello Cuccinelli says he was inspired by androgyny—hence the ladies-who-lunch (with-the-boys!) vibe.

My first appointment of the day was the Brunello Cucinelli presentation, in an absolutely beautiful showroom on Viale Montello. As models milled around in charcoal cashmere, quilted leathers and slouchy trousers, editors chatted softly and sipped champagne (I stuck to espresso, because it was a little early to be breaking out the Veuve). But I couldn’t resist some of the incredible appetizers on display—cheese and croissants? Count me in! (And yes—that is a prosciutto carving station. Only in Milan, friends). The gorgeous Brunello Cucinelli showroom.
