A Smash Landing

Brunello Cucinelli

Forget upgrades and complimentary champagne. Style-savvy frequent flyers wouldn’t dream of hitting cruising altitudes swathed in anything but cashmere bearing the Brunello Cucinelli label. And with the arrival of a new 2,100-square-foot boutique in Highland Park Village, we anticipate that this venerable Italian brand will truly take off. Store manager Jamie Swartz presides over its hushed interior, the perfect environment in which to view the men’s, women’s and lifestyle offerings. Fall’s donne collection proves no one does the borrowed-from-the-boys look better: scuba-style tuxedo jackets, darted trousers, jersey pea coats, and embellished combat boots share the spotlight with traditionally feminine flowing tunics and wraparound maxi-skirts. For the gents, look for a wide assortment of short, slim-fit single-breasted coats in cashmere beaver or double wool, trousers in three fits (super slim, slim and basic), shaker knits and cap-toed oxfords. Neutral-hued decorative pillows, boxes, stash boxes and candles bring this look of low-key luxury home. 46 Highland Park Village, 214.520.9500; brunellocucinelli.com.
