Luxury fashion buyers are forsaking flash for quiet luxury. I call this trend “the wink cause we know the cost of a piece.” Brunello Cucinelli continues to reap the benefits of the consumer shift to luxurious quality. According to business site Bloomberg, the Corciano, Italy based fashion house upgraded its sales forecasts after outpacing Gucci and other pricey labels.
Cucinelli has been about rich fabrics over classic design reinvention, a traditional approach relying more on style endurance than fashion for the moment. The brand appeals to wearers who are there, not trying to fake it.
