I can never resist a beautiful shop, or workshop for that matter. Yesterday I was reading about Simone’s, of Simone LeBlanc, recent experience in a Brunello Cucinelli shop just after I had browsed through this post I did about a store of the brand a while ago. The next thing I did was to visit their beautiful website and get lost in the story of the Italian brand launched in 1985 by Brunello Cucinelli in the medieval village of Solomeo steeped in the history of the Umbrian countryside.
The offices and workshops are set up in a medieval fortress with wooden beams, stone fireplaces, frescoed walls and brick floors, so there is no wonder why their stores feel so inviting and warm, a window to the strong values of the house. It was impossible not to fall in love with the impeccably tailored clothes from the finest leather, cotton, linen and cashmere, chic hats and artisan crafted bags (isn’t the knitted mini-purse adorable?) and to wish I could make just one mine. You should visit the online boutique to admire in detail their collections, as these product images (I had no better alternative but to screen-shoot them) don’t do justice to their unique beauty.
I wish you a wonderful weekend!
