Brunello Cucinelli is one of the best designers out there. Boasting literally the best, softest, most comfortable fabrics in the market and intricate detailed designs more flattering to the body than any rival company, the brand is nothing but pure Italian luxury.
And when looking for outerwear, you have an array of options: pea coats, toggle coats, top coats. But sometimes you need something casual and versatile. And yet, if you could have the absolute best, who would want a North Face with a big logo on it and lacking any ability to be even slightly dressed up?
Cucinelli has the solution with this gorgeous quilted piece. The quilting adds fashionability and elegance and the silver tipped drawstrings only add to that look. The big pockets at the hips make this sporty, and the dark saturated color allows this piece to be worn with dressy pants or jeans. The kicker, however, is the box pleat in the back to render it highly Europe-friendly with a double-vent sort of look. So smart and so flattering. This is the kind of thing you wear on a ski trip in Aspen, Lake Tahoe, or the French Alps. Pair it with a scarf and you’re made. $2575 at Bergdorf.
