As a fashionable man, I'd wear Brunello Cucinelli 24/7 if I could... and if I were a woman, I'd wear Brunello Cucinelli 24/7! This is such an exquisite collection of luxury meets casual. Per VogueRunway: The design team worked the collection around the concept of exploration; it is intended to represent a positive outlook and an open mind toward diversity. “Inclusive combinations—respectful of different ages, races, [and] cultures—that is what it’s all about,” explained Cucinelli. Masculine references were lightened and graced with a feminine, sensual flair; military elements were softened by lace, embroidery, feathers, or vintage trimmings. Knitwear in precious alpaca, cashmere, and mohair was given a fluffy texture, as if it were a protective vellum. To enhance the inclusivity factor, shapes and volumes had gently oversize and comfortable proportions, appealing to a variety of body types without detracting from a stylish, cool attitude. Sporty inspiration was tempered by urban, utilitarian touches, as in a shearling biker jacket with a textured, antique gold metallic shine.

“A well-tailored jacket is style-defining and can change your attitude in a minute” - Brunello Cucinelli.
Jackets, trenchcoats and outerwear set this collection in motion. Brunello Cucinelli Fall 2016 is completely wearable, but that's not surprising. Cucinelli is always classic, yet modern, making his collections timeless. The tailoring is always impeccable and what excites me most is in the way the looks are styled. So much layering. Suits worn with cardigans, puffer vests over jackets, sweaters wrapped around the waist with cashmere jogger pants - it all works. And it all makes a statement for superior sartorial elegance. Casual with a sophisticated flair.
It's one of the most beautiful properties in the city with its impeccable landscaping, fine dining and upscale shopping. And now, as they embrace the holidays with twinkle lights and festive showroom windows, The Shops Buckhead Atlanta is beyond stunning - holiday spirit perfection!
Last week, The Shops Buckhead Atlanta hosted a blogger mixer and shopping tour that was absolutely fabulous. We were greeted with champagne and chocolates by Planet Blue, Scoop NYC, Alice + Olivia, Brunello Cucinelli, La Perla, Christian Louboutin, Bella Bag, Jonathan Adler and Les Copains. As we strolled through [and shopped a little, of course] it was wonderfully clear that the holiday season was among us. Beautiful clothing and accessories, friendly associates and a sale or two, made for a perfect evening.
When the shopping adventure came to an end, the party didn't stop. [Everyone] made their way to Gypsy Kitchen for a cocktail reception, tapas and mingling.
Thank you, The Shops Buckhead Atlanta, for hosting such a delightful evening. The take-away: You too can experience this... valet, shop and dine. And for the most visual bang, do it at dusk.
If I could only use one word to describe the Brunello Cucinelli 2016 menswear collection, that word would be "perfection." Cucinelli takes a casual, sporty and chic approach to this collection. The looks are styled to perfection, just like the fit. What I am most obsessed with are the pants. All trousers, draw string pants and denim have a specific cut for a specific fit. They offer one pleat, making them slightly roomier at the thigh but continue to taper down the leg. Most are cuffed and ride on the ankle. It's the details that matter.
When the hottest shopping district in Atlanta puts out a must-have list, people listen. (Well, at least this blogger does.) Buckhead Atlanta shared their "Trends We Love" in the form of leather. From sassy to sexy but always stylish, here are their fabulous leather nods:
1. ETRO: Paisley Fringe Bucket Bag
2. THEORY: The knee-length Zeyn L lends buoyancy and movement to the slip-on skirt with its uniquely pleated leather accents and a comfortable elastic waistband for secure fitting.
3. ETRO- Tan fringed boots
4. BRUNELLO CUCINELLI: Leather Jacket with Ostrich Feathers
5. BRUNELLO CUCINELLI: Men's Leather Biker Jacket
6. CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN: “ Corafront” | Red and black Patent pump
7. CHRISTINA LOUBOUTIN: “Sweety Charity” | Red and black Nappa/Patent bag
8. THEORY: Add an unexpected pop of to your closet with the ultra-chic, Joean QL leather Jacket. An asymmetrical, concealed snap placket closes the unique, all-season must-have.
9. BRUNELLO CUCINELLI: Leather Clutch with Monili Fringe
Rich, luxurious and edgy, we love leather! Thanks Buckhead Atlanta.... time to shop.
