Sharp evening style from Brunello Cucinelli

New season offerings include a sleek matte-silk dinner jacket and an ultra-soft cotton/cashmere moleskin suit

Cotton/cashmere moleskin one-and-a-half-breasted suit, £3,100
Cotton/cashmere moleskin one-and-a-half-breasted suit, £3,100

Informal takes on the tuxedo are part of the Brunello Cucinelli canon, and this season new colours and fabrics deliver some splendid pieces. A matte‑silk dinner jacket (£3,520) with caramel unlined satin lapels makes for a sleek evening look, especially when paired with pale casual trousers – as I’ve seen Mr Cucinelli himself do at smart occasions. More breaking with convention comes via a soft Sea Island cotton-corduroy smoking suit (£3,700) in rust; the unexpected, durable fabric gives a rich, muted look. There’s also a tobacco cotton/cashmere moleskin one-and-a-half-breasted suit (£3,100) that’s been given an enzyme treatment to make it ultra-soft to the touch.
