Brunello Cucinelli’s latest collection covers all of the California coastal dressing must-haves.

Equal parts elegant and cool, Brunello Cucinelli’s new collection is a must-have for California coastal dressing. Inspired by the beach resorts of Années Folles (France’s version of the Roaring ’20s), neutral tones of ivory and sand are married with charcoal and black (a first for the brand’s runway collection). Look closely to discover telling Brunello details like the silver Monili chain, which elevates a nautical stripe, and “teddy bear” cotton—a new technique in knitwear that frays the edges of the threads for a more relaxed, fluffy appearance.
