Brunello cucinelli and bergdorf goodman celebrate 20-year partnership

by Stephen Garner

Bergdorf Goodman celebrated its 20-year partnership with Brunello Cucinelli on Thursday evening at its Fifth Avenue store in New York City.

The evening commenced with Mr. Cucinelli signing his new book, “The Dream of Solomeo, My Life and the Idea of Humanistic Capitalism”, and continued with a cocktail event on the store’s 6th floor, where the women’s shop is located. An intimate dinner at the BG Restaurant concluded the evening.

Twenty years ago, when the designer, today known as the cashmere king, was just starting to enter the U.S. market, it was Bergdorf Goodman who was the first to open its doors to the brand, forever affirming its position in the global luxury landscape. From there, the two have forged a successful, symbiotic partnership built on transparency, mutual respect and trust.

Over the past two decades, Brunello Cucinelli has evolved from a magnificent cashmere collection into a luxury lifestyle brand, now prominently displayed in Bergdorf Goodman’s men’s and women’s locations. Both shops were creative collaborations between Cucinelli and Bergdorf Goodman’s Linda Fargo and Bruce Pask, who have contributed their distinctive vision and have brought to life an atmosphere and space exclusive to Bergdorf Goodman and in line with the codes of Brunello Cucinelli’s warm and refined aesthetic.

For the occasion of the 20th anniversary of their partnership, the designer has created a capsule of 20 evening pieces, which will be sold exclusively in North America at Bergdorf Goodman women’s store and online. The capsule collection consists of separates in luxurious knits as well as suiting and dresses in satins and tulles, embodying the effortless timeless elegance which is so unique to the brand and to Bergdorf Goodman’s exclusive clientele.
