Mr Porter and Brunello Cucinelli have introduced “Unexpected Elegance” an exclusive 41-piece capsule collection that includes ready-to-wear, footwear, and accessories, designed to offer the perfect transitional wardrobe and created using exceptional crafting techniques and superior fabrications that offer ultimate comfort and style.

The collection spans a selection of ready-to-wear pieces, including premium signature knitwear, tailored trousers, and jeans, as well as transitional down vests, long and short-sleeved cotton jerseys, accessories, and shoes. The collection comes in a palette of slate grey, camel tan, snow white, eggshell blue, and dark navy. Retail prices range from $420-$4995.

Standout items include a baby alpaca beaver peacoat, an ultra-light nylon down vest with an extractable hood, a carded cashmere raglan sleeve rollneck, and corduroy 500-line pleated pants. Four footwear options are available, including a low-top leather sneaker in grained calfskin and suede. Accessories include leather weekend bags and cashmere beanies.

Along with the “Unexpected Elegance” exclusive capsule, Brunello Cucinelli SS23 mainline collection will launch on Mr Porter in November, which continues to draw upon the brand’s rich Italian heritage and expertise. Outerwear is iterated in quality materials: cashmere bombers, flannel gilets, and double-breasted shearling coats. The brand’s coveted knitwear is also offered in padded cable knits, snowflake Fair Isle rollnecks, and cashmere polo shirts.
