Christmas isn’t a season. It’s a feeling. Edna Ferber
The Goldenes Quartier’s advent calendar: new gift ideas every day. Today: Brunello Cucinelli.
Presents from Brunello Cucinelli are always accompanied by the thoughts of the label’s philanthropically and philosophically inclined founder. “Money”, he tells us on his homepage, “has real value only when it is spent to improve the life and growth of people.” Which is also true of the couture house’s products. The preferred material at the Solomeo-based company is cashmere, worked in a wide variety of ways. From knitwear to fleece and fur, it is not just the material itself but also the welcoming winter colours that are an invitation to curl up and feel as snug as a bug in a rug: white, beige, light grey. They come with complementary accessories: such as beige gloves and the shoehorn made from premium horn. And a cashmere scatter cushion complete with a soft blanket for your post-Christmas dinner nap. Perfectly formed and functional: the wooden case with its two compartments serves as a desktop pencil case, and the scented candles in ceramic pots for the mantelpiece. Travel in exquisite style with the brown leather trolley case and white leather bum bag. And the golden green metallic shimmering hide bracelet will add pizazz to any outfit, whether elegant eveningwear for dinner or casual chic on a plan.
