Brunello Cucinelli’s Opera collection spins a good yarn

The luxury Italian label’s chunky jumpers and cardigans have us nurturing the knitting needles

Chunky, patterned alpine knits have a tendency to conjure up images of 1980s ski trips, sipping eggnog, or kitsch art teacher attire. But that Italian master of fabrication Brunello Cucinelli has tapped into A/W 2019’s penchant for artisanal details, and instead given a luxe, handcrafted lift to this winter fireside essential.

We can’t wait to snuggle up in jumpers and cardigans from the Umbria-based fashion house’s Opera collection, which are woven by hand using fine natural yarns, such as cashmere, combined with silk, alpaca, mohair or sparkling Lurex, in a minimal colour palette. Featuring patterns inspired by ancient Nordic intarsia knitting styles, we’re longing for the days to get even chillier. §
