Fall TrendsStylish Thieves Steal Brunello Cucinelli's Entire Fall Lineup
Listen, Italian luxury don't come cheap.
WWD reports that on Saturday, the Italian brand's entire selection of men's clothing was pilfered from its Milan showroom. (When police arrived on the scene Sunday morning, they found the women's collection had been left behind.) The stolen goods were samples the brand used to show buyers, and if there's a saving grace here, it's that buying for the fall season wrapped up long before this particularly egregious five-finger discount was applied.
GQ would never endorse criminal activity (especially not against a beloved fashion label like Mr. Cucinelli's) but we're not going to pretend we can't relate. Cucinelli's goods are luxurious with a capital L, and the fall goods—which include fur-lined outerwear, perfectly pleated trousers, and the best cashmere sweaters money can buy—won't come cheap. Cucinelli himself nodded to this in his inspiration for the collection. The designer told our friends at Vogue, "It's about father and son sharing the same wardrobe. The father will look younger, and the son will save on his budget!"
And assuming the guys who stole it aren't caught, they just saved a lot of money on some really strong looks for fall.
