    the INTERLUDE

    HARRY MAGAZINE FW18 - THE CHANGING DEFINITION OF LUXURY

    The definition of luxury has changed over the years. Once it meant ostentation and self-indulgence; today, the meaning is more complicated. Luxury is having the time to escape life’s routine obligations. It’s less about the accumulation of things and more about collecting new experiences. It is understanding that the value of something precious is not its price so much as the quality of its workmanship and its enduring beauty.

    BRUNELLO CUCINELLI

     

    How do you turn a blue flannel chalk-stripe three piece suit into an outfit that looks almost casual? A western-style sport shirt is step one; step two is a pair of suede boots with removable ankle straps.

    BRUNELLO CUCINELLI

     

    It’s very lightly padded, and the microfibre moleskin fabric has a finish that feels like the skin of a peach. Burgundy enriches many aspects of Cucinelli’s collection this season, contrasting beautifully with the grey and brown of the sports jacket and the winter white of the micro-corduroy trousers.

    Made in a rich charcoal fabric with a pale grey chalk stripe, this new arrival is unmistakably his: those broad peaked lapels, those firmly defined shoulders. No belt is needed; the pants have side adjusters and a fabric waistband.

    The light, fluid fabric is pure cashmere in a midnight blue bird’s eye pattern. The lining is trimmed nutria fur, as soft and warm as beaver. No other lining, no quilting – none needed. Just understated ultimate luxury.

    Soft shoulders and patch pockets give the suit a slightly casual air, especially when it’s worn with a turtleneck. Slim-cut and tapered, the pants also look great when worn on their own.

    LORO PIANA

     

    Pure cashmere woven as a grey Donegal tweed flecked with barely perceptible blue and burgundy. The lining is a tad more flamboyant, featuring Loro Piana’s famous check. A burgundy cashmere scarf completes the look.
