Brunello Cucinelli Fall 2016 Men’s Shoe Collection

If the men’s market is heading toward eye-popping experimentation, Brunello Cucinelli isn’t interested in following it. The Italian designer showed a conservative-leaning men’s shoe collection for fall ’16, focused on classic silhouettes in various shades of brown.

Of course, the Cucinelli customer isn’t sharing a wardrobe with pieces from Jeremy Scott or Rick Owens. He’s looking for staples he can wear every day. Still, there were attempts at tiny flourishes in the collection. A laceless mid-calf boot in a rich suede-and-leather combo was surprisingly modern. Suede low-tops with striped paneling were an attempt at grabbing a younger clientele.

Dressy boots, laceups and monks stayed true to the brand’s identity. The emphasis was on combos this season — felts paired with suede, or pebbled leathers against smooth. A burnished leather combat boot will last a lifetime and get better with age.

Though many heritage luxury labels are amping up their fashion offerings — think Salvatore Ferragamo, Gucci or Berluti — Cucinelli has yet to find his new stride with the men’s assortment. His fall ’16 women’s collection showed signs of excitement, though, via slip-on sneakers with kiltie and fur accents.
