Have you ever met a King in your life? I did, in Milan, last January.
I met with Brunello Cucinelli, the King of Cashmere.
Rumours say that kindness is the key to his success. Can this be true?
Is there any kindness in the fashion industry...or is it a world of snobbish people?
Maybe...but Brunello is not part of it...not in the matter of being human.
Well, let me tell you that even if we come from the same town it was the first time
we met, but it felt like we were old friends.
The day I met him I was late to the appointment due to the Italians rail wails.
Brunello was about to travel by car, and was worried about the fog that hits the
Milan area hard, patiently waited for me.
What an experience to meet this humble self made man.I took his picture and after
he asked me: “Your train was late, did you eat anything?” I said no...and at
the same time he took me to the kitchen and ordered a hot meal just for me.
I remember these 2 guys taking care of me and cooking just for me. Then he came
into the kitchen greeted me and said to the cooks...”guys...thanks for the good pasta”.
What a kind man and soft too, as his last collection. The show room, was like
the modern museum of London to my eyes, jackets, coats, cardigans,
so soft that you can not imagine the harmony, pastel colours and all great
stuff that makes my day.
Do not forget to take a look at brunellocucinelli.it and be soft...a must in your closet.
