One of the world’s most luxurious knitwear brands, Brunello Cucinelli has raised the bar even higher with a new collection of down-lined cashmere sweaters. Hand-knit at Cucinelli’s Solomeo headquarters in the hills of Umbria, Italy, they are the works of a design team that continues to experiment, often with brilliant results. The lightweight down lining makes the sweaters as warm as a jacket. This hooded version with down lining is $4,060. (714.957.6930, www.brunellocucinelli.com)
