Beyond Profit

October 29, 2012

Due to its respect of Italian history and culture, its strong philosophy of “supreme good,” and its dedication to quality, the Brunello Cucinelli brand is one of the world’s leaders of cashmere manufacturers. Therefore, it was such a pleasure having Hayley and Victor from Cucinelli in the store today. Taking the time to visit us at our new location, Victor and Hayley led a seminar for the A.K. Rikk’s staff, explaining all about the brand’s process, its products, its home, and its founder. What struck me most about Cucinelli was its focus on its employees and the supreme good: “giving business a meaning that goes beyond profit and reinvesting to improve the lives of workers, to enhance and restore the beauty of the world.”

It’s very interesting to watch two companies with similar philosophies work together.

In anticipation of this collection hitting our new stores shelves this coming August I wanted to give everyone a taste of what it means to be a Cucinelli woman. We have carried the men’s collection for a year and a half now, and have had so many women ask for it’s counterpart! Not only will we be carrying the collection but we will also focus on shoes, handbags, scarves and even jewelry from B.C……a store favorite!

When the Fall 2012 Milan show surfaces I will post!

This Thursday will be a very special day here at the store. It marks one year of carrying Cucinelli, and with that we are having our first trunk show with them. We will have beautiful cashmere sweaters, shirting composed of the finest cottons, and classic outerwear that any man could covet, all from the coming Fall 2012 line. Also Victor will be here to demonstrate why this brand and it’s philosophy is truly something to learn from.

Brunello Cucinelli

The A.K.RIKK’S team has taken a large portion of their time this past buying season to decide what our friends that shop with us might be lacking. At the top of our list was the lifestyle of Cucinelli. 

Nestled away in the quaint village of Solomeo in the Umbria region of central Italy, is a 14th century castle where men and women gather every morning with the sound of church bells to go to work. The small rolling sea of people file into the castle in grey uniforms resembles monks at morning prayer. They will spend their morning crafting the world’s greatest cashmere, meticulous at every step, from the initial weaving all the way to centimeter by centimeter of inspection, ensuring each piece is to the standard of perfection. 

Noon comes and again the church bells ring, not to signal the hour, but to call the entire company to lunch. Everyone has an assigned seat, mixing the executives with the textile workers, like a family, an Italian family.

We are so happy to be bringing this lifestyle to all of our friends, being able to share what it means to enjoy something beautiful.
