Last night, in Paris, in the splendid setting of the historic “Girafe” restaurant in Place du Trocadero, Brunello Cucinelli accepted the prestigious international prize, the “Neiman Marcus Award for Distinguished Service in the Field of Fashion 2023,” which the Dallas-based luxury goods department store bestows on those who have most influenced Fashion around the world since the 1930s.
This very important recognition, which for decades has been awarded to great personalities, celebrities and style icons such as Coco Chanel, Christian Dior, Valentino, Giorgio Armani, Miuccia Prada and Karl Lagerfeld, rewards the daily dedication of the skilful hands of the Solomeo-based Fashion House. It recognizes a company devoted to the finest Made in Italy and inspired since its foundation by the great values of Humanistic Capitalism and Human Sustainability.
Brunello Cucinelli commented as follows: «I am immensely grateful to the highly esteemed Geoffroy van Raemdonck and Lana Todorovich, who at this particular point in time have the honour of representing Neiman Marcus, one of the highest expressions of fashion and luxury in the world, but also an icon of lifestyle and elegance. I would also like to thank all the people at Neiman whom I have admired during our twenty years of collaboration as human beings of great humanity, as well as appreciating them as very special professionals. I feel particularly honoured and I like to think of this award as a high recognition that gives credit to the people of Solomeo, to the creative hands of the best Italian craftsmanship that – with their daily dedication – have built 'The Dream of Solomeo' together with my family and all my co-workers. In our work, as in life, we have always tried to be inspired by the values of Humanistic Capitalism, linked to Human Sustainability, with respect for the human being and in harmony with the whole of Creation. Thank you, thank you very much».
