CERRUTI 1881 Fall Winter 2015 Collection

The Cerruti 1881 Fall/Winter 2015 collection reflects Mr. Nino Cerruti’s philosophy of non-superfluous design, clean and modern elegance achieved by using extensively researched innovative fabrics, rich textures and a mix of tailoring and sportswear. The clothes are beautifully cut and signature details are simple and not overdone.
The Cerruti 1881 Man
The Cerruti 1881 Man is an urban professional who is masculine, sophisticated and confident. He possesses elegant but modern taste. He values understated personal luxury and has a relaxed point of view on fashion. This modern man appreciates quality, sartorial craftsmanship, and seeks to mix this classic element with a contemporary sportswear twist. He has a strong sense of individuality, understands the essential Italian roots of Cerruti, and admires the unfussy and minimal sensibility of the House.
Theme 1: Autumn Chic
With an “Upper Casual” point of view, autumn chic reveals a capsule which is rich in texture, luxurious, soft in layering/deconstruction, nonchalant in its attitude, and elegant with a casual feel. Inspired by the autumn woods and French countryside foliage, the mood of this capsule is warm, organic, and leisurely chic by nature. The color story is depicted by shades of grey, dark brown, rustic camel, military green tones, dark navy, white and khaki. Texture, layering and tonal colors are a key styling point.
