CERRUTI 1881 Spring Summer 2014 Collection

For spring/summer 2014 CERRUTI 1881 demonstrates both its styling genius and its technical prowess. Clean lines, cutting-edge technology and cool comfort are the hallmarks of a remarkable collection.
Clean. Light. Refined. These are the keys to the collection for this season. Composed in a palette of earth tones and tropical weight fabrics, the collection includes pieces that offer a modern, relaxed take on business wear. Unconstructed, unlined and ultra-lightweight jackets offer a sophisticated counterpoint to  naturally crinkled, slightly metallic trousers.
New silhouettes emerge: an updated trench coat crafted from crisp-water-repellent fabric is long and sleek while close-fitting and cropped blousons are masculine and playful. Necklines are kept low and narrow, trousers cut slim.
Sportswear is dynamic, emphasizing movement and technical achievement. A perforated leather jacket in deep blue is lightweight, innovative and edgy. A sleek green-grey suit fits perfectly thanks to subtle additions of elastic.
As the summer heats up, CERRUTI 1881 turns to a palette of blue, white, turquoise and grey to keep things cool. An exercise in stylish restraint, a navy blue and white blouson teamed with drawstring trousers perfect for summer. Cleverly made from bonded black and blue fabrics that have been burned out to create stripes, a new spin on the Breton T-shirt, is born. White jersey-crochet knitwear does double duty, adding edgy flair to casual dress or substituting for traditional jackets.
Tradition takes another turn as suiting fabrics are used for outerwear. A marvelously constructed hounds-tooth blouson in lightweight-cotton linen is water-repellent and wind proof. A perfect blend of innovation and imagination.
As always, CERRUTI 1881 perfectly blend its signature refined elegance with subtle detailing and technical innovation to create a spring/ summer collection that is both functional and stylish.
