Paris Menswear AW15: Cerruti 1881 Paris

Masters of the sartorial sophistication, Cerruti 1881 Paris have staged a grand effort in fusing formalwear and sporty utility-wear to maximum effect. It was creative director Aldo Maria Camillo’s job to do so and this saw him summon all of his most innovative style touch-points and pool his most entrusted cultural and artistic references to succeed.

At the root of AW15 was German Fluxus artist, environmental activist and visionary Joseph Beuys, whose work Camillo channelled into a neat collection of 25 pieces that were all equally informed by Beuys’ diverse appreciation for the tactile. Patch-working leather, fabric and suede brought out a new durability for the harshest season in the calendar and each gloved-up look was instantly suited, booted and ready to go.

Trench coats and blouson jackets didn’t take on any radical new forms but paid closer attention to the way in which the finest materials were laid out on the male form, with trousers getting narrower and lapels getting wider than we have seen up until now. Silhouettes then became elongated furthermore with audaciously long scarves in loud prints and paired with long sleek fits that came together perfectly.

Each look is entirely capable of asserting one’s own individuality without too much pre-mediation, from the silky shirts to the alpaca hats, this season saw Cerruti strive for all of the sleek ideals they epitomise and conquer them swiftly in the process.
