PFW AW18: Cerruti 1881

RADIATING chic in each piece sent down the Cerruti AW18 runway, designer Jason Basmajian excelled in serving a varied collection that remained true to the well-known tailored style of Cerutti. Basmajian introduced refreshing pops of colour to the collection such as the opening rose-coloured coat look and yellow coat worn by model Amalie Gassmann, who he described as the Cerruti It girl. Set in Palais de Tokyo the show exuded a clean and sharp feel that was made even stronger by the industrial white LED tubes placed in geometric lines. This was a clever setting that harmonised with the theme of the collection.

The show featured a mix of military style, post-punk, work wear. Although the boxy-fit jumpers and extended collars were new to Cerruti, elegance still shone in the use of chic tones of mustard, khaki green, brown, and blues, and sophisticated materials such as leather, shearling, and velvet. Belted outerwear remained a prominent feature of the AW18 show like last year’s AW17 collection.

Jason Bamajian struck an admirable balance between traditional Cerruti tailoring and modern design in each look. As the show progressed, cashmere knitwear featured exaggerated sleeves, sweatshirts presented a youthful logo print and all models wore cropped tailored trousers. Cerruti has always proved that quality and sophistication are timeless and the AW18 show reinforced that with a subtle twist. Introducing the bumbag, back with attitude across Milan catwalks and a key piece of any streetstyle, into the show was one of many indicators throughout the collection of an interesting future for the fashion house.
