Marika Barbie + [Nino Cerruti]

2011 According to Cerruti

As I mentioned yesterday, 2016 has about as much to offer us as there are designers! The variations, emphases, and silhouettes on the runways span a panorama of looks, all depending on the designer.

While the main focus of this site is on emerging designers around the world, from time to time we set out compass on the griffes—those who have long emerged and gained a name in the world of fashion.

So, let’s turn our attention now to Cerruti’s press release and learn what the 2016 spring/summer season will bring to us.

“The first passage of the show sets the tone of the collection: innate Parisian chic. Between Saint Germain-des-PrĂ©s and Bob Richardson, the Cerruti man breathes an air of ultra-contemporary refinement.

Shaped around a fresh, sharp-cut sartorial shoulder, the silhouette remains notably fitted. Boldly adjusted double-breasted jackets combined with barely flared trousers for a 70’s feel. Alternatively, big jumpers over slim leg trousers offer an equally convincing look.

Beautifully created, trench coats in compact wool gabardine play with length. Invigorating, expressional colors work to energize the silhouette. Available in a rich palette of colors (taupe, grape, khaki, fischia, blue), the garments can be worn effortlessly under a denim racket or a three-piece suit. And cede their place gracefully to jersey polos in glazed cotton or cotton silk.

The tuxedo is no longer restricted to eveningwear. Worked in a technical cotton or colored leather, it becomes a part of the daytime silhouette. Wrap collars, Bermudas with a tailored stripe or shorts with contrasting belt detail inspire new combinations.

Regardless of the silhouette, accessories take centre stage: peccary mittens by Causse, woven straw hats by Philipp Treacy, leather luggage by Pinel & Pinel. Available from July in the newly renovated Madeleine flagship store. “
