Cerruti 1881: Men's show Autumn/Winter 2018/19 (with interview)

Creative Director: Jason BasmajianLocation : Palais de TokyoCollection: An urban and elegant wardrobe. The cuts are impeccable, distinct, the materials luxurious and warm. Big coats and outerwear are the pioneering pieces of the season. The parkas combine technical fabrics and leather, whilst others are padded or reversible. A military influence in the coats and sheepskin jackets with a khaki riverside, and in a waxed leather coat. The knitwear is worked and close fitting. Prince of Wales check and chevron motifs and worked into XL versions. To note: The women’s pieces that use the same chic codes as for the men, a belted coat and straight trousers. Interview with Jason Basmajin: We’re talking about collections which are genderless, we’re taking about sportswear and formal as no longer being one definition, we’re talking today about streetwear, we’re talking about youth culture, and for me it’s about taking the house DNA and how do we infuse those codes without changing our style. It was decidedly urban, purposefully no true suits and ties, it was really about breaking up the wardrobe in between sportswear and tailoring and this was something of which Mr Ceruti was really a pioneer, back in the day not only with interesting fabrics and using technical fabrics and luxury fabrics but also mixing styles.A lot of that inspiration came from Bauhaus textiles and are very graphic so we wanted to do a very modern interpretation, a very graphic interpretation of those textiles and those combined with the jacquard herringbones and some of the Prince of Wales oversized scale, I thought made a very modern vibration throughout the collection. It’s a new way to dress for a man, a sweater, a sweatshirt with a nice long coat it can really take you from the office, not everybody needs to get formally dressed anymore and sometimes it’s about dressing up for the pleasure of dressing up.
