Fluid Sartorialism at Cerruti

For Cerruti's fiftieth anniversary Jason Basmajian played on some classic Nino Cerruti tropes — though the show's scope spanned perhaps too wide for comfort.

PARIS, France — In a menswear season peppered with debuts and anniversaries, Cerruti hash-tagged their Autumn Winter 2017-18 runway to signify their fiftieth year, and paraded fifty looks to celebrate it. The company's heritage in milling fine Italian fabrics remains crucial to their offer, and creative director Jason Basmajian succeeded in highlighting those fluid sartorial textiles in a dapper opening sequence of loose formal wear that played on some classic Nino Cerruti tropes: a charcoal pinstripe three piece worn shirtless felt authentic and fresh, and suspenders hung from wide trousers for a languid after-hours cool.

Later passages felt less effortless: the show's scope spanned perhaps too wide for comfort, when a whole host of fancy leathers were cut and paneled into trench coats and blousons of deep forest green and inky purple hues, and total looks in tailored denim appeared as an overt daywear gesture.
