Miami Vice at Cerruti

The suiting trope is well played out, but anchored this collection with plenty of long, roomy tailoring; it was the sportier separates that diluted the message.

PARIS, France — As far as no-brainers go, Miami Vice is a sure-fire suiting inspiration for summer, and when Cerruti's Jason Basmajian clocked the fact that Nino Cerruti himself had a hand in the original, there was no stopping him from exploring the cuts and colours so linked with the cult series. In 1984, they were daring and new. A t-shirt with a double-breasted blazer? How gangster!

Fast forward to 2017 and the trope is well played out, yet anchored this collection with plenty of long, roomy tailoring in a palette of chalky greys, pale mustard, dusty pinks and petrol blue that played with the labels softer side — the one linked to its rich textile heritage. He made a good case for tailored and belted shorts too, however it was the sportier separates that diluted the message here. Logo-ed and printed sweats felt superfluous to Cerruti's sartorial skew: they are the kind of piece that the brand's elusive 'millennial' customer will surely shop elsewhere.
