There was a sophisticated nautical undercurrent in Cerruti’s SS12 collection, where navy blue dominated and a rope and metal hook print was seen on a number of garments. Worn on a shirt and trousers by a bedhead model, the print was reminiscent of pyjamas, whilst elsewhere it was seen on oak brown trousers and paired with a smart off-white jacket.
Cerruti’s formal-wear offering comprised of double breasted jackets with peaked lapels, unbuttoned jackets layered over buttoned up waistcoats and smart slim-fitting jackets with sloping shoulders. Each was worn with suede round-toed boots, snugly tucked away under the hem of tapered trousers. There was a clean purity to the midnight blue suit worn over a thin dove grey t-shirt and pared with boots in the same delicate hue.
A harmony of tones was upheld throughout the show with an array of grey, blue, white and brown shades. The selection of prints, textures and tones added depth to the clean cuts. Stripes were seen vertically on shirts and horizontally on trousers whilst the sharp lines of a blue diamond print were softened when seen on delicate knits.
