Cerruti-Spring Summer 2014 Menswear Collection in Paris (with ITW)
It’s the second catwalk for aldo maria camillo, at the reigns of the cerruti collection. for this summer season, the designer re-works the belt, bringing it up to the bust, shown on one side, and disappearing on the other, to bring a new dimension to coats and parkas and also creating a round shoulder effect. colours are deep and earthy, composed of burgundy, black and navy blue... a rope print becomes the leading motif on casual pieces and applied in 3d on mesh or on suits. a coherent collection that doesn’t forget to reinterpret male classics, such as tailoring; a true signature of the italian label.

aldo maria camillo : what i could say is that there is a certain dandism, it’s this idea of an attitude of a dandy in a modern way, and more dynamic also. so this is the reason why you see a lot of parkas, sportswear, coming from the military feeling, also this kind of religious uniform as it is as well a uniform. so i really enjoyed the idea to mix and match two different worlds. all together with the marine feeling that is really an admission of summer, of the spring/summer collection.
i found it a very interesting idea to just move the belt to another position; from the waist to the breast. i found the feeling of being protected very interesting. plus, this kind of belt changes the silhouette; giving another kind of feeling, round at the shoulder, closed at the breast and giving this a shape, falling down very far from the body, which i found quite sophisticated.
