#CoatPorn: Cerruti 1881 Fall 2018 Menswear

I have been feeling a lot of great outerwear this season. It’s making me excited to see which pieces the fashionable men of the fashion pack will add to their wardrobes next season. If they are looking for perfect tailoring and bold style they really look no further than Cerruti 1881. An array of post-punk, military and street-wear inspirations is the source for an eclectic, and electric collection, which is, as always, permeated with the codes of Cerruti chic. A palette of warm, sophisticated tones – black, burgundy, creme, khaki, nutmeg and mustard – and refine materials – velvet, shearling, cashmere, silk jacquard technical wool– create the counterpoint to an angular, wiry silhouette, with either broad shoulders, cinched waist or more fluid A-line helped make the rather classic shapes of these looks look extremely luxe and expensive.Large, comfortable coats and outerwear are the season’s key pieces. The parkas combine technical fabrics and leather, to start with, while others are quilted or reversible. Some with piping. The military influence is present in the khaki shearling and wool cloth coats and vests, and in a nutmeg-color waxed leather coat, which is worn belted at the waist. As I have said in many of my reviews I am a coat hoarder and love finding new sources of bold outerwear statements, and that is exactly what I found when I was watching this show. I want pretty much every single piece in this collection, but my favorite coat what the black, red, and white gingham plaid double breasted coat. That isn’t something I have anything like in my wardrobe and I think it would be a great addition. Tailoring is featured, often in association with sportswear pieces, creating the perfect balance between formal and casual. Many of the pieces in this collection are extremely versatile. With pieces that can be dressed up or down depending on mood and occasion. If feel like that is something that men will be drawn to. Pieces that can add a heightened sense of taste in many ways. Wool or technical jacquard track bottoms and leather utility trousers mix with oversize jackets and coats. Check, Prince – of-Wales and herringbone patterns are worked in their XL versions, as a reference to early 80s’ aesthetics, which are combined with an exclusive graphic motif inspired by the Bauhaus fabrics design. The trousers, in turn, have become more slim-fitting, with a higher waist, and in some cases feature cummerbunds. The thick, textured sweaters come cropped and fitted, to be worn layered or tucked into trousers.
