Cerruti’s spring collection marked a departure for creative director Aldo Maria Camillo, who took the brand in a more casual direction with outfits inspired by a road trip from Palm Springs to Los Angeles.
He channeled basketball gear with long vests trimmed with contrasting bands and paired with baggy Bermuda shorts. The latter were layered over cropped pants and topped with patchwork printed silk shirts and mismatched jackets, in a somewhat clumsy take on the urban-meets-polished aesthetic championed by Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci.
While the outfits likely had a familiar air for Chicago Bulls shooting guard Jimmy Butler, attending his first fashion show, they may throw customers who cherish the label for its rich Italian fabric heritage and classic style. It’s one thing to veer off the beaten path, but another to throw out your road map.
