WRAPPING IT UP!
OUR FABRICS BECOME PROTAGONISTS OF MAJESTIC WORKS OF ART
A bridge, an architectural art piece, concealed by the creativity of the artists Christo and his wife Jeanne-Claude with our fabrics, leaving the surroundings structures intact, enveloping discretely the building adapting itself the to the magic of hiding an object, which by removing it from our sight, revealing its emptiness. A modern transformation with style between art and performance: one of the many works of art to which Lanificio Cerruti has collaborated over the years.
*With this photo, the artist Christo thanks Cerruti for the cooperation in the construction of the Pont-Neuf cover in Paris, in 1985. The Chamonix mountain guides supported the assembly of this project wearing t-shirts made with Lanificio Cerruti 1881 fabrics.
The evolution of the coat, a staple to masculinity but also perfectly suitable for women. A singular fashion masterpiece that has reached our present day untouched. Covers up, represents, recounts a story. The coat intertwines with a multitude of cultures and traditions from cold winters, air travels, dusty cars to Hollywood scripts… A large and comfortable design, a more fitted cut, a double breast, a raglan cut with an oblique slit… and when it finally meets our refined Cashmere, wool-Cashmere, soft Suri and baby Alpaca or precious Vicuna fabrics, in solid classical colors or with geometric designs, the coat becomes a luxury item of clothing

A double match: a style
that plays around with
& feminine forms
Fashion with its intuition for upcoming trends and styles accomplished a new redefinition. Sig. Nino relates this theme, retracing the origin of the manifesto of the reciprocal influence of feminine on masculine looks and vice versa: represented here by two animals: a lion and a lioness with human faces. With this philosophy in mind, for a reasonable amount of years Lanificio Cerruti’s collections are no longer constrained by the rigidity of designing collections specifically “for him” or “for her”, but they can experimenting further by creating fabrics without restrains, meeting new demands by client and their multiple identities.
