Lanificio Cerruti & Nigel Cabourn
Started in 2012, the prestigious collaboration between the historic Biella based Cerruti Bros.
Woollen Mill and Nigel Cabourn has this year been strengthened thanks to the 2013-14 Fall-Winter collection created by the English designer, on display at Milan White Show in an exhibition devoted to “tradition, value and the beautiful”.
The suggestive show was conceived to celebrate the sixtieth anniversary of the English conquest of Mount Everest and is the perfect frame for items that take inspiration from original early XX century outwear clothing. Soft wraparound shapes, warm sober colours and classical models of British taste characterise a project that marks the beginning of a wider use of “Lanificio Cerruti” noble fabrics by Nigel Cabourn.
A lover of outdoor clothing, famous as an expert of English vintage fabrics of which he is an enthusiastic collector, the stylist has this year created for the first time both the Men’s and Women’s collections taking inspiration from early XX century hunting and fishing wear, in keeping with the typical style of the English nature-loving aristocracy. Outstanding among the main items are a reinterpretation of the traditional Montgomery in 100% cashmere, only 750 grams in weight, in vintage orange and military green, and a number of women’s items specially created for the White Show in the noble cashmere from “Lanificio Cerruti”.
While enhancing taste, excellence and tradition, “Lanificio Cerruti” and Nigel Cabourn devote their collaboration to the promotion of beautiful and valuable historic items.
