PARIS, Jan 25, 2009 (Updated Feb 8, 2009) / — Alright, President Obama had loosened up the dress code at the White House by allowing himself to be photographed without a jacket. Cerruti might actually have something up its sleeves as it sticks to the classics, but gave them a casual air for Fall 2009.
Classic suit jackets from one-button to the three-button variation, ribbed knit turtleneck sweaters and Nehru collar coats does not speak avant-garde in high street but definitely say high fashion inside the Washington beltway.
Some would say that Cerruti is playing it safe. After all, this is a season of sobriety in dressing as the whole world goes into recession. But, Cerruti has also taken a risk as it tries to attract the very conservative denizens of Capitol Hill.
