MILAN, Jun 2, 2010 / FW/ — Continuing its tradition of innovation in urban sportswear, 18CRR81 Cerruti presents PACKABLUE, short for packable jackets in blue.

A part of 18CRR81 Cerruti Spring / Summer 2011 collection, PACKABLUE is proposed in three different models – sporty bomber jacket, hooded field jacket and classic trench coat.

Made of satin nylon and strictly in blue, all three models can be rolled and/or folded, then inserted in a special pocket sewn in the lining of the bodice after which the jacket “disappears” and it becomes a small carrier bag.

The “carrier bag” is a clever twist in the construction, making PACKABLUE highly covetable, assuring that you are never caught unaware by spring showers or summer rains.

Still, it is the quality of the jackets that make them must-have items. Rainproof and windproof, PACKABLUE are also designed for the urban lad and perfect as street wear in any metropolis, yet also can also blend in your rustic jaunts in the country.

PACKABLUE details include leather trim, drawstring, internal nets and tapes that give structure and define lines.

The “PACKABLUE” will be presented at the 78th edition of Pitti Immagine Uomo which opens on June 14 in Florence.
