Cerruti may no longer be a household name, but with a relaunch under the direction of Yves Saint Laurent–trained Jean-Paul Knott, the line may return to the spotlight. Nino Cerruti took over his family’s wool business in the fifties and designed his first men's collection in 1967, considered revolutionary at the time for its meticulous lines and quality materials. Ten years later, Cerruti launched his women's line, followed by fragrance, jeans, accessories, and more. It became a favorite in Hollywood, with Jack Nicholson, Julia Roberts, Richard Gere, Tom Hanks, and Denzel Washington on its fan-list. Narciso Rodriguez even did time—briefly—as Cerruti’s creative director in the nineties. Nino Cerruti created his last collection in 2002. The company then struggled under a string of new owners and designers, and declared bankruptcy in 2004. The hiatus ended when the company found a new financial backer, and with a spring 2009 men's collection under Knott's belt, the fashion world has its fingers crossed for a comeback.
