Nino Cerruti was born in Biella, Italy in 1930, and inherited the family woollen business in the 50s after the sudden death of his father, in the textile mill founded by his grandfather in the late 19th century. Using his experience of producing top quality fabrics, Nino decided to branch out into the clothing market, producing his first collection, Hitman, in 1957. Ten years later he established a menswear and womenswear line, and opened his own boutique in Paris. Today the Nino Cerruti brand retails all over the world, and has a collection of boutiques across Europe, Asia and the USA. Nino Cerruti also produces a range of perfumes and fragrances, many of which incorporate the number 1881 into the title, the year in which his grandfather established the family textile mill. The Nino Cerruti fragrance & perfume range here at Fragrance Direct includes a collection of eau de toilette and eau de parfum sprays, aftershaves, deodorants, body moisturisers and bathing products.
