Cerruti 1881 is a brand of the fashion house Cerruti founded in 1967 in Paris by the Italian stylist and fashion producer Nino Cerruti.

The Cerruti house designs, manufactures, distributes, and retails luxury ready-to-wear, jeans, fragrances, sportswear, leather goods, watches, and accessories. The brand markets these products under several, highly specialized sub-labels including Cerruti 1881, Cerruti 18CRR81, Cerruti Jeans, Cerruti Parfums.

In 1967 the Cerruti label was launched with the opening of the flagship store, at 3 Place de la Madeleine in Paris, France, in order to be closer to the international fashion capital. The place is also the headquarters of the firm.

In August 2006, the company became property of the American firm MatlinPatterson Global Advisors.

The Cerruti house offers three lines, each for men and women: Cerruti (top line), Cerruti 1881 (diffusion line) and 18CRR81 (sportswear). Cerruti's flagship store is located at 3, Place de la Madeleine in Paris, France.
