Alessandro Sartori, The Artistic Director of the famous men’s footwear brand, Berluti, hosted an exclusive cocktail at Qbara restaurant and lounge on Tuesday April 15th.
Guest enjoyed cocktails and canapés while being dazzled by a trunkshow that showcased the brand’s new ready-to-wear collection as well as its trademark shoes and accessories. Alessandro skillfully guided guests through each outfit in the collection, describing his inspiration for each design as well as the workmanship that went into the collection.
The foundations of Berluti date back to Paris in 1895 and have been built by four generations of the Berluti family, who cultivated an exceptional know-how in the mastery of last making, a deep understanding of fine footwear and a passion for leather and patina. Berluti today is far more than a bootmaker. The brand’s foray into made-to-measure or ready-to wear clothing collections offer an innovative alternative, while remaining firmly rooted in the Berluti ethos.
Another statement piece from the collection, Plaid Blazer. This marvelous piece should be worn with just a plain trousers or wore it with it matching chinos. Stunning murse and white crisp shirt you'll be rocking the event like no other.
Bespoke suits and blazers, well-tailored pants and waistcoats which really suits my style, eye-catching dapper shoes that make an statement. Dapper pieces that every stylish guy must-have.
Impeccable style, intricate designs, magnificent tailoring what more can you ask for? Berluti have it all.
Berluti is a company that manufactures and retails shoes and boots solely for men. It is known for its unique leather finishing. It also makes and sells a line of leather goods such as belts, bags, and wallets with similar finish.
It is based in Paris on the rue Marbeuf. It was founded in 1895 by Italian Alessandro Berluti and is now run by Olga Squeri (also known as Olga Berluti). The LVMH group acquired Berluti in 1993. The brand has very limited distribution—in the US it can only be found at their New York and Miami stores, while in Europe it is limited to seven Berluti boutiques, along with an additional six in the Middle East and 25 in Asia.
Berluti launched its first prêt-à-porter collections in 2012, and acquired Paris tailor Arny's the same year.
Berluti is headed since 2012 by LVMH's CEO Bernard Arnault's son, Antoine Arnault. In March 2014, Isabella Capece Galeota became director of image and communications.
