Berluti Summer 2013, the essence of luxury menswear


Look10_Shot08_005

The Berluti Spring-Summer 2013 collection by the amazing Alessandro Sartori, whose work I have been following for some years now, confirms its vision of timeless style and luxury.

It defines a new silhouette, at once modern, masculine and measured. It is a true stride forward, a new chapter in the contemporary legend of a boot-maker ever mindful of its heritage and traditions. Berluti’s savoir-faire in leathers and patinas is translated on trench-coats and safari jackets that are light and supple as a glove. All feature hand-painted seams, as well as a myriad other exceptional details, from their linings to their finishes.

Other pieces with sleeves in leather or nubuck display intricate hand-woven or re-embroidered perforations inspired by the works of the Italian artist Gioppe Di Bella, who tied up the chassis canvas to create graphic raised patterns on his paintings.

    Berluti couldn't choose a better fashion designer, whose tailoring skill made also Z Zegna's fortune. It's good to see that tailoring (classical or more contemporary, it doesn't matter) is becoming more and more a succeeding factor in a system led by the pop culture for too many years.

    1. Agree. Alessandro Sartori is an amazing fashion designer - he turned Ermenegildo Zegna into modern menswear and it is reviving Berluti at his best.
