Introducing the second drop of The Essentials, Berluti’s permanent line of ready-to-wear, shoes and leather goods.
Born March 2021 and inspired by the Maison’s heritage, The Essentials is a line spanning the modern classics, elevated timeless and must-have pieces for every man’s wardrobe, and styles that Berluti clients wear in their day-to-day lives. Designed to be progressively completed according to the evolving needs of the seasons, the line now welcomes its second drop, supplementing the ongoing offering with a few selected pieces.
New ready-to-wear pieces are devised to complement classic tailoring with a chic, modern edge. Outerwear includes a dark indigo B-Way, a black long sleeved body warmer jacket and a taupe down jacket with a folding hood, all of them made of Scritto-printed water-repellent nylon and complete with a trademark Berluti leather crest. New knitwear includes a jumper and cardigan in a subtle tone-on-tone Scritto jacquard virgin wool.
New pieces from the second drop of The Essentials match perfectly with the existing pieces introduced with the launch of the line – such as a double face cashmere coat with a Scritto lining, a weekend jacket, sleek “Alessandro” trousers, a chino and a jogger.
Two new formal shoes join the emblematic “Alessandro Démesure” and the “Andy”. Both part of the “Equilibre” line, they are a celebration of Berluti’s DNA and bootmaker know-how. A timeless Chelsea boot with elastic on both sides is the perfect counterpoint to an elegant 5-eyelet lace up Oxford with perforation details on the upper. Both made from Venezia leather with a Nero Grigio patina, they are crafted using a padded insole to support the natural anatomy of the foot, using a similar approach to bespoke shoes, for exceptional comfort.
Bags use the new SIGNATURE leather - a richly textured, embossed leather replicating the SIGNATURE Canvas motif of Berluti’s crest, logo and Scritto’s undulating strokes - and include the new “On Time” briefcase as well as a thoroughly modern black version of the Toujours tote.
Accessories provide the finishing touches: leather gloves with Scritto details feature touch screen fingertips on the index and thumb and are available in black or in a patina-effect TDM Intenso shade. A pair of cufflinks and a tie pin with a palladium finish are engraved with a Scritto motif.
The second drop of The Essentials will be available both in Berluti stores and online starting September 2021.
