Andy Messenger, Jour Viaggio, Luti 38
Launching March 2023
With an enduring focus on leather know-how, craftsmanship and excellence, Berluti strives to create, season after season, a few exceptional leather bags, the result of a thorough artisanal process and unique design.
A new model is thus added to the Spring / Summer 2023 collection: the Andy Messenger, inspired by the Andy loafer. A revisited version of the Luti 38 tote and a Venezia leather version of the Viaggio travel bag complete the offering.
An ode to the iconic Andy loafer originally created in 1962 by Olga Berluti, Andy Messenger translates one of Berluti’s foremost shoemaking signatures into leatherworking technique, offering a uniquely designed cross-body briefcase that can fit a laptop. Long hand stitching and a thick embedded piping detail on the front are borrowed from Andy’s construction, while the loafer’s trademark strap becomes a band on the flap. An invisible closure and calf leather lining are also featured. The Andy Messenger can be worn by hand or cross-body thanks to a Venezia handle and an adjustable, removable strap. The bag is available in Berluti’s signature Cacao Intenso patina.
Timeless and elegant, Luti 38 is a spacious tote bag and the utmost embodiment of Berluti’s flair for craftsmanship, luxurious details and bootmaker know-how. A graphic shape in Venezia leather - available this season in Light Aluminio and Cacao Intenso patinas - meets Norwegian stitching details and a thick edge, both nodding to outsole construction. A calf leather lining and a distinctive metallic lock-and-padlock closure complete the finishings.
Berluti’s high-end bag capsule is complemented by a new iteration of the Viaggio weekender, a roomy, multi-carry bag featuring at its base a separate shoe compartment to fit one pair of shoes. Made of soft Venezia gloria leather with a rich Cacao Intenso patina this season, it features details inspired by the Jour line, including a front zipped pocket, a cotton linen lining and a curved edge that gives it its distinctive shape when worn on the shoulder.
The Luti 38 and Andy Messenger will be available in Berluti stores and from March 2023.
The Viaggio weekender will be available in Berluti stores from May 2023.
