Leather suits could become a new Berluti trademark

Famous for high-end shoes for more than 125 years, Paris-based brand Berluti has added what will become a new “trademark” item, according to parent group LVMH.

Reviewing the men’s runway shows its brands put on at the January edition of Paris Fashion Week, LVMH picked out the ready-to-wear components of the autumn-winter 2020-2021 collection that Berluti had on display.

This is far from the first time that Berluti has devoted time, space and creativity to men’s clothing. Its current collection includes coats, parkas, jackets and hoodies in a number of different kinds of leather, including calfskin, lambskin, deer and, for a number of its longer coats, kangaroo leather.

In its next autumn-winter range, however, it will add leather suits. LVMH said the brand’s artistic director, Kris Van Assche, is “intensifying the Berluti heritage, transposing its shoemaking expertise to tailoring”.

The leather the brand is using in the suits has, like the uppers of its shoes, an attractive patina, with LVMH describing it as “softened and refined”. The material Berluti has chosen to use for these suits is deerskin.
