Berluti loves leather in latest fall/winter 2020 show
The brand has always been known for its love of leather.
But now, Kris Van Assche, the Belgian creator who rebooted the French cobbler into a major fashion player, wants to make Berluti as the tailer of choice from the stars.
The brand’s latest men’s collection was unveiled this weekend, with hundreds of screaming fans waiting outside the Opera Garnier, looking to catch a glimpse of Korean K-Pop heartthrob, Sehun and Taiwanese-Canadian actor Eddie Peng.
This year Van Assche produced a collection that was as easy on the eyes as it was to touch. The former Dior frontman has long been calling for a serious return to tailoring, and the rest of the fashion world seems to have caught up with him – let’s just say that Berluti wasn’t the only big-name brand to concentrate on the classic men’s suit.
Berluti unveiled re-thought out double-breasted suits, in rich colours such as red, purple, and green. Supermodel Bella Hadid rocked a mothball-blue in the co-ed show, whose front row was full of American rappers.
Of course, in typical Berluti showmanship, typical materials such as cotton were swapped out for the brand’s luxurious leather.
Van Assche also played with the crowd, making a puffer coat in feather-light patent leather, as well as Prince of Wales pattern overcoats and bomber jackets, finely woven with leather.
