For his first runway collection for the house of Berluti, artistic director Kris Van Assche turned a meta lens on the brand with a focus on its signature patina—shedding new light on the transparency of color that has long been associated with its classic leather shoes. He has interpreted the patina in ready-to-wear for the first time, saturating garments like leather blazers and coats as seen in BG’s fall magazine above.
Van Assche was also captivated by an old marble table located in Berluti’s Ferrara, Italy shoe factory that has been used by craftsmen over the years. The table, stained with pigments, has served as the backdrop for a wealth of reds, yellows, blues, and greens printed on silk shirts.
Van Assche certainly proves that he brings a fresh eye to the storied house, offering men of all walks of life something to be excited about this fall.
