In times of limitation, human connection reinvents itself. In moments like these, we are Living Apart Together. On 8 April 2021, Berluti presents its Winter 2021 collection in a performance art installation staged digitally in Paris and in Shanghai with attendance. Check the news Berluti Winter 2021 and more on Switzerland based Luxury Lifestyle Magazine – Kenleaks Magazine.
Driven to defy the constraints of our time, Artistic Director Kris Van Assche collaborates with video director Antoine Asseraf and creative consultant Yoann Lemoine (aka Woodkid) on a virtual show experience devoted to the figurative act of crossing borders.
Bags echo the fluidity of the collection in soft and supple manifestations. They are adorned with charms including Berluti’s signature shoe tree and multi-colour pendants by the Spanish artist Jorge Penadés, whose practice revolves around the upcycling of leather overstock into compressed solid objects. Shoes embody the techniques of garments, from the upcycled triple-layered platform sole of a derby to a textured platform foam sole morphed with a classic leather shoe. Square-toed brogues are embellished with point norvégien, while new sneakers in patina leathers hybridise the dress codes of sports and formalwear.
Intensifying the artisanal value, point norvégien is applied to outerwear and suiting. A white stitch embroidery traditional employed in shoe-making – and which can only be achieved by hand – it translates into the piping of quilted leather jackets, the trims of a leather suit, and the cushioning of a padded puffer coat. Observing similar notes of the hand-spun and folky, a reversible puffer jacket is realised entirely in off-white shearling.
