Founded by Alessandro Berluti , Berluti has been making shoes for the elegant man since 1895. Offbeat classicism and technical virtuosity are keynotes of the House, while its character remains the same. To visit Berluti is to experience first-hand the leading character traits of the House. Inspired by Parisian architecture, the founders of the House designed their models on pure, classic, timeless lines. At todayâ€™s Berluti, classic style is still a sound value, but never a constraint. The models in their collections are worn with unrestricted ease. Like the famous Berluti knot, which Olga learned by watching the expert hands of the Duke of Windsor, they are elegant, irreproachable and supple. The creative flair is always there, apparent in a detail, a curve, a seam, or a color.
