The Parisian brand Berluti has officially released their Autumn-Winter 2019 collection. It is the artistic director Kris Van Assche’s first creation for the fashion house. Presented in the Opera Garnier, the collection has strong hued stains and marbled patterns, inspired from the old marble tables at which craftsmen hand-dye the patina of shoes in Berluti’s manufacturer in Ferrara.
Kris Van Assche really stood out with saturated colors of reds, yellows, blues and greens in the garments. The silk shirts are all printed in dye-splattered marble, and the nylon bags are all structured and sharp in exotic leather. Strong-but-not-controlled shoulders, formal tailoring paired with purple leather coat, multi-colored knitted sweater, were all seen and gave lives to the gilded halls of Opera Garnier that night.
And now for the accessories. Leather patina shoes, the house’s signature accessories, were named Alessandro after its founder and Andy after Andy Warhol. The accessories are now given a modern touch with an addition of angular metal plates. Shoehorn pendants and miniature shoetree key rings are presented too, as a nod to Berluti’s heritage.
Kris Van Assche definitely gave his own personal touches on this new Berluti collection, and we’re all ready for some more of it.
