The Abstract Approach: Berluti Presents Its Winter 2021 Collection

Berluti presents its Winter 2021 collection, with touches of painter Lev Khesin’s works.

For its winter 2021 collection, Berluti adapts the works of Berlin-based Russian painter Lev Khesin, whose color and texture forms also inform techniques and fabrications. The contemporary artist expresses himself in abstract, tactile patterns created through multiple layers and colors of silicone paint. His practice echoes that of Berluti’s artisanal patina methods, drawing a natural connection between both the visual and practical domains of Lev Khesin and Berluti.

Interpreted in garments and accessories, Khesin’s works create the foundation for a collection that embodies fluidity, adaptability and the human hand. Subtly unstructured lines cut a soft and relaxed tailoring silhouette. There’s a feeling of comfort expressed in neo-suiting that fuses traditional formal dress codes with those of the workwear and sportswear wardrobes. Suits executed in block colors picked up from the palette of the artist are then deconstructed in styling and multi-color tailoring expressions. All the geometric patterns from Khesin’s visual universe are then aligned between the key pieces, making it a vibrant collection for Berluti this season.
