Paris Fashion Week – Berluti Fall/Winter 2013

Berluti hosted their Fall/Winter collection in the Musee National d’Histoire Naturelle. This presentation had to be one of the highlights of my trip to the Paris Fashion Week last month. One actually had to walk through a winter wonderland – thanks to the recent and unusual snowfall for Paris – lit by candle light to arrive at the main building. Once inside, Gabriel Zeller and I were given flashlights: special wooden and leather ones for the occasion, and had to find our way through the darkened aisles of the museum to the main hall. It was quite a unique experience given the fact there were mannequins clothed in Berluti’s current seasons offerings set up all along the path. The best part was yet to come and the collection really was the highlight of the whole show.

First a bootmaker, Berluti has expanded into a full range of ready-to-wear clothing. The shoes usually are antiqued in the very typical Berltui manner and the shoes sometimes feature scripture on them. The clothes were outstanding as they used a wide range of unique fabrics. At first glance, many of the clothes looked as though they were constructed from ordinary windowpanes, solids and stripes. Upon further inspection, you could see that the fabric was truly different. My favorite pieces of the collection were the windowpane double breasted suit, Russian calf Chelsea boots and the red asymmetrical leather jacket.

    A lot of these styles from Berluti remind me of the aviation trend that hit so hard at NYFW. I just did a big trend analysis of this style that you might like:

    The only place you can purchase the Berluti ready to wear collection is Colette in Paris.
