The Pierre shoe
by Berluti

The masculine equivalent of the little black dress, the Pierre shoe marks a return to the fundamental values of Berluti. Simplicity, a balanced shape, pure lines – the style is distilled to the essential. At once timeless and of its time, it is interpreted as a derby with one or two eyelets, a court shoe and a loafer.

 

Artistic Director Olga Berluti allowed herself a single liberty for this collection – the asymmetric perforations of the leather. They dramatically lengthen the line of the two-eyelet derby, accentuate the contours of the vamp on the loafer, and give the court shoe the air of a "Richelieu".
