Alessandro Timeless & versatile

Like its founder, Berluti embodies a style that is classic with a subtle touch
of boldness. After arriving in Paris from his native Italy at the dawn of
the 20th century, the young Alessandro Berluti lent his given name to the first pair of shoes he designed. A signature with the resonance of a manifesto.
And a symbol of elegance that has traveled through the years without ever
falling out of fashion.
