Both functional and statement-worthy, these nine items – from the Séjour card holder to the Ulysse tote bag, the Explorer backpack and the Nino clutch – are covered in an all-over Signature canvas print. Designed by Kris Van Assche, Signature is inspired from Berluti’s archives, blending the Maison’s logo and the undulating strokes of the iconic Scritto motif, and stamped over a black background with strokes of slate and lead grey reminiscent of the Parisian skyline. Made in a textured coated fabric that resists everyday use, Signature is completed with Berluti’s trademark finishings, including metallic bootmaker studs and Venezia leather details.
For the occasion, these Venezia leather elements take on a bold, joyful twist with an array of new patinas. Originally created last year specially to restore the upholstery of Pierre Jeanneret’s furniture pieces – and inspired by the rich colours found in the architecture, landscape and foliage of the north Indian city of Chandigarh -, these vibrant new colours include Utopia blue, Acqua blue, Nespola orange, Sunset purple, Rose Garden pink, Simal red and Grass green. Hand-applied to the Venezia leather details of the Signature canvas accessories, they enhance every piece with a unique depth of colour.
Nine different items are available in a variety of colourways:
