Welcome to the new republic. Kris Van Assche’s inaugural Berluti collection forecasts a reinvigorated blueprint for the 120-year-old French luxury goods house. Re-establishing the modern man’s essentials, the collection ranges from a two-button suit jacket, a white poplin shirt, and a razor-sharp tuxedo in black and white color-ways. Meanwhile chunky leather sneakers come in white, red, and blue (Berluti’s signature French shades) as well as in slightly mutated black and green. Crisp white-leather briefcases, featuring a detachable strap and an updated “1895 Paris” logo, offer a cross-body spin on the business-casual standby.
