As part of the spectacular roll out of a new luxury menswear label, BERLUTI opened its refurbished London store at 43 Conduit Street last week. BERLUTI is of course the traditional shoe brand with a signature technique to hyper-polish leather to a dégradé lustre. Now there’s BERLUTI fashions too – a dressed-up yet sporty proposition in amazingly luscious fabrics. Particularly eye catching in the London store, however, is all the leather: leather walls, leather mannequins, leather furniture, leather door handles, leather railings along the stairs. On the floor is this delightful parquet, seen above, made of wood mooring posts sourced from the Venice harbour. Indeed, the parking poles for gondolas that have been made redundant are now on the floor at BERLUTI. Doesn’t it make total sense for such a shoe-friendly brand to pay great attention to what we walk on?
