Berluti Interview Menswear Spring/Summer 2016 - Paris
A burst of colours at Berluti.A burst of colours at Berluti. Alessandro Sartori presented a collection in the gardens of the Picasso museum, where bright colours (turquoise, yellow, apple green, red, purple) are paired one on top of the other to form silhouettes that shine in the light, inspired by the work of Le Corbusier. The suits fall impeccably and are worn in a relaxed style with fine knitwear and trainers on the feet. The leather waterproof takes on several aspects, shiny or matte for the short jackets, parkas and trenches. A complete wardrobe which sways between sophistication and simplicity, between city and nature, for men looking for quality and a non-ostentatious luxury.
Alessandro Sartori Interview:
The inspiration is really starting from the beautiful colours, from the beautiful city of Chandigarh that Corbusier built a long time ago, more than 50 years ago, the city was actually one of the first big projects in India so all the bright colours like the red, the blue, the turquoise, the yellow are faded by the sun, but also because we are on a grey concrete base. All of these fabrics that you see have been dip-dyed in grey, and then dip-dyed in colour.
Here we have 3 different types of leather from calf to kangaroo, but mostly the idea of having matte or shiny or a matte surface again which is completely water repellent. I love the idea of mixing but not only because I like to mix the silhouette or the garments inside the silhouette, but mostly because I love the idea to take very couture quality like fabrics but to do a sporty garment.
It’s a complete collection, we’re also working a lot of with bespoke which is really important, growing, very, very much. But most of all what I really like is that there is not a target as far as the age, or a target as far as the nations, the target is the style, the design and the type of sense of design that the men have.
