• A return to roots


The famous shoemaker has opened its third Paris outlet, a few steps from Rue du Mont-Thabor where Torello Berluti first opened a shop back in 1928. On its three floors (over 500m²), Berluti's different lines – footwear, ready-to-wear, acces­sories, leather goods – are displayed in a chic setting designed by architect Gwenaël Nicolas. All leather and patina, her décor connects tradition and modernity beautifully, with prints by photo­graphers Rodney Smith and Elliott Erwitt gracing the walls of this sumptuous world. For the most demanding customers there's a space devoted to the company's traditional business of bespoke shoes. Founded in 1895, this Paris institution never fails to please well-dressed men with its elegant, sophisticated creations, and since 2011 and the arrival of Alessandro Sartori as ready-to-wear director, its masculine vocabulary has taken a new leap forward.
