The cult cobbler-turned luxury lifestyle player took over the picturesque Palais Royal gardens to present its second men’s ready-to-wear collection.

A series of transporting vignettes opened with a maze of hedges, in which chestnut-colored brogues and boxy leather bags were nestled. In the background, models wore languid suede coats with raw denim jeans. For Berluti, the silhouette — based mainly on Fifties proportions for spring — always starts with the shoes.

Models wearing the rest of the collection inhabited a rose garden, an artist’s studio and a retro film studio. Titled “A Collector’s Dream,” the display was based on the idea of a guy building a wardrobe of his own favorite pieces, rather than being a slave to seasonal trends. Loaded with special hand treatments, standout looks included a black blazer in a linen/raffia blend; shirts in herringbone block prints with matching foulards tucked around the neck; and tuxedos in copper and petrol blue raw silk, echoing the colors of the butterflies pinned in boxes scattered around one vignette.
