BERLUTI BASICS: For those impatient to see the first designs by Berluti’s new artistic director Alessandro Sartori, a capsule collection of casual-chic wardrobe basics has just arrived in a selection of the brand’s stores internationally. Centered on a navy palette with brown accents, the line offers a classic cotton shirt in white or navy, a smart overdyed jean with a brown wash, silk/cashmere blend scarves and a V-neck silk/cotton sweater and cardigan with black leather details at the shoulder seams, giving a nod to the house’s leather roots. A retro leather jacket in aged navy or black leather with a sporty cotton collar and waistband, marl gray cotton lining and large buttoned front pockets is said to be ultra limited in quantity. There are also two bag and footwear styles. Prices range from 390 euros, or $520 at average exchange rates, for a shirt, to 3,900 euros,or $5,200, for a leather jacket.
