Berluti has opened its first boutique in Germany.

The 5,942-square-foot boutique on Frankfurt’s Goethestrasse street is designed as a “cabinet of curiosities meets the gentleman’s club,” the company said. Traditional materials are used in contemporary ways to offer a blend of casualness and sophistication. The facade is gray and the shop offers touches of the brand’s signature Venezia leather on armchairs, walls and floors.

The shop offers Berluti’s shoes, leather goods and ready-to-wear, and includes Alessandro shoes, Un Jour and Deux Jour briefcases, Playtime sneakers and Toys for Boys accessories.

Berluti traces its roots to Paris in 1895 and has built its reputation as a shoemaker. Leather goods were added in 2005 and, in 2011, with the appointment of artistic director Alessandro Sartori, the brand expanded into apparel.

Berluti operates more than 40 stores in major cities around the world.
