Berluti’s Parisian world of leather goods has made its way to the Los Angeles market.

The Paris-based maker of shoes, accessories and apparel bowed its first boutique in the Los Angeles area, located in Beverly Hills on Brighton Way. This marks the company’s second stand-alone store in California after South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa. The company also has a shop-in-shop store at Neiman Marcus in San Francisco.

“This emblematic Beverly Hills address is an affirmation of our presence in the U.S. and marks the opening of our fifth store in America,” said Berluti chief executive officer Antoine Arnault in a statement. “The innovative new concept pays homage to Los Angeles while remaining faithful to Berluti’s deep traditions in the art of leather and patina.”

The 1,100-square-foot space was designed with herringbone patterned wood floors, gray walls, onyx and lacquered fixtures and touches of bronze.

The Beverly Hills boutique, which held a soft opening this week, exclusively carries Berluti’s Playfield sneaker in natural lizard.

The company, founded in 1895 as a shoemaker, has since gone on to introduce leather goods in 2005 followed by apparel in 2011.

Berluti operates more than 45 stores globally.
