It’s been 10 months since Kris Van Assche was appointed creative director of Berluti, departing the storied couturier Dior and setting up shop within a brand long-established not for its garments but, first and foremost, its “exquisite leather” and its handmade shoes. “Luxury takes time. I needed these months to understand Berluti and turn the page,” he reflected backstage. “It’s a totally different know-how: I come from a luxury house, but this is a different kind of luxury.”
Kris van Assche’s TRENDS proposals:
Scarlet - Hot Pink combination
Patinated leather on clothing ( even on suits)
Overcoats will always be … grey
Slim and skinny are the new lines on trousers.
Ponyskin is the next new thing on jackets and accessories.
