Urban club

Berluti this season was a garden party. Quite literally, and yet the clothes themselves seemed to further this idea even more so than the greenery surrounding the runway.

The men who emerged were a mixture of youthful and mature, an intelligent reflection of the house’s clientele. Designer Alessandro Sartori knows that there’s more to his audience than a baby-faced image – they want gentleman’s club worthy clothes, worldly and finely tailored.

The palette focused on rich shades of camel and khaki, a strain of soft leather coats and jackets adding depth to the light feel of safari cuts and relaxed styling. Leather sneakers were a clever addition: this is a house steeped in the classic, progressed by the urban.
