Italian fashion brand Berluti and renowned manufacturer of prestigious cars Ferrari, created a limited line of shoes that perfectly match the top gentleman.
Many celebrities gathered at a cocktail at the Berluti store on Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré during the Paris Fashion Week, as Berluti’s general manager, Antoine Arnault and John Elkann, Ferrari president, hosted the event in honor of launching a new line of shoes.
The collection consists of a slip on model, Oxford shoes and Chelsea boots. All three models represent the classic features of the Berluti gentleman, and include signature silhouettes and seams inspired by the Ferrari car.
With its pernicious design and incredible comfort, Ferrari Limited Edition synchronizes Ferrari’s legacy and Berluti’s footwear experience, and marks a long-standing friendship between Arnault and Elkann.
“These are the lightest shoes that Berluti has done ever. These are shoes which have real technology in them, with carbon fiber that is used for cars for driving. It’s a very special grip that you have on the sole and this is taking inspiration from the engine,” said Elkann.
“The idea is really to try and capture what was the gentleman driver back in the Sixties,” he added, noting the collection coincides with the release of Ferrari’s limited-edition Monza SP1 and SP2, inspired by vintage models but with modern technology.
Beginning in November, Berluti X Ferrari collection will be available in selected international stores ranging from $2,800 to $3,300 that cost Chelsea boots. Ferrari fans and car enthusiasts will be pleased that each model will have signature stitching and Ferrari Red piping detail in the heels, a trademark of the brand with the logo of the famous Prancing Horse.
