I have a real love/hate with Berluti, especially†after seeing this photo which is nearly so bad I feel like vomiting. All jokes aside, it is really just sad to me at what lengths designer’s/people/labels will go to create absurd articles of clothing that other gullible individuals deem as stylish because said brand made it. It’s like Louboutin’s shoes with spikes. I mean, I understand fashion and doing daring things to create an idea/look/lifestyle, but then often times it goes way beyond fashion and simply becomes down-right ridiculous and disgusting. And what kills me is the people that feed into this because it is a ‘designer’ label and thus the cycle of garbage perpetuates.
I never really thought that Berluti should go into clothes anyway as I believe that a brand should stick to its core values and ideas and not over offer themselves in too many articles of product, but this really took the cake when they attempted to make a suit from leather and then put cherry on top with the zippers at the bottom. It’s quite mind-boggling really. And I feel sorry for the person that spends a shit load of money buying this and thinking that it is stylish. Because it is not. It’s simply over the top. I at least appreciate the patina but the rest is ridiculous. And if you look closely, what are those monstrosities on the feet? Asymmetrical†weapons of fashion destruction by the looks of it.
Come on Berluti, you guys were founded on amazing footwear and design, but this is simply overboard. Stick to shoes, and the beautiful ones at that!
