“Berluti’s Fall/Winter 2018 Pre-Collection by Haider Ackermann is an exercise in quietness and sartorial serenity: devoid of all distraction and visible ornament, clothes have a way of unveiling their artisanal know-how, clean architecture, hidden details and rich natural textures. Crisp outerwear, in particular, becomes the season’s key piece. An unstructured cashmere and wool coat in frosty shades of grey makes a statement when worn with a matching cashmere tailored jogger. A berry-colored calfskin suede jacket brings a flash of color to an otherwise understated black chunky jumper. An earthy wool gabardine coat breaks down its apparent simplicity with finishing touches including lambskin pipings, a calf leather under collar and buffalo horn buttons. And an aviator jacket – one of the most iconic styles in the Berluti wardrobe, this season available in tones of caramel and eclipse – is embellished with a shearling collar. Denim stays timeless, with an indigo classic fit, making only a concession to a calfskin belt. Pureness is also at the heart of the accessories, which include entirely seamless variations on the “Alessandro” shoe – a bootmaking feat – and a Venezia leather backpack stripped down to its essential lines and curves. Proof that within simplicity lies true luxury.“
