Berluti, the Parisian ready-to-wear house and shoemaker founded in 1895, has opened a new flagship in the heart of Monte Carlo, next to its two great icons: Hôtel de Paris and the Place du Casino. This is the very first Berluti store to open in Monaco, and the second one on the Riviera.
The 85 square-metre space, spread across two floors, is a world of quiet luxury and timeless masculine charm. A matte effect brings a modern twist to a traditional herringbone-pattern wooden floor. Texture play is present everywhere, from the beige walls with a natural stone finish to the lacquered shelves and frames, the soft carpets, the glass tables and the leather-bound cabinets.
The ground floor features an ample selection of shoes, leather goods and accessories. Its focal point is the wall lined with bottles that are filled with the secret tinctures used for more than a century to create Berluti’s iconic leather patina. There is a marble and leather bar counter and three leather bar stools. Two classic club armchairs sitting on the footwear corner provide the ideal spot for trying on shoes.
The first floor holds a private salon complete with designer furniture, including a Christophe Delcourt Hug sofa, armchairs by Marcel Wanders and a Gallotti & Radice floor lamp. With all of the above, clients are offered splendid views of Monaco through its glass façade.
