To fête 120 years of shoemaking savoir-faire and the artists who wore its shoes, Berluti has published a strikingly original book entitled At Their Feet.
To mark the House’s 120th anniversary, Berluti, in collaboration with Éditions Rizzoli, has published its first book: At Their Feet, an ode to artists and their shoe inspirations, says LVMH-owned fashion house. The first Berluti book is highlighting 26 of our most emblematic customers.
Andy Warhol, Dean Martin, Patti Smith, Yves Saint Laurent, Zinedine Zidane. A few more? Brian Ferry, Greta Garbo, Maurizio Cattelan, Larry Clark, Jean Cocteau. What do they all have in common? Each of these talented artists, at one time or another, has walked in Berlutis.
In At Their Feet, shoes designed since 1895 for certain illustrious customers – twenty-six of them within these pages – are literally brought to life. In photographs by Erwan Frotin, they paint a picture of their respective owners and pay tribute to the savoir-faire of their maker.
Designed and illustrated by the creative directorial duo of M/M, At Their Feet is peppered with quotations from a palette of
personalities and boasts the writing of the no-less-famous American author Glenn O’Brien, an eloquent expert in art, fashion and pop culture.
The book is offered in a special limited edition of 200 numbered copies. The cover, in Venezia leather, may be customised upon
request with a patina, tattoos, initials, etc.
