Discover BERLUTI Fall Winter 2021.22 Living apart together Menswear Collection, that explores the limitations of our moment in time, presented on April 8th, with a performance art installation staged digitally in Paris and in Shanghai. The collection was inspired by the works of painter Lev Khesin.
Film maker Antoine Asseraf directed the video presentation featuring models Craig Shimirimana, Geun Woo Lee, Jinwoo Jang, Jonas Glöer, Leon Dame, Lyul Im, Mahamadou Diaoune, and Mohamadou Diakhite. In charge of styling was Mauricio Nardi, with casting direction from Piergiorgio Del Moro. Choreography is work of Olivier Casamayou with show production from Etienne Russo, and creative direction by Yoann Lemoine.
“The symbiosis between the digital presentation format and the highly tactile nature of Lev Khesin’s artistic expression creates a dialogue between the palpable and the virtual: a search for the idea of human and material connection in the digital sphere. The need for a tangible and tactile reality is reflected in motifs, colours and textures informed by the work of Lev Khesin. Interpreted in garments and accessories, they create the foundation for a collection embodied by fluidity, adaptability, and the human hand. Subtly unstructured lines cut a soft and relaxed tailoring silhouette. It’s a feeling of comfort expressed in neo-suiting fusing traditional formal dress codes with those of the workwear and sportswear wardrobes, often carried out in double-face cashmere.” – from Berluti
