In order to maintain our commitment to both savoir-faire and innovation we have decided to let Berluti lead its own rhythm and give freedom to its presentation schedule. I would personally like to thank Kris, who throughout his journey within the LVMH Group has shown remarkable talent in the world of menswear. He has brought his own vision to Berluti, particularly by integrating new codes into its signatures. – Alexandre Arnault

These 3 years at berluti have been extremely intense. Reinventing and reshaping the brand’s dna, its history and tradition, craft and luxury in a contemporary and creative manner was definitely a challenge, and all limitations and restrictions around covid didn’t help. So I want to express endless gratitude to my creative team for always delivering miracles, no matter what. You know what you did, how you had to do it, and you can be proud. I sure am proud of you, of us. While berluti will be taking a new approach to its collections and calendar, I feel grateful for all I have learned and look forward to what the future holds for me. Though I will be finishing some projects in coming weeks, I will not be presenting a new collection for the brand. Last week’s reveal of the “living apart together “ collection will be my last. – Kris Van Assche
