Haider Ackermann’s Debut Berluti Collection Lands in Los Angeles


On September 5th, Berluti opened its first store in Beverly Hills, featuring the debut collection by Haider Ackermann, the brand’s new creative director, and followed the shindig with a private party in partnership with W at the house of art-collector Eurgenio Lopez. Last January in Paris, Ackermann’s first collection for the menswear label featured strong statements presented in a minimal setting, with models dressed in lambskin bombers with contrasting shearling collars and crushed-velvet suits worn cavalierly over singlets. Narrow rocker boots and leather ­guitar cases that models slung over their shoulders were contrasted with a parade of impeccable leather and croc bags. “With Berluti, I’m clashing the idea of the brilliant, accomplished man in a tuxedo with the relaxed young dude in a parka,” Ackermann said. Here, take a look at the best moments from Ackermann’s West Coast berth with Berluti.
