Berluti is a company that manufactures and retails a very exclusive luxury brand of shoes and boots solely for men. It is known for its unique leather finishing. It also makes and sells a line of leather goods such as belts, bags, and wallets with similar finish.
It is based in Paris on the rue Marbeuf. It was founded in 1895 by Italian Alessandro Berluti and is now run by Olga Squeri (also known as Olga Berluti). The LVMH group acquired Berluti in 1993. The brand has very limited distribution—in the US it can only be found at their New York and Miami stores, while in Europe it is limited to seven Berluti boutiques, along with an additional six in the Middle East and 25 in Asia.
Berluti launched its first prêt-à-porter collections in 2012, and acquired prestige Paris tailor Arny's the same year.
Berluti is headed since 2012 by LVMH's CEO Bernard Arnault's son, Antoine Arnault.
