Sotheby’s is delighted to present a ground breaking auction celebrating Berluti’s technical skill and creative flair through the creation of truly magnificent, bespoke pieces. Staying true to the Maison’s artisan routes, Berluti continues to challenge the boundaries of craftsmanship and to transform the rules of style with every chapter of its history.
In Berluti: The Art of Craftsmanship* Sotheby’s has hand selected items which pay tribute to the pillars of Berluti’s heritage and proficiency, specifically the distinct hand-crafted Berluti patina and the exclusive Venezia leather, both introduced by Olga Berluti in the 1980s. The sale offers collectors a unique opportunity to acquire incredibly rare pieces from landmark moments throughout the brand’s history.
The standout lot is a Porsche 911 from 1973, the first car ever to be fully customised in an exclusive Berluti patinated leather interior. Other items include a set of beach accessories signed by Natalia Vodianova, to benefit her charity Naked Heart Foundation.
The auction will be held exclusively online between 24 April and 7 May, with the full exhibition on view at Sotheby’s Paris premises.
