S ince its creation in 1895, Berluti has never ceased to challenge the boundaries of craftsmanship and reinvent the rules of style. As the legendary shoe and leather brand opens a new chapter in its history, this spring, Sotheby’s will host an exclusive online auction celebrating Berluti’s heritage and unique savoir-faire. Berluti: The Art of Craftsmanship will present an arresting selection of bespoke pieces.

PORSCHE TARGA BERLUTI
BERLUTI, PORSCHE, BAG AND DRIVING SHOES. Estimate €175,000–225,000. BRUNO DES GAYETS/NIKOJA

The 14-lot sale will be spearheaded by a unique Porsche 911 Targa 2.4L. The interior of this legendary car is the first to be fully customised with a beautiful, patinated leather interior from Berluti. All work has been performed in France with the combined savoir-faire of Berluti’s colourists and an expert upholsterer. This one of a kind sports car comes to its new owner with a pair of driving shoes and a weekend bag, essentials for all car enthusiasts.

Other highlights include a Triumph motorcycle, four unique Hublot watches and luxury items signed by football stars Didier Drogba and Paul Pogba, as well as super-model and philanthropist Natalia Vodianova.

TRIUMPH MECATWIN BERLUTI
BERLUTI, TRIUMPH MOTORCYCLE, HELMET AND BOOTS. Estimate €30,000–50,000. BRUNO DES GAYETS/NIKOJA

The bike is an exclusive creation from the Mecatwin workshop for Berluti. It is based on the mechanical foundation of a Triumph Bonneville T120. Inspired by the timeless elegance of classic biking, the bike was created as part of Berluti’s “Off the Road” collection and will be offered together with two accessories from the same line: a leather-sheathed helmet and a pair of biker boots in brown calf leather.

Classic Fusion Berluti Scritto Nero Kaviar King Gold
HUBLOT, CLASSIC FUSION CHRONOGRAPH 45MM – KING GOLD, UNIQUE PIECE, “Berluti Scritto Nero Caviar”. Estimate €25,000–30,000. rs.solutions/HUBLOT

The watches encapsulate the powerful combination of Berluti’s bespoke expertise in leather and Hublot’s mastery of metals. Here, two bold Houses which define trends without ever betraying the rules of elegance, assert their influence on gentlemen’s fashion with originality and personality. The Classic Fusion Berluti 45 mm is a unique piece. It fuses the vibrant colour of the nero caviar patina of the Venezia Scritto with the sharp modernity of titanium and king gold.

Commenting on the forthcoming sale, Noah Wunsh, Sotheby’s Global Head of E-commerce, said: “For well over a century, Berluti has been synonymous with the art of bespoke and craftsmanship. These two criteria are now driving the luxury industry more than ever. We are therefore delighted to partner with Berluti on this exclusive sale which provides a unique opportunity to acquire emblematic collector items and support important charitable initiatives.”
