Haider Ackermann's Berluti has arrived: The bomber jacket to hold on to for life

We dare you to slip one on

Berluti's new era takes flight

As the temperature continues to rise, we tuck away our coats in lieu of an impending summer. In its place, an ounce of warmth filtering through the crisp, spring breeze — bringing with it an exhilaration surmounting the sartorial joy derived from winter layering.

Then in comes Berluti. A Berluti recently revitalised by one of fashion's mavericks on the rise. A Berluti that remains unparalleled in its bedrock of craft and construction, but imbued with the rich brushstrokes of Haider Ackermann's rebellious vision. A Berluti that will trigger any rational man to give up the warmth of summer for the dead of winter. 

Making his entrance with FW17's headlining jacket rooted in military origins, the Berluti Bomber is for one, an investment that shakes up any gent's repertoire. But beyond that, its virtues allow the everyman to come into his own chutzpah; the chemistry of its luxurious fabrication, that deep dapper hue, form an instant boost to one's self-esteem. Go on, slip one on in a rakish velvet, buttery lambskin or understated nubuck — we wager that this is the jacket that'll pay its dues for a lifetime to come. 

The Berluti Bomber is available at Berluti flagship stores in France (Faubourg St-Honoré, Paris), United Kingdom (Harrods, London), United States (Madison Avenue, New York), China (China World, Beijing), South Korea (Galleria, Seoul), and Japan (Ginza, Tokyo).

Available from July 2017 in Singapore.
