Berluti B-Volute Loafer, a Gentleman’s New Staple

Berluti B-Volute Loafer, a Gentleman’s New Staple

For Spring 2024, Berluti is expanding its leather goods and shoes collection with the brand new B-Volute line. Originally unveiled in the mid-1990s as part of the belt collection, the B-Volute design draws inspiration from the ornate iron staircase found in Berluti’s historic Rue Marbeuf store. Crafted with metallic hardware blending sharp lines and two curved forms symbolizing a mirrored reflection of the letter B, this design epitomises Berluti’s distinctive sartorial attitude.

The motif is now reinterpreted in order to create a brag lock and a loafer saddle strap, combined with a supple grained leather. That combination showcases the Maison’s know-how at its finest. One of the pieces that caught our eyes the most is the B-Volute Leather Loafer, the Maison’s new buckle loafer style.

The loafer showcases Berluti’s mastery in boot-making with its grained leather, treated using a unique technique where the surface is polished to unveil a contrasting colour beneath. Enhanced with a cushioned inner heel and a flexible buckle, the loafer not only offers exceptional comfort, but also stands as an essential in men’s wardrobes, thanks to its B-Volute-shaped saddle strap.

No wonder the loafer is now popular amongst men around the globe, including Australian-Japanese actor Sen Mitsuji, British lifestyle influencer Ali Gordon, London-based fashion influencer Rahi Chadda, and Korean actor Oh Jin Seok.

Sen Mitsuji was channelling a city gentleman look while wearing the Berluti B-Volute Leather Loafer in Nero.

Oh Jin Seok was also spotted wearing the Nero version of the loafer, along with the Echo Leather Belt and the Spirale Leather Messenger Bag from the same line.

Ali Gordon, who is famous for his impeccable fashion style, opted for the B-Volute Leather Loafer in Mattone.

Lastly, Rahi Chadda wore the B-Volute Leather Loafer in Kaki as he enjoys his time at the park
