PARIS, 2015-12-22 — /EPR Retail News/ — Berluti is celebrating the 120th anniversary of the shoemaker’s founding with the publication of its first book, entitled At Their Feet, an ode to iconic shoes and the creative talents who wore them.

Loafers, slip-ons, boots or Oxfords … The models created by Berluti since 1895 set the standard in luxury footwear, earning them a loyal following among artists. To fête 120 years of shoemaking savoir-faire and the artists who wore its shoes, Berluti has published a strikingly original book entitled At Their Feet.

Showcased by photographer Erwan Frottin, the shoes and their stories are recounted through the artists who brought them to life, including Andy Warhol, Patti Smith, Yves Saint Laurent, Greta Garbo, Jean Cocteau and other illustrious customers who embodied Berluti elegance. Designed and illustrated by the creative director duo M/M (Mathias Augustyniak and Michael Amzalag), the book includes quotes from the artists and texts by American author Glenn O’Brien, an expert in fashion and lifestyle.

The limited edition of 200 numbered copies went on sale on December 15th. The Venezia leather cover can be customized with a distinctive patina, tattoos or initials. Both the limited edition and a classic edition are available at Berluti flagship stores.
