Berluti to open new store location at 9, rue du Faubourg-Saint-Honoré
“A Return to its Roots in Historic Parisian Neighborhood”
PARIS -- October 24, 2012
Berluti, bootmaker since 1895, plans to open its third store in Paris at 9,
rue du Faubourg-Saint-Honoré, in the second half of 2013.
Antoine Arnault,Chief Executive Officer of Berluti, said, «Our location on
the rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré marks an important milestone in the
development of our brand and will help further enhance its visibility and the
excitement around the work we are doing. It is also a return to the roots of
our brand, as the new store is only a few steps from the rue du Mont-Thabor
where Torello Berluti opened a store in 1928.»
Shoes, leather goods, ready-to-wear and accessories will be presented on three
floors, with more than five-hundred square metres (or approximately 5,400
square feet) of selling space. There will be a dedicated area as well for
bespoke shoes, which Berluti has created since 1895.
To support the continued strong development of its bespoke shoes business,
Berluti has strengthened its teams of craftsman through the acquisition of the
prestigious workshops of bootmaker Anthony Delos, who is one of the best
shoemakers in France, at 34 years old. His workshops have received the
distinction of «Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant» (or Company of Living
Heritage), reflecting the excellence for which they are known. The workshops
of Anthony Delos in the Rosiers-sur-Loire (Loire Valley) will become those for
bespoke shoes at Berluti.
