I remember the first time I came across Berluti: it was their classic briefcase crafted from blue suede and leather that I saw in Hong Kong’s Harbour City shopping mall. This 48-Hour Venezia Leather Holdall bag from the classic French brand reminds me of that first impression – it exemplifies the beautiful craftsmanship and the attention to detail Berluti artisans are known for.
Drawing on their rich heritage of leather expertise, this spacious holdall bag is made from the brand’s signature Venezia calf hide developed exclusively for Berluti. Coloured using a mixture of mineral and vegetable tanning methods, the bag will develop a patina over time which means it will age gracefully with use.
The un-coated finish also means the leather is incredibly supple, giving it a soft, classic structure unlike the boxy design fashion-forward brands tend to adopt. The expandable sides and locks make it practical to hold enough clothes and gadgets for a weekend getaway.
