BERLUTI X BANG & OLUFSEN COLLECTION LAUNCHED

Parisian fashion house Berluti and Danish audio brand Bang & Olufsen have collaborated for a limited-edition collection of products, celebrating ‘savoir-faire’ and lifestyle, the Berluti x Bang & Olufsen collection.

BERLUTI X BANG & OLUFSEN COLLECTION

The Berluti x Bang & Olufsen Collection collaboration honours the heritage and craftsmanship associated with both ‘Maisons’ and combines some of Bang & Olufsen’s products with Berluti’s emblematic Venezia leather, patinated by hand, to create six unique pieces.

For urban travellers and digital nomads, Beosound A1 2nd Gen Berluti Edition, Beoplay H95 Berluti Edition, and Berluti’s Sound Pouch are created to carry on the go, completed by the addition of Beosound Balance Berluti Edition. Two made-to-order home products, Beovision Harmony and Beolab 90, add the finishing touch to the collection which complements Berluti’s existing selection of lifestyle and home objects while going deeper into the brand’s technology offering.

BERLUTI

Berluti was established in Paris in 1895 and has been built by four generations of shoemakers. In 2005 fine leather goods were introduced and, in 2011, a complete clothing collection. A unique bespoke service from head to toe is now available through Berluti’s workshops in rue Marbeuf and rue de Sèvres. Berluti now has over 60 stores worldwide.

Berluti declares “Berluti and Bang & Olufsen are a perfect match, bringing together a common passion for excellence. Bang & Olufsen’s cutting-edge philosophy, technological innovation and state-of-the-art design run parallel to the Maison’s focus on craftsmanship and to its continually evolving lifestyle collection.”

BANG & OLUFSEN

“For nearly a century, Bang & Olufsen has been pushing the boundaries of audio technology and the company continues to sit at the forefront of acoustic innovation. Together with Berluti, we are bringing the best of artisanship to the fore with our expertise in sound and design, and Berluti’s knowledge in leather craftsmanship to create a truly remarkable collection”, says Christoffer Poulsen, SVP of Product Management & Brand Partnering at Bang & Olufsen.

Bang & Olufsen’s home speaker is inspired by interior objects and has a soft cylindrical silhouette featuring a hidden touch interface that lights up when being approached.

Berluti has created a dedicated pouch that can comfortably and compactly fit either the Beosound A1 speaker or the Beoplay H95 headphones.

Beolab 90 Berluti Edition: £97,000

B&O says that the Beolab 90 is  “the most powerful sound experience Bang & Olufsen has ever created, featuring 8,200 watts of musical power”. Beolab 90 adapts to its surroundings and preferred listening modes. From the position and orientation of the drivers to the placement of the cooling fins, everything is shaped to optimise performance. The base of the aluminium speaker is customised with Berluti’s Venezia leather – with a TDM Intenso patina to create a bold design statement designed to match the Beovision Harmony Berluti Edition.

Beovision Harmony Berluti Edition: £32,800

Originally unveiled at Milan Design Week in 2019 as a combination of art and technology. When not in use, the 77-inch TV folds down into a sculptural piece of art.
