With Berluti announced a collaboration with the BWT Alpine F1 Team. Thus, the Parisian Maison was established as Alpine Elegance Partner. This is the latest instance in Berluti’s history of fantastic collaborations, which have long been part of the Maison’s DNA. The partnership debuted during the Miami Grand Prix on May 8, and will resume at the Monaco Grand Prix on May 29 and later this year. Around the race’s dates, Berluti clients will be able to meet the BWT Alpine F1 team at local Berluti stores. Selected clients will also have exceptional access to the venue paddocks and backstage, for a truly one-of-a-kind experience.
Alpine's core values of passion, innovation, and excellence collide with Berluti's focus on craftsmanship, know-how, and cutting-edge technique in a new partnership in which Berluti will provide elegance kits to the BWT Alpine F1 Team drivers and executive team as it begins its second Formula One season. Berluti is a symbol of masculine elegance that offers a complete wardrobe for modern men.
Fernando Alonso, a two-time Formula One World Drivers' Champion, and Esteban Ocon, who won his first Formula One race in the 2021 Hungarian Grand Prix, worn Berluti clothing on special occasions, as will the Executive team. The package included a formal suit and an informal jeans, embroidered shirt, and cashmere blazer combo, as well as accessories and shoes such as the new Eden lace-up, the classic Playtime sneaker, and the renowned Alessandro lace-up court shoe, all of which have an Alpine-inspired blue patina.
“It’s a real pleasure for BWT Alpine F1 Team to enter a partnership with such an iconic fashion brand in Berluti. Formula 1 is the pinnacle of motorsport, filled with history, prestige and huge global interest, which makes this partnership with Berluti so special as we match our shared values by combining Formula 1 with luxury fashion. As the team’s Elegance Partner, we’re looking forward to taking the next step with Berluti from this weekend’s Miami Grand Prix where the drivers and Executive management team will showcase their excellent range of high-end clothing. The team’s image is held in high regard and it’s important we maintain that view not only on-track but also off-track in the fashion stakes,” said Laurent Rossi, CEO of Alpine.
Berluti has also handmade a made-to-measure Venezia leather container containing the team's steering wheels, which has a blue patina. This one-of-a-kind object is a first for Berluti and Formula 1.
“We are thrilled to have been introduced to the world of Formula 1, one of the most extreme, demanding, historical and prestigious sports. And to do so by teaming up with the legendary BWT Alpine F1 team makes complete sense for Berluti: we both have an established heritage, we both have our own manufactures, and we are both driven by a consistent exigency between timeless know-how and innovation. Lifestyle offering has long been among Berluti’s core values and expanding it into this partnership with BWT Alpine Formula 1 as their Elegance partner felt like a natural step.,“ said Antoine Arnault, CEO of Berluti.
