There’s nothing we love more than an unexpected partnership, especially when the worlds of fashion and tech meet.

The latest entrant to the fold is Berluti, which has unveiled limited-edition products in collaboration with Danish luxury audio brand Bang & Olufsen. For audiophiles and fashionistas alike, the collection honours the heritage and craftsmanship associated with both Maisons — celebrating savoir-faire and lifestyle. It melds some of Bang & Olufsen’s most iconic products with Berluti’s emblematic Venezia leather, patinated by hand.

“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,” said Christoffer Poulsen, SVP of Product Management & Brand Partnering at Bang & Olufsen. “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.”

Berluti added, “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.”
