The Berluti Fall 2012 collection is a first from the iconic shoemaker and shows a refreshingly classic and refined take on menswear. The line, debuted in Paris, was presented in a tableau-style show on adult men aged 25 to 72, who read leather-bound books, played chess and gathered around a dramatic, Last Supper-worthy table laid out for a feast. The collection reflected this stark shift from the norm, which usually means teenaged boys walking down a runway in less-wearable accessories.

Berluti, a subsidiary of LVMH, is now at the helm of designer Alessandro Sartori, handpicked by Antoine Arnault. The maturity of the models in the Berluti Fall 2012 show was emulated in the standard, well-tailored looks by Sartori that contrast the "extremist" looks upon which other menswear collections have thrived.
