A visit by Andy Warhol to her family’s Parisian shoe shop in 1962 prompted the then 17-year-old Olga Berluti to design and craft a loafer in the artist’s honor. The shoe model, which featured a distinctively elongated shape, became a favorite of Warhol and many of the brand’s other clients. The Berluti Andy Masque Venezia Leather Loafers (berluti.com) are a new variation on the original design. Priced at $2,300, the shoes are made with Berluti’s signature Venezia leather, which has a painterly patina.
