In the male-dominated world of shoemaking, Olga Berluti—of her namesake company Berluti (212.439.6400, www.berluti.com)—is as much an anomaly as the fetching footwear that she creates from her Paris atelier. Her worldly interests in art and culture are often expressed in Berluti’s highly original shoe designs, which include lace-ups finished with colorful, oil-based dyes; burnt-leather slip-ons with trompe l’oeil overstitching; and new “tattooed” loafers that flaunt a design of the customer’s choice.
