Style in the name of Beretta A refined art : the architect of fashion Not only do I dress the body, I also dress the soul. I like the essential garment. It is mainly based on overclothes the architecture of which seems to me paramount. Cloaks and raincoats, inside out sheepskins, reefers and jackets represent the most famous expression of my style. I"m looking for the right balance, giving a personal touch to every single garment even when it regards trapezoidal cuff straps. The wide raglan or kimono like sleeves. Edge to edge linings in cotton or other yarns. The leather braid stitched on the coats. Press studs have widely been used in couture accessories since but still are the marks made by Beretta.
