If given the opportunity, I'd want to be the first one to distribute --- and open a Berluti store in US.
Berluti stores are all company owned. They are now owned by LVMH, which opens its own stores for virtually all the brands they own (e.g, Thomas Pink, Vuitton, Loewe).
I will then post pictures of shoes from all the other designers who had taken designs from Berluti ....
Funny story. A few years ago, Berluti actually sued Gucci for making a knock-off of a particular Berluti stye (a slip-on/loafer with a series of perforations all around the perimeter of the forefoot). This was apparently due to the rivalry/hatred between LVMH's controlling shareholder (BERNARD ARNAULT) and that of PPR (Francois Pinault), who managed to outmaneuver LVMH to gain control of Gucci. After this acquisition, Gucci came out with this knock-off style, and Berluti/LVMH sued. I think Gucci agreed to remove this style from the market.
