After flying into the Nice airport, one of the best ways to arrive quickly and stylishly to Monaco is by helicopter. In just seven minutes you’re there, avoiding traffic while taking in scenic views from above the Mediterranean Sea. As you may have caught on while reading my previous stories, one of my favorite brands to sport while traveling is Berluti.
The brand offers everything an elegant gentleman could need, from classic footwear and contemporary sneakers to clothing from the ready-to-wear collection and stunning leathers goods. Known for their timeless and elegant style, each piece in Berluti’s collection is crafted from the finest of materials.
Today I took a helicopter to Monaco and wanted to be as comfortable as possible, so I picked out a pair of Playtime Berluti sneakers with a colorful finish of red, white and blue accents. White pants add to that summertime look and the stunning navy blue jacket with red details inside the sleeves play off the design of the shoes.
Since the sky and sea are the perfect shade of deep blue today, I took advantage of this spot on the platform above the water where a blue Monacair helicopter was waiting and took a few photos. I’m carrying a few important business documents with me, so I decided to pack everything in to the Deux Jours briefcase.
Made from high-quality Venezia Leather, it’s a must-have for every businessman since it’s the perfect lightweight bag for a one- or two-day trip. What’s interesting about this one, though, is the double-face color scheme: one side is navy blue and the other side is light blue.
For the second half of the day, I wanted to take a breather from work and head for a hike above Monte-Carlo on a trail overlooking the sea, with the entire French Riviera sweeping out on my right side and Monaco to my left.
For this adventure, I went for an all-white Berluti look that’s light, classic and easy to wear, but still effortlessly elegant even while hiking. On my feet I’m sporting white Playfield sneakers, which are extremely strong and can go with almost any style or situation. White pants and a classic white shirt keep the ensemble looking comfortable and classy. The pièce de résistance for this little adventure, however, is the Berluti backpack.
It reminds me of when I was a child going to school, crafted from the brand’s characteristic brown leather with a ton of practical space for all of my daily essentials. I can also use it when I’m in town so it doubles as a stylish urban carryall. I walk carefully from one rock to another to admire the principality of Monte-Carlo from the edge. From the top you can see the entire country in just a single shot, and it’s stunning.
The sun is going down in the sky and I have to say goodbye and head to another adventure. I’ll see you soon!
