Andy Warhol first entered Berluti in 1962. Fascinated by the savoir-faire of the Maison, he ordered a pair of loafers from Talbinio Berluti, but Olga secretly undertook to make another pair of shoes from the hides she could find.She designed a truly modernist pair of loafers, but the hide she used had a flaw: a large vein running through the apron of one shoe. Olga explained to him that this pair was not like any other, and that the leather she had selected came from a “subversive” cow that liked to scratch herself on barbed wire. Andy Warhol understood immediately that this uncommon element made his pair of shoes completely unique. He loved the surreal nature of the plan, saying that, "from now on, I only want shoes made from the hides of subversive cows". This style was avant-garde in 1962, and still looks completely contemporary today, remaining a symbol of Maison Berluti visionary creativity. Later reworked with the evolutions of the Maison collections and lasts, the Andy loafer is an emblematic Berluti shoe.
