Devialet in Berluti

Words By: Sam Kessler

Devialet’s Phantom has a lot going for it; the speaker’s not only fitted with far more than its fair share of technical innovations, but the result is far more impressive than it has any right to be. It’s not just the quality of the sound that gets you but its impact – an impact that defies the Phantom’s modest size.

In fact, that size is probably the most important part of the Phantom. Not only does it stand at dramatic odds from the body of sound emanating from the speakers but it’s an asset in and of itself. Think of the systems comparable to what the Phantom offers; they’re not exactly what you’d call portable. Devialet’s flagship however can set sail wherever you care to take it with nothing more than a modest rucksack.

That said, the time and effort channelled into the Phantom by its makers, not to mention the fact that it’s still a valuable piece of equipment, means that you might want to keep it in something a little better than a bag. Even Devialet’s own custom-fitted Cocoon bag might not be enough if, say, you opted for the top of the line Phantom gold. Step in Berluti.

Berluti leather is legendary. We mean that in the truest sense; whispers of burnishing their shoes by moonlight in vintage champagne may even have a grain of truth to them. Even on a less grandiose sense, the leather is simply beautiful, especially when they show that signature Berluti Burnish. Their own take on the Devialet Cocoon does that admirably.

This is put simply the Rolls-Royce of carry cases and not simply because the two share a model; the marque in fact would long to get their hands on leather this good. Looking like the most luxurious bowling ball bag in the world, the tobacco leather oozes old world sophistication. The unique painted texture can be seen most clearly on the outline of the speaker itself, the curves highlighting the patina – something individual to each example of the Cocoon.

It might seem an extreme level of audiophilic dedication to clothe your Phantom in Berluti but why not? You already have the finest portable speaker in the world so why not dress it in the finest leather to match? At the very least consider the Devialet Cocoon an exclusive addition to your luggage; just one with a very specific purpose in mind.

Needless to say there will be strictly limited numbers of Berluti’s case – the maison is all about quality, not quantity – and only from certain outlets. If you’re interested in adding that finishing touch to your audio experience however, contact your personal shopper below.
