While it’s true that no other runway show during fashion week steals the spotlight quite as much as the mammoths of Dolce & Gabanna, Gucci, Versace, and Prada, there are other lesser known Italian designers worth knowing (and buying!). One of these is Trussardi, a brand whose ready-to-wear has been going on since the 1980s, and whose creative director, Gaia Trussardi is keeping the brand alive. The clothes made in linens, leathers, cotton and suede have an inherently Italian cool effortlessness belonging to the spring and summer.
From left: light creamy shades in a blazer and trouser fall relaxedly over the model, striking a balance between conservative and seductive comes a jumper with loose legs and an extra plunging v neckline, opposing textures come together in a look of powerful reds and baring skin.
From left: chic bohemian vibes are exuded in a look of baggy trousers with an almost bare chest covered only by an oversized vest and thin scarf, a suede jacket and skinny trousers take a strong stance against a sea of loose shapes, and a tailored red linen blazer is the final touch on a look.
Structured vests, whether long and oversized or short, were a major component in various looks and the perfect contrasting final touch to the loose shapes seen throughout the collection.
Paying homage to its roman catholic heritage, Trussardi added large gold and silver pendants of The Madonna (The Virgin Mary) to every look, something I look forward to get and wear on the upcoming season.
