Trussardi 1911 Spring/Summer 2018

Trussardi 1911 Spring-Summer 2018

The head of the Trussardi’s creative division – Gaia Trussardi, did something that was first for the house. She combined the men’s and women’s spring lines on the runway, with a clear accent on the leather. The leather was house’s signature good, and now it is transferred onto the clothes as a main material. The inspiration behind the spring line, Gaia Trussardi found in traits that the city of Milan has as its identity. She focused on the city’s sense of adventure, diversity and the openness to it, creativity and international attitude. All these mentioned items might have been hard to spot into the collection with the single reference to Milan, but the main point was the urban pieces that were also practical. The motif that was used on the designs was with a flight reference like airplanes, parachutes and the famous Amelia Earhart.

The collection featured chic bombers, dresses that looked like airy parachute, shirts, shorts, jumpsuits with utility tailoring. There were also smart cut trenches that looked a lot like the aviator ones from back in the time. The most common fabric was leather and suede, but not on all designs. The most accented pieces were the skirts that were spliced with leather strips. The dresses had cutout backs that pointed to the sensuality of the collection, along with the shirts over bra tops. The collection had a young spirit, energetic, definitely something new for the house. The clothing was mainly oriented to everyday wear, but if paired smartly, it was appropriate as a nightwear too.

The leather gave the collection a whole different look which was not too girly and not too serious. The color palette was various, but somehow the olive green hue dominated throughout the collection. The flower print was present on the dresses and shirts, while bold orange color was monochromatic option for leather trenches and deep V-neck dress. The beige and lime also were a fresh addition to the jackets and trenches – a colorful and happy spring collection. The bags were also with a flight design – made from leather, short handles and additional longer straps. It truly was a collection that everyone wants to own at least one piece or a bag.
