Trussardi Spring Summer Collection 2014 in Milan (with interview)
Trussardi takes us on a road-trip, organised for the first time by gaia trussardi. after her return to the forefront in june for the men’s line, daughter of the late nicola trussardi and granddaughter of the label’s founder dante trussardi, she takes command of women’s fashion. leather, the italian fashion house’s signature material, is rendered completely light, in the spirit of an urban cowboy. this lightness is also found in long, organza tunics with python print on each side and in outfits made of crepe silk. the sartorial side is present in the intensely coloured suits, matching wide-legged trousers with an ultra-short jacket that hints at the body’s curves. white and ivory open this collection giving way to a more somber atmosphere with a totally black look, stetson included. overalls worn next to the skin, bandeau-top and short shorts in python complete the wardrobe for gaia trussardi’s mysterious women’s collection inspired by the films of david lynch.
it’s a very edgy elegance, very mysterious, like the david lynch women who were glamorous and mysterious at the same time but it’s a positive mysteriousness. she travels around in her car and she wears long skirts, cropped jumpers where you can see the tummy and over masculine tailor-made jackets, and she steals from the country culture; some cowboy elements but they are translated in a very luxurious way. in the summer, it is very easy to work with leather nowadays because you can make it very, very thin and the secret is to use the highest quality leather, very matt and soft. python is important all over the collection, so you have actual python, extra shiny in white and red and then it’s matt in the white and cream colours and it’s printed in organza so it gives the idea of transparency and on silk.
