Runway Review: Trussardi Spring 2015

Leather is not just for autumn and winter anymore. After Trussardi’s show in Milan yesterday it is a “dovere” in every summer closet. It was Gaia Trussardi’s third season at the front of her family company and she bet everything on leather, savoir faire, experimentation and modernity, and won big.

Imagine a dynamic sophisticated woman who admires the timeless elegance of athletes, that rejects the contemporary culture of absolute virtuality and the disconnection between mind and body. Gaia presented a sharp, sleek and graphic collection for women of today: free of excess. Sportswear inspired the entire collection and was transformed into tank tops, shorts, miniskirts and form fitting high waist trousers that give the sense of movement.

The rest of the collection was a walk around Italian sportswear with dresses, coats and menswear-style suits melted in a rainbow of white, denim blue, tan with notes of pistachio and burgundy.

The Trussardi ever-present leather for next season collection came in nappa, elaphe, ostrich skin and perforated suede, along with a sprinkling of cotton and denim were also some of their spring-summer materials.
