Trussardi Fall/Winter 2015-2016 Collection – Milan Fashion Week

How lovely looks the Trussardi fall/winter 2015-2016 collection as it is walked out on the Milan Fashion Week runway by beautiful models. How positively enchanting are the leather pieces that some refer to as the “50 Shades of Leather” in jest. There is something so chic and sophisticated about the lines and the silhouettes, the cuts and the impeccable tailoring of each piece. Gaia Trussardi, the current creative director of the family owned business founded by Dante Trussardi in 1911, has admitted to her quasi-fetishist love for the leather and thus confirmed the reason as to why we are faced with such sumptuous pieces in the material. One of the opening pieces of the show was indeed a bustier in coarsely pebbled leather, complete with matching pants and V cut booties in shiny grey leather material. The pants had a high waist folded outwards at the waist, while they fell in military garb style to the ankle, pleated and with a pressed seam across the middle of the garment. The following leather skirt suit was just as captivating, with a black knit turtleneck worn underneath for added warmth, comfort and style, and Western style leather cowboy half-boots in black encasing the feet. The look was completed with a matching handbag in a beige hue.

From the stitching to the delicate nappa leather, Gaia Trussardi made it clear to the world that her grandfather had begun the business as a glove maker, and a very good one at that. Garments can turn from plain pieces to rather impressive works of art with the simplest of additions and manipulations of the material, including stitching. The Trussardi loves had been very well known, used by everyone from the British Royal Family to the military during wartime. The wartime theme was also played upon by the inclusion of factory worker jumpers, shearling aviator jackets and general trench coats that were indeed a fashionable alternative initially for the British soldiers in WWI.

The Trussardi woman for this season is a lot like Gaia Trussardi, one who doesn’t have the time to take a vacation, who works day and night to churn out pieces that will wow the public each season and who carries the weight of the family business on her shoulders along with her brother and sister, running the brand and caring for its future reputation. The futuristic heroine is envisioned by Gaia Trussardi to be one with no extra time, living in an urban settlement or even a ghost city, and wearing sleek but minimal leisurely cut dresses and tanks so that she looks amazing while still having it be perfectly utilitarian.

This time around, instead of focusing on the 1970s as was the idea at the beginning, the Trussardi fashions have centered more around the ‘80s, with the metallic finished leather copper skirts and spaghetti strap dresses really adding that touch of naughty to the whole of the collection without being overtly too sexy. The boots are certainly beautiful and covetable, while we can surely see ourselves donning the shiny leather skirts with a wide V-neck form fitting sweater tucked in, a matching leather handbag on our arms and out hair pulled back in the textures hairstyle sported by all the models along the collection, the lips painted boldly with a dark coppery coloring that really amplifies the rest of the features on the face.
