Trussardi Spring/Summer 2017 Collection Delivers ‘Elegantly Pop’

Chromatically pleasing and aesthetically coherent, the newest Trussardi spring/summer 2017 collection is filled with all of next summer’s must-have essentials, from pink-colored total outfits to rompers and figures that enhance the waistlines. For her new line-up, presented during Milan Fashion Week, creative director Gaia Trussardi made us travel back to the Eighties, immersing herself into the shimmering bright colors, structured lines and whimsical patterns this decade is so famous for.

To better mix Trussardi’s signature aesthetics with the exaggerated lines of the Eighties, Gaia Trussardi focused on a harmoniously balanced mix of casual-chic figures and bold colors, refining everything with the help of shimmery fabrics and metallic leather.

Another great source of inspiration for this collection served the deep interconnections fashion and subcultures have always shared with each other, with the latter often acting as fashion’s main source of inspiration.

The Eighties, which both musically and artistically-speaking overwhelmed the society with timeless reminiscences, particularly satisfied Gaia Trussardi’s thirst for fashion, as her “Elegantly Pop” collection, along with the song she wrote for the runway show, exuded everything that is Eighties influenced.

“Lady / She’s a baby / Elegantly pop,” sincerely sang Trussardi’s soundtrack, while ultra-feminine pencil skirts, sinuous figures and deep, plunging-V necklines were presented to the Milanese public.

To further embody the whole Eighties motif, Gaia Trussardi served classic silhouettes yet reinvented through a bolder filter, with Schiaparelli pink, blue, purple and red dominating the scene. Gold and silver, of course, had their time to shine too, and got utilized to revamp the most traditional, urban-chic elegant proposals. Athleisure-inspired staples went through the exact same intervention, while a soft, mermaid green got contrastingly used to light up the sultriest staples.

Although while browsing through the collection we easily get the impression that Gaia Trussardi was all about exaggerated, Eighties-inspired futuristic staples, the Trussardi spring/summer 2017 collection actually went heavy on standard Trussardi styles too, with frilly, earthy-toned outfits almost fading among the outstanding shimmery proposals.

Few workwear looks also made their appearance throughout the runway show, yet getting quickly surpassed by the collection’s menswear-inspired, clean-cut suits.

Retro-futurism, postmodernism and pop art – although she did mention all of these patterns being at the core of the Trussardi spring/summer 2017 collection, it is really hard to tell them apart throughout the line-up, as she truly managed to blend in everything together with an artisanal care we yet had to see.

This process and artistic choice did not, however, leave everyone pleased. Mixed criticism arose from this show, with many fashion enthusiasts, journalists and bloggers still debating over the line-up and runway show’s potential success.
