Trussardi AW14

Anna Karina inspires a band of outsiders in lame jumpsuits, brogues and blood red lipstick

TextEmma WymanPhotographyPaolo Musa

Initial reaction:

A band of outsiders: amid the Milanese glamour comes the insouciant soul in scrunched socks and brogues, sweat pants and blazers, and black leather.


“Unconventional women” – specifically Anna Karina in Jean Luc Godard’s 1964 French new wave film Bande à Part. All men’s grey wool sweaters, kilts and cropped fringe.

How they wore it:

A little disheveled. Shimmering shirts tucked unevenly into wool sweatpants, worn with a masculine wool blazer, the sleeves of a soft grey leather dress pushed roughly right up above the elbows, and a coarse wool knit with platinum, glitter tailoring. Blood red lips added a touch of femininity.

Stand out look:

A silver lame jumpsuit with black polo shirt collar and crest badge, defining the devil-may-care Trussardi girl.


Unfitted and boyish with no emphasis on curves – yet still sensual. The opening black leather dress, with its high halter neck, slightly loose fit, and fluted calf-length hem felt playful and sexy, not sordid. Trousers came wide at the hips, and coats and bombers were boxy and masculine.
