Sports casual goes ultra-luxe in a colourful but clean collection of soft leather, knitwear and technical fabrics. In a relay of retro references, flared suede trouser suits reminiscent of a super-luxe Starsky & Hutch were mixed with femme fatale accents, like neck-ties and knitted tank tops a la Faye Dunaway in Bonnie and Clyde.
Back in 1988, Trussardi outfitted the Italian Olympic team, and this season creative director Gaia Trussardi found herself inspired by “the timeless elegance of athletes” – an influence felt in the collection's unexpected mix of athletic shapes and high-end materials. Tank tops, mini skirts, sports jackets and jumpsuits were combined with white and tan leather car coats, crisp cocoon-cut white shirts, padlock necklaces and two-tone side wing sunglasses.
Like a library of luxury skins, Trussardi presented red leather trouser suits, biker jackets in cerise and pistachio suede, crocodile skin skirt suits, ostrich and nappa leather coats and perforated accessories.
