It’s hard to imagine a better match at this moment than Trussardi and Pitti Immagine Uomo. The trade fair needs to strike a balance, maintaining a modern edge while respecting its classical Italian roots. As Pitti’s guest designer brand, unveiling its fall men’s collection on a Florence runway on January 12, Trussardi delivers on both counts: heritage and high fashion.
And it does so in a big year for the Italian luxury brand. Founded by Dante Trussardi in 1911 as a glove manufacturer just outside Milan, Trussardi is celebrating its centennial in a growth mode. It now spans a multitude of product categories—from food to fashion—with some 440 sales points worldwide. In 2010, it opened 16 stores, including a Trussardi 1911 boutique in Porto Cervo, Italy, as well as six Tru Trussardi stores and nine TJ Trussardi Jeans stores in countries from Poland to China.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
