For his second women’s collection at Trussardi, Umit Benan Sahin offered functional, utilitarian looks heavy on men’s wear touches — hardly a surprise, considering he is a hot men’s designer in his own right. According to the show notes, this lineup was destined for an “explorer and citizen of the world,” this time placing her at a local bazaar sampling foods from around the globe (thus the market backdrop with boxes of real fruits and vegetables). The concept translated into tailored three-piece suits with two different stripes, a cinched gray blazer with the belt looping through it, which the designer teamed with a casual beige dress, and a green leather shirtlike dress with large pocket details. As for the accessories, there were several oversize backpacks — perhaps most suited to carry all that fresh produce.
