“I believe it’s a time of remix both in music and fashion. The challenge is to create something that appears familiar but in a new way,” said designer Milan Vukmirovic at the Seventies-inspired Trussardi 1911 presentation.
To that end, Vukmirovic referenced David Bailey’s Tahitian shots of Marie Helvin from the era to create bold palm leaf prints for one-shoulder cocktail dresses, high-waisted silk pants and billowing floor-length dresses that possessed both a cheeky wit and a contemporary feel. Utilizing the house’s exquisite craftsmanship, animal print motifs were subtly worked into delicate eyelet lace tops, jackets and leggings giving a feminine spin on Vukmirovic’s trademark military jackets.
Accessories had a more literal disco feel albeit a luxurious one with metallic leather strips creating optical effects on high-heeled sandals and clutch bags.
