Gaia Trussardi kept things clean and classic this season, concentrating on fine tailoring, and light touches of the house’s signature leather. As she scanned her mood board before the show pointing to suits of various shapes and proportions, she said they can solve a variety of wardrobe problems — as long as they’re not too structured and styled in an unfussy way.
Hers came in blue-and-brown check, corduroy, iridescent copper velvet, chocolate suede, soft cinnamon leather with a laid-back Seventies feel, and chalk-stripe with a jacket cut like a peacoat. Trousers ranged from the wide and pooling to the cropped and flared, the latter showing off sleek leather boots.
Leather pieces had that laid-back Trussardi glamour, as in one aviator-inspired brown shearling jacket with a crackled surface, a long chocolate suede bathrobe coat, and a short bomber style with knitted, striped waist and cuffs, done in the spirit of a tracksuit top.
A few male models showed off pieces from the Trussardi men’s collection, which already had its runway moment last month, and Trussardi said the two collections have become increasingly similar in spirit. Asked whether she’d consider wrapping them into a single, coed show in June, she said she’s hasn’t made up her mind yet. “It’s possible,” she said.
