Fall Winter 2017 Woman Runway Collection

Temperance. The Empress. Justice. The female gures of tarot cards are the inspiration for the Trussardi Women’s Fall/Winter 2017-18 collection. Past and present blend: everything develops to describe an aesthetic that is not interested in trends but wants to renew a heritage and expertise transformed into style and modernity. 

It starts with leather – a heritage of the brand – and its treatments. The tailored suit in treated leather has a timeless look and is given a sportier vibe with ribbed knit trim, just like the dark brown crust leather jacket as soft as a glove with a large multicolored ribbed collar. The slip dress comes in a leather version with unexpected monochrome patchwork suede, where seams are embellished with special top-stitching in a contrasting color. Finally, the oversized wraparound coat in dark brown crust leather features patch decorations, a technique used in other garments to underline that tarot card theme that links the entire collection. 

Fall Winter 2017 Man Runway Collection

In the presentation staged in the rooms of the Brera Pinacoteca Gallery, the Tarot cards become genuine characters: timeless ideal men expressing a new style concept. A series of actors will portray them on small stages in a theater of contemporary thought, cultures and moods. 

Trussardi’s formal wardrobe is unlined, light, soft and deconstructed. Nylon has a “cloudy” e ect. Impressive trench coats have python leather collars. Robe coats come in wool and suede. Masculine sartorial silhouettes borrow details from leather goods to create a more casual, active mood.

The focus is on leather: dark brown and midnight black buckskin and suede in shades of sand, burnished brown or legendary Trussardi blue. Emblems – echoes of imaginary, indelible elegance – appear throughout the collection and adorn garments with the oversized “T” logo above a bugle bead crown. Accessories feature backpacks and clutches with classic lace-up shoes.
