New worlds and forgotten eras were the inspirations behind the Trussardi and Canali collections that showed in Milan this week.
Designer Umit Benan wove the Trussardi collection into a universe between the romantic past and ever-present future. Strong silhouettes and rustic materials like heavy wool and fur were transformed into luxury items while still remaining innately masculine.
Canali presented a collection inspired by past luxury, military style, and art deco. The looks utilized materials from alligator, to cashmere, silk and mink; all in an ode to a beautiful, gothic past where elegance and quality was the ultimate sign of social status.
