Trussardi spring/summer 2015

Trussardi Adds Showiness to This Season’s Sportswear Trend

Gaia Trussardi is upholding the family label this season by redefining Italian sportswear, according to the most dynamic woman. It seems that athleticism has been “on-trend” for spring/summer 2015 with Flyknit mini-dresses at Alexander Wang and sneakers at, well, just about everywhere. Though, the Trussardi athlete is different; she’s a bit showy.

Trussardi’s Olympian silhouette accentuates that lean, runner’s physique with form fitting tank tops, mini-miniskirts, and shorts. Though, the fabrics are somewhat impractical for these proportions—ostrich skin, fine leathers, and crocodile. This was perhaps Gaia’s playful, yet conspicuous quest for authentic luxury. There were some longer pieces, also whimsical, like suede jumpsuits and monochromatic pantsuits that were particularly reminiscent of competitive sportswear. Certainly, the accessories sustain timeless luxury. Some bags were a continuation of older styles, though done in crocodile and perforated leather—a true expression of artisan workmanship.

The collection was precise, the fabrics were fine, there was movement (either flowing or form), and colors were vibrant. Undoubtedly, the knits were among the most wearable items on the catwalk, which Trussardi drunkenly caped over one shoulder or turned into short knit playsuits, similar to vintage swimsuits.

Gaia Trussardi created her version of the ultimate competitor—that showy, keeping-up with the Joneses, kind-of woman. She hit the nail on the head with just that, and she certainly is not playing it safe for her (only) third collection with the label.
