Rebellious elegance: contrasts take center stage

01

This collection is all about contrasts: a traditional spirit and unconventional approach emerge in elegant details combined with almost menswear sartorial cuts.
The romantic, feminine character of the Trussardi woman for 2013 is expressed through light, flowing fabrics, silhouettes with waistlines emphasized by precious belts, and floral and geometric rints. The rebellious element of the collection emerges in the striking accessories such as the bib-like necklaces worn like tops under jackets, fine leather accessories, and vibrant colors. Contrasts continue as luxurious materials are used for simple garments: leisure time shorts are made of alligator leather, while silk blouses have colorful python leather trim. Colors range from deep cobalt blue to yellow veering towards cream and white. Masculine and feminine, tradition and modernity blend to create a new concept of luxury: rebellious, masculine/feminine elegance.

Creativity: behind the scenes
