Convention and rebellion. Lightness as a spontaneous form of dissent. Gaia Trussardi was inspired by unconventional women for her Trussardi Women’s Fall/Winter 2014-2015 collection: Anna Karina in Bande à part by Jean-Luc Godard and Jeanne Moreau in Jules et Jim by François Truffaut. These women break the rules and conventions with immediacy and freshness.




Volumes have been completely redesigned: oversized and ironic, they create new classics such as the bomber jacket that grazes the knee, the new trucker coat with unique proportions, comfortable ample jackets, and trousers with a banana silhouette. The ample, protective sweatshirt, more similar to outerwear due to proportion and character, is made of leather with bugle bead embroidered emblems, leather intarsia and technical jersey. Skirts are sleek and graceful. Heavy materials such as bulky wool, tweed, herringbone tweed, leather and angora are sensuous. The color palette is organic and molten: shades of gray, muddy brown, camel, and black are blended in warm pictorial compositions with metallic glimmers and unexpected, cheeky splashes of fuchsia. The deconstructed classic concept continues in bags: small luxurious bucket bags are a mere shell. Made of crocodile or leather with a visible grain, they have colorful inserts, metallic hardware, and leather and chain shoulder straps. Shoes have an ironic scholastic look: clunky derby shoes have a platform sole, chunky heel, and fringe.
