In the occasion of the Milan Furniture Fair 2011 Trussardi has launched a new collaboration with designer Michael Young for the creation of a design project that reflects the values of the fashion house. The Trussardi MY Design project inspired by the brandʼs commitment to product design that was amply developed in the eighties and nineties through ambitious, spectacular projects and prestigious partnerships with Alitalia, Vespa, and Alfa Romeo. Michael Young has researched in the Trussardi archives to find the historic elements of inspiration for the new collection 100 Collection – Trussardi MY Design.
The history of the brand becomes a source of inspiration for new contemporary products: the 100 Collection combines the distinctive values of the fashion house and its outstanding Italian quality, with the ability to develop new materials and new technologies typical of Asia. The new collection combines 100 years of Italian leather- working expertise with the shapes and technologies of contemporary Asia. The 100 Collection provides new insight in the dialog between East and West and is the essence of high quality, style, and technological innovation.
