Gaia Trussardi presented Trussardi‘s Spring Summer 2017 menswear collection during the Milano Fashion Week. The collection explores the borderline between past and present, nostalgia and technology, traditional and genderless roles. The silhouettes are split in half with jackets and vests on top combined with the jogging pants.
The point of departure is the art of Ligabue and Vincent Van Gogh, especially the agitated lines and bold strokes they used to portray the clothes of the male figures in their paintings. Those textured surfaces – almost like rippling waves – appear on the classic fabrics of traditional menswear that break apart in a movement that shatters convention and geometric shapes. Personality and the importance of self-affirmation are at the basis of the new cult of masculinity. In a moment in which roles are redefined, the Trussardi collection focuses on the significance of authoritative distinction. Prints of classical busts with strokes of primary colors stand out like paintings-à-portér. Python leather returns as a protagonist of a dandyism that does not want to surprise, but opens new paths of expression in personal elegance. – from Trussardi
