Trussardi does leather. Well, you probably know that already, but it’s worth reminding yourself either way so that when you see just how much leather they used in this collection you don’t worry that Rick Owens will have to skip next season due to a global shortage. Dresses, tops, suits, jumpsuits; you name it, it was here and it was leather. Trussardi started as a leather manufacturer, which goes a long way to explain the obsession, though this was unquestionably overkill (for want of a better word).
It wasn’t all bad, ribbed knitted dresses secured with wide leather belts (obviously) worked really well - that kind of tactile blend of fabrics is wearable and sexy while retaining the classic Trussardi brand identity. A big black shearling coat again demonstrated that working to their strengths can absolutely feel fresh and cool. Sadly those elements felt few and far between – any collection which champions a sort of strapless leather doublet is, as far as I’m concerned, one to say as little about as possible.
