Attending the Trussardi show was like a visit to the market. Actually before we reached the show location we had to pass a vintage market, so we were already in the mood. The show was organized in a large hangar and at the end of the runway there was a market stall packed with fresh fruits and vegetables. The space, the setting from the runway and the atmosphere created the feeling of being on the countryside.
The collection designed under leadership by Umit Benan Sahin, who designed menswear first took us on a trip to Peru. Trussardi is known for strong and sharp tailoring, which was reflected in the Fall2012 collection in the jackets, the collared shirts and the cut in the trousers and skirts. The looks consisted of many layers, of which the collared shirt formed the basis. Suits consisting of 3 pieces, long skirts over trousers, long wool coats and knitted sweaters were passing the runway. The color pallet consisted of classic, elegant colors like nude and beige, till warm winter colors like orange and brown.
The show ended with strong and powerfull designs like the leather dress and the metallic suit in black. Despite the classic and feminine garments and the use of materials the Hunters really liked the androgynous touch in the collection. Like the large backpacks, the oversized blazers and the use of leather in the looks. The collection inspired us and gave the Hunters some great ideas for the following photoshoots.
