MILAN, Jun 26, 2012/ — Nicola Trussardi’s young son welcomes to his family home dear friends from around the world to spend relaxing moments at the beach.
Travel is the major theme and is portrayed here by the trip from the family home to the beach. The young men of the Trussardi dynasty, in their perfectly coordinated and exquisitely detailed outfits, head to the beach on foot or by bike, accompanied by their inseparable greyhounds on leash.
The collection expresses history and tradition – the colors, materials and silhouettes are inspired by the brand’s heritage – but with a contemporary twist. Classic combinations have an edgy, fresh, contemporary feel, with details that consistently reflect the look of the Trussardi man on vacation and at leisure.
The looks are based on precise color palettes in different tone-on-tone nuances: green, from bottle green to sage; different shades of blue that ultimately veer towards black; yellow combined with ochre, tan, and tobacco; and variations of white, from classic white to off-white.
The garments tell the story of a man on vacation, relaxed at any time of day. Light washed silk or linen shirts inspired by classic cuts or caftans are soft and slightly bloused. Special pockets were designed to hold a newspaper that can be tucked away and then easily be pulled out and read at any moment. There are cotton trousers and Bermuda shorts, as well as swim trunks in solid colors or with a Trussardi logo print. Even formal suits are worn with nonchalance, and their sartorial construction is offset by summery fabrics such as linen and cotton.
