Gaia Trussardi was inspired by unconventional women for her Trussardi Women’s Fall/Winter 2014-2015 collection: Anna Karina in Bande à part by Jean-Luc Godard and Jeanne Moreau in Jules et Jim by François Truffaut. These women break the rules and conventions with immediacy and freshness, and with the energy of a breathless race through the corridors of the Louvre, as in the famous scene created by Godard and re-enacted by Bernardo Bertolucci in The Dreamers.
The tone is light and impalpable: individual freedom rejects every dogmatism, even in the wardrobe. The silhouette is domestic and enveloping. The clothes barely reveal the body’s curves yet retain its sensual energy. Volumes have been completely redesigned: oversized and ironic, they create new classics such as the bomber jacket that grazes the knee, the new trucker coat with unique proportions, comfortable ample jackets, and trousers with a banana silhouette. In an idiosyncratic interpretation, classic garments borrowed from a man’s wardrobe are combined in a style that uses elements of uniforms but not the entire look. The cultured, literary tone of the collection is summed up by the polo shirt, the garment inherited from aristocratic sports, which comes in stripes, dazzling intarsia, and piquet with gold embroidery and even turns into a silver Lurex dress. The ample, protective sweatshirt, more similar to outerwear due to proportion and character, is made of leather with bugle bead embroidered emblems, leather intarsia and technical jersey. Shearling coats and angora sweaters are textured in feel. Skirts are sleek and graceful.
