Trussardi’s Autumn/Winter 2012 collection was living proof that Umit Bennan was the smartest HR choice in a long time. The show opened as a blank canvas with a selection of outfits in white and ivory setting the foundation for the subsequent burst of colour; reds, ocre and orange were closely followed by moss and celadon greens.
Ensembles included loose-fitting capri pants, buttoned-up shirts with thick pointed collars and lots of layers. Winter coats came in all shapes and sizes; short and long, heavy in leather or mixed with fur as well as those with the tailored look. Thick woolen knits, high-waisted pants and a particular skirt over trouser ensemble also gave a lasting impression. Although the collection’s masculine air was inescapable – three-piece tailored suits including pinstripes - the variety of looks and colour palette made way for an extremely wearable collection.
Another strength was accessories. The recurring Mid-West inspired hat came in many shades while bags, belts, and boots appeared in almost every look. There were many thin belts slipping around high-waited trousers, weekend bags ready to make there holiday appearance and the laced up Winter boot with the all important pair of socks on show!
