Trussardi FW18

Trussardi FW18

In the Trussardi clothing collection, each piece become elements: the oversize coat constructed to perfection, the trousers with a wide, perfect line, the skirt with a split, the essential knitwear, the sartorial blazer, the biker jacket. And the leather: of the highest quality, hand-made or glittery, brightened with prints or woven into tartan patterns. And again embellished with markings like imaginary punctuation.

This is family as tribe. The fast modernity of Milan, without nostalgia. And the cult of Italian savoir-faire, from the quality of the materials to the attitude of doing everything well and with style. Multi-ethnic, unrestrained by function or role, the Trussardi Fall Winter 2018/19 Men’s and Women’s Collection is writing a new aesthetic language dedicated to an urban gang of guys and girls, fictional and yet real, caught between tradition and contemporary revolutions.

   The silhouettes are vertical, large, often highlighting the waist with an air of solemnity. The lines are fluid, fast and dynamic. It is a style that brings together agility and sophistication, references from yesterday’s wardrobe and the disenchanted attitude of today’s metropolitan tribes.

   Verve Fashion Magazine attended the Black Panther “Welcome to Wakanda” event during New York Fashion Week ahead of the film’s release primarily because of the designers showing at the event.

   But our focus has always been the intersection of fashion and beauty with the society as a whole.


   The designers showing who designed Wakanda-inspired outfits that would be auctioned off on for the international humanitarian organization Save The Children, were:

   The fictional nation of Wakanda was styled by costume designer Ruth E. Carter. Carter based the look on research pulled from many different parts of Africa to create patterns, colors, beadwork and silhouettes of an “’Afro-Future’ idyllic concept with Wakanda and make it a world we had not seen before in cinema.” she says.
