True Italian Elegance in Trussardi’s SS16

While it’s true that no other runway show during fashion week steals the spotlight quite as much as the mammoths of Dolce & Gabanna, Gucci, Versace, and Prada, there are other lesser known Italian designers worth knowing (and buying!). One of these is Trussardi, a brand whose ready-to-wear has been going on since the 1980s, and whose creative director, Gaia Trussardi is keeping the brand alive. The clothes made in linens, leathers, cotton and suede have an inherently Italian cool effortlessness belonging to the spring and summer.

Sprung Away with Balenciaga’s SS16

Despite his incredible success as a designer, I haven’t always been fan of  Alexander Wang. I say this because it was only recently, on the news that he will be exiting Balenciaga, that I found out he has been the designer of the brand for the past three years. I’ve always been inclined to collections featuring ruffles, floating, delicate, translucent fabrics and other elements that result in an obviously feminine look. So my falling in love with this last collection of his was a logical event.
