The collection transforms from slick retro red, black, and white to updated 90s American prep, gotta love it. The prints? Native-American. check. Stripes. check. Plaid. check. And get this– Trussardi even gives us a "hint of fatigue", lol. Is Milan Vukmirovic in my head… I think he is. (He's Trussardi's creative director, btw). But more than anything, Trussardi's Spring 2011 collection gives us proper elegant summer layers– shawl sweaters, a variety of jackets, swanky footwear, and bags (that don't look like purses).
Corenliani's Milan debut collection certainly asserts the Italian brand's position amongst other great designers. The beginning of this collection gives me flashes of classic Tarzan and a "proper" wealthy person's safari (in a good way) then progresses to give potential examples for other gentlemen activities– such as polo or perhaps croquet.
There's this very easy elegance about the collection that keeps every look appealing; I think it's the loose tailoring– there's lots of triple-pleated trousers, roomy jackets, and relaxed knitwear. With an abundance of overall gentleman's versatility, Corenliani's offers pieces that can easily manifest into any gents spring wardrobe.
A direct ode to the casual lifestyle of 50s Americana suburbia– polos, gingham, vintage safari/beach vacation prints. This is a great collection
