Just a day after the news broke that Umit Benan Sahin is out as the creative director of Trussardi, the brand has named his replacement: Gaia Trussardi.
What else could have inspired the taxicab yellow ensembles that opened Umit Benan Sahin's Spring 2013 collection for Trussardi than women zipping through New York City? Soft to bold yellow pieces included everything from flowy, retro dresses to wide-leg trousers to silk blouses to double-breast suits to sporty jackets. But yellow wasn't the only color of choice at Trussardi. The designer also sent down a bevy of blue ensembles, black leather, cognac colors, as well as white. Silhouettes were mostly loose-fitting and standouts were leather-on-leather shorts suits, a pajama-style floral getup, a luxe snakeskin jacket, and a white safari-style vest with matching pants.
