Trussardi 1911: Variety is the Spice of Trussardi


Every snob should be keen to deluxe Italian brand Trussardi (yes, since 1911!), still maintaining just a cult following in the States. I’m setting out to change that! And so is the house’s new collection of bags, a gorgeous assortment of luxurious clutches, hobos, and satchels, in an enticing variety of laminated metallics, vegetable-tanned and silk-screened leathers, shredded denims and off-beat prints, most with their signature antiqued gold hardware. One bag brand with something for everyone! I bought my first Trussardi bag in Milan during fashion week a few seasons ago and have been watching the brand closely ever since. The latest collection does not disappoint!

The bright crimson bandoleer bag in vachetta leather ($995) – the conventional touches of classic hardware make the color feel racy – would be an instant go-to, while the metallic gold-trimmed shopper tote ($938) looks like raffia, but there’s a twist: the fabric has been designed to resemble a “straw mat” (personally, my favorite part is the layered and laced-up handles). The black-and-white hobo bag ($848) blends skin with the same panache as it does opposing shades: python and sheep leather are a winning team.

The spunky set will appreciate the scruffy luxury of a chain-strapped purse ($790) in striped denim and crust leather. Or go sleek with the evening-worthy fabric and nappa leather clutch ($562), with a detachable chain-strap so thin and delicate, it almost doubles as jewelry. True Trussardi fans (and real bag snobs) will recognize them both by the trademark pyramid front detail.
