Kanye west performed at the 2011 Essence Music Festival wearing a white shawl collared blazer, Balmain belt and jeans ($890), as well as a pair of black suede Trussardi 1911 fringe sneakers from the Fall/Winter 2010 Collection. What do you think of his look? See pics below
This Trussardi 1911 Large Leather Bag ($1,285) form the Spring/Summer 2011 Collection can without a doubt be used for business or travel and still present a high level of style. It’s composed of cowhide with contrasting dark brown leather, and features tassels and logo branding on the front. Another look below.
For the Fall/Winter 2010 Collection, Trussardi 1911 introduced a slew of sneakers ($553-$605+) that take the ideas established in the earlier seasons and progresses those design concepts even further. The main focus of this line-up of sneakers is plaid and tassels, which were complemented with leather and suede. Check out the rest below.
Milan S/S 2011 Fashion week was just amongst us, and these are a few of the looks I’m interested in seeing make it from the runway into my everyday style. So out of these four looks which one do you like best? And which do you see yourself rockin’?
Plucked from the runway, this first look is from the Burberry S/S 2011 Collection, and even though Burberry had several outstanding pieces, this one caught my eye. Ultimately, it came down to the loud effects of the mustard yellow trench layered over the white tank and accentuated with the black pants and sandals. (Which I would substitute with a pair of boots or sneakers)
This look is from the Dolce & Gabanna Spring 2011 Collection, and it screams Summer and Spring. The color and texture of the sweater is what sets off this look and serves as the base for the entire fit. Once that was established, everything fell in line perfectly. The grey belt separates the top from the bottom half allowing for the frayed white linen pants and the sneakers to bring it all together.
The Trussardi brand originally launched in 1911 as a glove manufacturer and later branched out into clothing, leather goods and accessories. In 2008 the high-end Italian brand relaunched their menswear label Trussardi 1911 under the direction of designer Milan Vukmirovic. The high top sneakers ($465-$600+) from the Trussardi 1911 Spring/Summer 2010 collection feature high quality design characteristics with premium leathers, suedes, patent leathers, tassels and camouflage.
