IT'S ALWAYS LEATHER WEATHER
THE CREATIVE DIRECTOR OF TRUSSARDI TALKS ABOUT HER PASSION FOR
LEATHER JACKETS, HER SEASONLESS CLOTHING, AND HER MOST PRIZED ACCESSORIES - THOSE SHE CAN TAKE WITH HER ON HER BICYCLE.

Full of energy, Gaia Trussardi describes herself as "an adventurous individual, like my father.” She doesn't let her workload get her down and never leaves home without her bicycle. Gaia, 37, has a son and daughter, 10 and 9 respectively, and in 2013 became creative director of Trussardi, the label founded by her grandfather, Dante, and made famous by her father, Nicola.    
 
We met her early one morning at Caf� Trussardi in Milan. When she arrives the first thing she does is drape her leather jacket over a chair. “I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world.  Actually, all my leather jackets are irreplaceable," she confesses, a smile lighting up her face.  Then she gets comfortable, runs a hand through her messy blond hair and immediately orders a coffee.
LOVE KNOWS NO SEASON 

Some pieces are good all year round, like a blazer and cr�pe pants. Printed shirts also work well: I wear them in the summer with a pair of shorts, and in the winter with a maxi cardigan.

I ONLY WEAR SKINNY JEANS IF THEY ARE HIGH-WAISTED – AND THEN ALWAYS WITH A BUTTON-DOWN SHIRT
MY FAVORITE JEANS

I like denim with a unique wash or an on-trend cut, ideally something that works well with the fashion of the moment. I recently bought two pairs of high-waisted jeans covered with patches and embroidery which I’ve been
wearing lots. 
I'M ALWAYS ON MY BIKE WITH MY CROSS BODY BAG
MASCULINE OR FEMININE?

I feel more affinity with masculine style than feminine style, if by feminine you mean clich� femininity. What is masculine? What is feminine? There’s hardly any difference. The type of feminine style whose purpose is to attract men isn’t my idea of femininity. I can't live without my blazer, leather jacket, pleated pants, shirts – even with ruffles – and sports sweaters. 
I love to get around by bike, so I often choose a cross body satchel or a tote with a long strap. I have lots of practical booties and loafers for the same reason, but if I'm dressing for a special night out then I'll choose a pump with an aggressive pointed toe.
THE REAL GEM OF MY WARDROBE IS MY LEATHER JACKET COLLECTION
