Dante Trussardi started this business as a glove-maker in 1910. His grandson, Nicola Trussardi, recently was in the news due to a tragic car accident. Nicola inherited the business in 1970 from his brother (who also died in a car accident) and expanded the family business in fine leather goods and accessories, and ready-to-wear lines for men, women and children.
Trussardi’s most recent designer is Jeremy Scott, who joined them in 1997. Sobriety, naturalness and seductiveness applied both to the material and the form, express the character of the Trussardi style, a style the American press has dubbed ""the modern sensuality"".
