Founded by Dante Trussardi in 1911, Trussardi 1911 started as a luxury glove manufacturer in Bergamo, Italy before Dante's grandson, Nicola, took over the business in 1970, turning it into a full fledged lifestyle brand. After his unexpected death in 1999, Nicola's son Francesco stepped in but his tenure would be short lived when he too was in a tragic accident in 2004. Nicola's daughters took over the reins then with a focus on preserving the brand's traditional elegance while still remaining contemporary and cutting-edge.
"I've studied, I've traveled the world, but the most important things I've learned in Italy making the round of workshops with my grandfather Dante." — Nicola Trussardi
