A young Joan Didion, Charlotte Rampling, Faye Dunaway, and the indelible Lauren Hutton—these are the muses for TRUSS Resort 2016. She’s darting through the hills of Los Angeles in her convertible, the sun is warm on her face, and the radio is playing only her favorite songs. She has nowhere and everywhere to be.

Inspired by films like American Gigolo and Chinatown, Elise and Gillian turned to LA-based photographer Scottie Cameron and stylist Andrew Vottero for the Resort 2016 campaign. The mood of the collection is vibrant but when bathed in the late-afternoon California sun, the bags appear soft and muted.

Drawn to the colors of Oaxacan buildings and the mountain range skyline at sunset, the Resort 2016 collection combines rich greens, warm oranges, purples, and pinks to create a vibrant color spectrum. The collection also marks the release of new styles, the cross-body leather strap tote and the mini clutch styles with matt black hardware and embossed closure.
