Milan, Italy – In accordance with the Italian long-standing and absolutely rich tradition, Etro’s fashion statement for simply cannot go wrong. It is primarily the result of good art and requires the high skill of poise to wear.
Kean Etro uniquely rotates the colors of autumn. Those warm hues are not only inspiring within, but also bring out the garments heart. Each piece is hand-painted, and that doubles the collection’s first-rate quality. Unlike the suited classics, the fine velvet ones are a bit of a looser proposal, but still sparkly elegant. However, the pony fur prevails over all together and shines not only on models, but also reigns on the upper portion of the shoes.
Also, here is enough space for the total one look. The guiding trompe l’oeil effects and very distinguishable paisley — Etro’s leitmotiv — are worn as en masse – from the shirt, vest, jacket (and its lining as well), to the holdall ending. The vogue-giving energy is also implants in long velvet scarves, silky neckerchiefs and wide pant belts. And the house is actively getting into the streetwear rage as. This season they finish the trousers with elastic cuffs and ribbed endings of several inches in length.
It would seem that the blending of heavy materials with its subtle versions is duet reserved for women’s fashion only. Not for Etro. The chocolate silk pants worn with a bulky wool jacket is a definite must-have of the season.
Such an opera d’arte!
