Tag Archives: Etro

Seated on the steps of an octagonal construction – quite an experience – placed centre stage, I enjoyed one of Milan Fashion Week’s highlights, Etro! Founded on paisley, the Kashmiri design that Scottish weavers turned into the pattern we know, Kean Etro goes back to the roots, calling his new collection Playsley. It is a return to paisley’s Kashmiri roots. Rather than the masculine hyper-tailoring that has been a traditional house signature, there were soft, flowing pieces that were much more androgynous. Tops flowing below suit blazers, relaxed pants being cuffed at the ankle, military inspired jackets cut for comfort in light weight fabrics… this collection is all about effortless elegance. Add a turban and next Summer will be an Indian one. The show ended with several head-to-toe white outfits (trend!), but before that there was a color explosion. Blue, red, purple… this was Etro at its best, colorful!

Etro, fashion house and manufacturer of fabrics, furniture and fragrances, is as Italian as spaghetti. Well, actually too Italian for me, but I was very happy I was invited to their latest menswear show, always one of the highlights during Milan Fashion Week.

Etro’s new man is a adventurer, dressed in feathers and wearing long cloaks with tribal patterns. The Fall Winter 2012-13 collection is a journey through the most exotic locations, a colorful collection with colors like blue, black, brown, orange, burgundy, red, sand and emerald. The high craftmanship of the collection can be seen in every detail, from the patchwork to the inlays in feathers, using fabrics like wool loop pile, velvet, jacquard, silk and mohair. Sometimes completely over-the-top… what a show!
