Etro Fall 2016 RTW Is About Nineties London Grunge

Are you game to go into raptures with number one ethnic style executor? It is all systems ready to revel in the Etro fall/winter 2016-2017 RTW collection and to be once more wrapped with Veronica Etro’s au natural predilections – earthy shades, featherweight tulle and lace, shimmering velvet, the brand’s iconic paisley mixed with floral motifs and not one iota of clinginess. True to the form, there were flaring and steamy gowns galore on Etro’s runway covered with rugs all in keeping with Etro’s mishmash aesthetics.

Pretty knitted berets, Mary-Janes paired with socks in earthy shades and those overlong scarves that were at times going longer than the maxi dresses were the best items selected by the designer to team with those languid silhouettes and warm cozy outerwear. A glance at the collection and we could instantly perceive Veronica Etro’s aim to draw our attention to street-style, but of course staying within her bohemian spirit. “It’s like that kind of woman is looking outside the window to see what’s happening on the street,” Etro said backstage.

But her thoughts were presumably left unfinished since we clearly saw that woman rushing outside enthusiastically and mingling with the city hustle and bustle. But this was also the evocation of the past, cocooned with some memories brought from Veronica Etro’s life back in London in the early Nineties.

The ethereal gowns in tulle or at times in velvet were exposing dense amalgamation of prints – flowers, leaves, paisleys, plaids and other abstract motifs and there was scarcely any sample worn without a coat, a jacket or a cardigan, not to tell about scarves and berets mixed. That checkered festival was especially interesting in terms of chaos that is all in rage at this juncture – a greyish plaid midi dress teamed with a cropped blazer with purple checkered sleeves and a blue checkered flannel shirt wrapped around the waist. This was from soup to nuts street-style.

Leather moto jackets were screaming Etro embellished with floral embroidery at sleeves or all over the map. Plaid long coats and short coats with mink lapels were in a quest to warm up female bodies meandering round the city come the cold season, while the parkas were ideal for showery days. We were also pumped about those engrossing hybrids of chunky knitted sweaters in colorful stripes worn over flaring gowns or else paired with languid trousers.

It’s worth mentioning Etro’s hallmark being textile production and intricate handicraft, which was best illustrated on a tulle gown with many botanical motifs in burgundy and navy blue, while its burgundy pair, a cropped blazer was trotting out some royal golden embroidery on the cuffs and near the lapels.

Though the Etro fall 2016 collection was entirely focused on bringing forth creative clutter, some of the gowns were so stunning and sophisticated that even a single addition to it would have hidden a detail and thereby would have loused up the whole pulchritude. That was the main reason to render out that exquisite flaring gown without anything worn over or wrapped around the waist to show all and sundry abstract prints in burgundy, olive green and black, the neckline in a pretty unique design and the bottom transparency showing off the shadow of the model’s legs in somewhat mysterious manner.
