Etro Resort 2017 Collection

Resort collections always evoke a great deal of passion, as thoughts of traveling bring with them thoughts of immersing oneself in a new culture, and of experiencing the world on a new level. For Etro’s resort 2017 collection, the culture is India and the vehicle is the simple yet elegant clothes in the collection, which give forth a surprising amount of cultural elements without overpowering the whole line.

The signature paisley pattern of the brand is, naturally, featured in this collection, right beside hints of ancient costumes from India and Mandalas. The resulting clothes appear to be wearer-friendly, and will continue to work for the wearer throughout the year.

Black, billowy pants with a delicate floral pattern make for great summer pants, particularly for travel; this silhouette always promotes feelings of luxury, so their place in a resort collection is more than appreciated.

The classic colors of India are ever present in the Etro cruise 2017 line as well, with shades of blue, orange, and purple with a variety of patterns worn together, yet still never overpowering. The aforementioned billowy pants being featured with an airy blouse of another black pattern and a graphic jacket with all of the colors from the line, for instance, still managed to stick to its cause and not become overwhelming. In fact, each piece is still able to stand out in its own way, making this an ideal showcasing technique to appreciate all of the clothing in the line.

Veronica Etro, creative director of the family owned and operated label’s womenswear collections, decided to shake things up a bit. The collections are often characterized by bohemian garments, edging on the hippie side, which was present and notable in this collection, but she also brought in some modern, metropolitan designs as well.

The fine, breezy dresses, blouses, and pants work well toward the bohemian side of the collection, while garments like the sleek jacquard jacket show the metropolitan side. The gold opulence of the coat was also brought into the bag and skirt, which accessorized the outerwear that acted as the luxurious and elegant standout piece of the outfit.

With India as the theme here, the motifs were present side by side with the bohemian looks, most notably. One piece that balanced these well was the long jacquard vest, which hosted a myriad of ethnic prints, and was paired with floor-billowed pants. This type of print was used again with a pair of simple skinny jeans, the pant leg hems featuring a colorful pattern embroidered on them, and even tassels hanging down.

The Etro resort 2017 collection presented was rather small, especially compared with others coming out around this time, but the statement made and the garments created more than make up for quantity. When a collection can make such a loud appearance, less is more, and Etro really showed some necessary restraint to pull off the whole line.
