Etro’s Spring/Summer 2017 Collection Sets a Tribal Tone

Veronica Etro’s mindset is that of a tireless globetrotter, whose cosmopolitan approach to the world reflects its perspectives on fashion too. Unveiled at Milan Fashion Week a few hours ago, the Etro spring/summer 2017 ready-to-wear collection is unapologetically chaotic and traditionally sophisticated at the same time, with Etro’s signature paisley motifs getting along pretty well with the overall collection’s eclectic figures, patterns and even completely different patterns.

After all, with eccentric genius and poet Edith Sitwell and actress Talitha Getty as her mood board protagonists, Veronica herself could not handle her line-up’s motifs differently, as with Sitwell’s eclectic mind, and with Getty’s Moroccan-inspired style, things couldn’t end up being more inspiring.

To top it all off, and to better get us in the mood for a whimsical, urban-chic runway show, Veronica Etro chose Led Zeppelin’s soundtrack to accompany her show, as their psychedelic rock style is perfectly in tune especially with the collection’s patterns.

Aside from Etro’s signature paisley and Getty’s Moroccan-inspired patterns, the Etro spring/summer 2017 collection was richly refined with Art Deco motifs too, as well as with more modern stripes and squared patterns showcased either singularly or all together, in the best Edith Sitwell style.

Veronica Etro managed to not only reinvent the Italian fashion house’s traditional patterns, but also those of some of the world’s most fascinating cultures and eras. Ethnic motifs got thus translated to pink touches of colors, while old book prints as well as ancient-looking jewelry got restyled as if they were frozen in time.

As a result, the collection was heavily rich in the color palette too, although being overall dark-toned. A few bright, translucent greens and canary yellows interrupted the line-up’s strict hues with their vivacity, while little pops of bold blues gave some of the garments a much-needed fluidity.

While the collection’s pants and even tunics feature a sort of contrasting lightweight rigor, it was thanks to the lineup’s cardigans, kimono jackets and even capes that the silhouettes found their lightweight fluidity, the ethereality of which could be linked to Tabitha Getty’s free-spirited soul once again.

Romantic and practical, the Etro spring/summer 2017 collection is trapped between two different worlds, yet always managing to give us the best of both. Maxi kaftans got matched either with cozy maxi shorts or gown, while duster coats and practical bags were accompanied by pockets, big enough to be filled with pencils, or even flasks, which were paired with the line-up’s fanciest clothes.

The collection perfectly balanced coziness with high fashion, even treating us to sporty-chic staples, such as sports bras that look nothing but athleisure-inspired, which is no small feat, for sure.

Last but not least, we specifically recommend having a look at the accessory line: from bracelets to sandals, from gaucho boots to deerskin bags, the Etro spring/summer 2017 collection truly gave versatility its most glorious name.
