Making a Patchwork from History: Etro Fall/Winter 2014

Etro show at Milan Fashion Week was a colorful patchwork made from paisley patterns the brand was famous for. Veronica Etro decided to open the family archive and use it for her inspiration. She created collages by blending together family designs from different decades. It was a fun journey through history.

The clothes are very ethnic and hence traditional, but also very contemporary with modern shapes and tailoring. Pieces like Romanian blouses, Peruvian ponchos and Mongolian lamb gilets were mixed together in a very diverse, multiethnic collection which is just ideal for modern nomads in the globalized world.

    Adore Etro–they’re such “masters of the mix”–pattern, colour and texture…
    and totally adore all those delicious blanket scarves and wraps…
    and all the chic and luscious “blanket dressing”~ xo
