Etro – MFW SS13

GOD BLESS Etro… what an AMAZING cultural collection.
Etro MFW Runway Show Spring Summer 2013 My outsider view on the runway:
I’ve never actually given Etro the time of day before but OH MY, I will now!  It reminded me of Matthew Williamson’s designs, just on a grander scale.  I’ve always believed Italian designers are the best, and this so far is one of my standout collections!

The collection showcased a Geisha girl mixed with a Grecian goddess, with a splash of sport luxe and a twist of Botanical gardens and a Spanish Senorita, and it all worked PERFECTLY!

The show started with Geisha girl references in a sophisticated style.  Cropped loose trousers joined the collection alongside pyjama print outfits with a more ‘adult’ look.  One of my standout outfits was the flower power orange trouser playsuit with the monochrome front panel.  It was all a bit Stella McCartney meets Milan.

For spanish flavour, curved neck sleeve tops reminiscent of a fan featured heavily with matching culottes.  I’m not a fan of culottes as they suit 0.1% of the population but the whole Etro ensemble was fresh to death!

The more sporty pieces featured sequins on a small time scale.  They wern’t brash and over the top, even though I do like that style, but Etro’s version are more ‘day to night’, whereas I like the ‘night’ variety in general.  I have to say these bits were more tailored and for the modern woman.  The sequin trousers were definitely something I would wear.

The grecian goddess rocked handkerchief style tops, floaty floral maxi’s and oil blend prints.  I can honetly see Warehouse adopting this next season as some of the prints are similar to what they did for SS12.  It’s definitely a Warehouse favourite.  I can guarantee it.

Now if only I could afford Etro!
