Etro MFW fall 2017



It is riche... it is niche ... it is luxe... it is boho... it is an explosion of patterns... it is a souk of colors and it is undeniably ETRO. There is little like it and it is one of those brands that even though the audience is rarefied at best, it hardly ever deviates from its roots.

The stars here are obviously the jackets and coats and god knows there are plenty of both. Unquestionably, these are the clothes or rather pieces that inhabit the wardrobes and closets of collectors and connoisseurs of fashion. These are not fashion victim clothes as they follow no trend other than that of its own particular DNA.

Etro is all about and celebrates the art and craft of fashion starting with the fabrications and finishing with the Etro look which is described above in, I think , very accurate terms. It is almost unfair to measure them or for them to be measured against other brands as Etro is a sort of stand-alone collection in that it rarely if ever pretends to be what it’s not ... think Agnona!
