Milan: Ornate wallpapers, rich tapestries and luxurious upholstery textiles provided a creative playground for designer Veronica Etro. She has always been an expert in arranging eclectic and characteristic ensembles. This season she took us in to the world of interiors tailored in a long and lean 70’s silhouette. A tonal colour palette of earthy tones such as tobacco, coffee, camel and ochre helped to soften the abundance of patterns and its opulence. Rich embroidery, printing and weaving in a mélange of velvet, sequins and silks created a eccentric and eclectic vibe yet cut in sharp and clean shapes, allowing a neat silhouette. ‘Maximalism in control’ was how Etro interpreted her collection. Matching jacquard tunic and trouser sets layered under a patch-worked coat along with a sequin dresses, felt refined and sophisticated. – Christa Kaufmann
