Milan: Etro’s signature paisleys have never looked more appropriate, as the 1970s becomes a pervasive influence this season. The earthy palette of mustard and khaki and shades of brown referenced the era, but was enlivened with jade, burnt orange and sky blue. Soft silk trousers and jumpsuits had an easy elegance, while billowy tops and skirts looked ultra-luxe. Scarf dresses and mixed ethnic-influenced prints made for a carefree bohemian attitude, and classic button-ups and a handful of tailored pieces offered a sensible counterbalance. Shoulder cutouts and one-shoulder tops showed off the season’s new erogenous zone, though the collection leaned towards the covered-up side overall; jewel necklines and sleeves – both short and long – were other key design elements. Veronica Etro’s homage to her label’s own heyday resulted in one of her best collections in seasons, with an appealing relaxed attitude and an undercurrent of luxury.
