A groundbreaking show and mash-up of musical hits from the ’80s and ’90s presented the vibrant collection Veronica Etro for fall, which took the brand’s cods, ripped them apart and served up a fresh medley rich in comforting textures. Changed them again for more vibrant patterns.
In her quest to reinterpret the home’s heritage, the creative director zoomed in on Paisley, which she blew up to maxi proportions—to the extent that it almost developed an animal pattern into a pretty shearling jacket; He fragmented archival designs to create new motifs with his parts – such as a botanical theme repeated in a series of breezy dresses – and rendered tapestry textures in monochrome versions.
These were mixed in different combinations, while the designer maintained the attitude of comfort by firmly anchoring the collection on knitwear. In favor of elongated silhouettes, Etro sipped down a colorful patchwork look made from deadstock fabric, along with runway crochet dresses with cutouts and long skirts with fringe trimming.
The tactile feel added to the sly vibe and was also seen in the braided details and sequined embellishments. Cue the crocheted pants in a tank top and sequins that stole the show.
The spirit of the workmanship also informed the accessories, which included hammered Pegasus logo-shaped jewelry and bags with hand-woven fringe.
Etro also filtered its vision through tailoring – flashy when rendered in a burgundy or peacock blue velvet suit – as well as more dressy options, such as jersey dresses covered in gleaming metal straps.
