I've always had a bias with my preference for Etro.
For one, I'm a huge fan of paisley. Next, the brand is able to intensify or subdue the hues and combination in their aesthetic and design. The patterns can sometimes be complicated to style but they glorify their aesthetic by bringing together more patterns, colors, and details together that turn out to be sensible, lively and free. It's this attitude in creativity that I fall in great love with their collections.
I'm forced to somehow consider updating my travel wear with the paisley and checkered coats and sweaters worn over more prints and patterns. The big silk scarves added more energy in the already bright colored pieces. The runway show somehow tells a story of a Mediterranean dream expedition, only to go back to the realities of the city life.
The first pieces were earth toned looks with most incorporating their signature maroon paisley print.
There were no restrictions with printed or checkered suits and jackets in contrasting palettes. It's an option to freely go for the patterns that blend together and choose colors that unconventionally works together.
The most notable addition were the sun hats with some looks accessorized with huge silk scarves. There is no doubt that the "less is more" principle does not apply.
