Sophisticated Paisley for Etro’s Fall Show

Watch the Etro Fall/Winter 2012-2013 show here:

Following season after season of intensely acclaimed collections by Kean Etro for the brand’s menswear line, it is now time for his younger sibling, Veronica, to shine.

 The Fall/Winter 2012-2013 season has proved to be a good opportunity for Veronica to show a successful, put-together collection, featuring an abundance of Etro’s classic elements.

Playing with the House’s signature print – paisley, the designer came up with feminine silhouettes with a dandy twist, inspired by men’s fashion. The models were decked in tailored pants with a masculine feel, paired with coats or jackets with waits accentuated by wide belts, but also a series of pencil skirts.

Shiny black leather accents, transparent veil, velvet and fur all came to sustain the collection’s feel of sophistication. The opening look, with the skinny, almost legging-like paisley printed pants, which resembled tattooed skin, marked the fact that Veronica Etro sure knows how to play with the idea of bad-girl chic.
