Etro Spring 2013
Veronica Etro clearly had florals on her brain when designing for Spring 2013, but not in the way that one would expect. Bold and colorful Spanish flamenco-inspired florals were beautiful on pant suits, shirtdresses, pencil skirts, and elaborate flowy gowns. As the collection grew, so did the size and brightness of the flowers on the clothes. By the end, it was a mesmerizing garden scene. Likewise, sleek Japanese influences were felt throughout the show. Structured kimono jackets with cropped, cuffed, wide-leg trousers brought a modern twist to the traditional garb. Of course Etro's signature paisley print was also present, as were a few striped suits and dresses. There were a few solid pieces sprinkled in, but it was generally a mixed-prints party.
