Etro AW16

Etro AW16-Milan Fashion Week Rex

For the Autumn/Winter 2016 Etro line-up, Veronica Etro was inspired by her youth in buzzy London, where she pitted casual daywear against formal eveningwear, the raw against the decorative. The result? A seasonless, glamorous wardrobe that's ready for anything.

Most genius were the coats, many of which were reversible – a functional military jacket doubled as an evening topper thanks to its gleaming brocade lining, and a cosy, velvet quilted jacket could be flipped inside out to reveal a printed silk exterior – or at least adjustable, with oversize tartan overcoats finished with removable Mongolian fur collars. Worn over cobweb lace jumpers, printed pyjama pants and even chiffon gowns, they were the perfect hybrid of boho and luxe.

The house's signature paisley prints were morphed into tougher, more contemporary motifs, such as checks, abstract florals, tiger stripes and dragon embroidery. These appeared on ribbed turtlenecks, long skirts and lace dresses. For evening, gowns were completely encrusted with paillettes, embroidery and micro-beading - but somehow didn't feel OTT. Luckily in London, anything goes.
