    29 days ago - By WWD

    A Ralph rainbow landed at Lauren's Milan palazzo, with a lineup of silk shantung jackets in tangerine, bougainvillea pink, emerald and bright yellow. The dazzling color set the mood for this natty, Franco-Italian Riviera inspired collection, a mix of spiffy tailoring, smart separates and feather-light knitwear.
    The collection was tighter and more pared-down than those of past seasons, more about fabrics than logos, and in step with the luxe lifestyle the label purveys. In addition to those mood-boosting jackets, which came with navy shantung trousers and espadrilles, the Riviera vibe came...

    “In the Seventies, the mavericks were coming out with a new energy, influencing people in a positive way, breaking the rules in a positive way, just like today. We have new values coming up, like sustainability,”...

  • Etro Men's Spring 2020

    29 days ago - By WWD

    Desert, exploration and adventure might not be new themes for Etro. However, this season men's creative director Kean Etro discovered a new sense of youthfulness, lightness, and a sort of poetic romanticism that felt extremely charming. The brand's signature paisley motifs, the heritage stripes and the tactile textures exuded a sense of luxury which turned highly spontaneous and warm. The models walked over a big colorful mandala which represented the world, a nod to the multicultural approach which has always distinguished the Etro brand. But in a moment when cultural appropriation is one...

The exclusive, hyper-luxe garment was paired with a linen shirt treated with aloe vera to get the soft touch, black silk seersucker pants and loafers with hand-woven tassels, worn by a mannequin reclining on a vintage leather chair as one of a series of lifestyle installations created throughout the house's Milan...
