Etro 2013 spring/summer is a tribute to Asian couture. For the collections upper silhouettes, inspiration was clearly taken from Japan’s Kimono and India’s sari while loose fitting pants were reminiscent of the attire from the modern martial arts practice of judo. Prints, playing tribute to oriental flora, fauna and the illustrations of traditional Japanese vases, revealed Etro’s diligent knack for reinventing traditional patterns. For fabrics, silk and light cotton were widely used creating an earthy feel throughout the collection. China’s famous actress Qin Hailu also attended the show.
