Etro AW11 Collection

Designer Veronica Etro's inspirations for her AW11 collection are antique carpets, tapestries and embroidery.
The prints have a faded look as though aged with time.

The carpet prints are reversed to reveal seaming and their weaves. Fluffy long wool resembles fur ........
.......while knitted tufts on a 3-D striped sweater look like pelt..

Wrap dresses twist around the neck and torso in layers.

The colour palette is of faded burnt and rust tones.
Nylon lurex feature in both transparent and dense versions giving the illusion of a liquid surface.

The juxtaposition of different materials and weights is essential to this season's key look.
Shiny printed iridescent lurex is paired with hairy tweeds or tartans, silk is paired with silver metal work, heavy wool contrasts with shimmering nylon.
