Silk dresses and shirts showered in tassels, floppy vibrant hats, thick heeled buckle sandals and flat gaucho boots for Etro’s route to adventure.
For Spring-summer 2017 Veronica Etro brought together “a group of free wheeling soulful women who dauntlessly explore the most adventures corners of the world” from Sahara desert to trekking through an urban metropolis to to Led Zeppelinֿ’s “Kashmir” in Tribal embroideries and ethnic patterns.
Etro’s classic paisley print was given a psychedelic twist and the bold stripes were also cut into the traditional persian pattern.
The revival of the kaftan in oversized jacquards and silk lending the air of travel lust with bold tribal striping provided the collection it’s bohemian heart, Berber style hooded capes and silver clasps added to the wanderlust mood, while motorcycle pants and the stretch wool jog bra were giving the collection it’s sporty vibe.
Piles of chunky metal bracelets and rings or ceramic pendant necklaces, the highlight of the collection was no doubt the jewelry.
The makeup look was Inspired by Nastassja Kinski in tess, a girl on the verge of womanhood. The models wore rose on their cheeks with M.A.C Cosmetics “Melba” blush and dusted “studio careblend” powder. The face as well as the lips were softly consoled with “studio finish” concealer to take down the skin’s natruel color, the brows were bold with the help of my favorite “Haute and Naughty” brown mascara which was also applied to the outside flase lashes.
Many thanks to M.A.C for sharing this experience with me!
