“The bright voids of [Kazimir] Malevich’s paintings, flowers from the kimono aesthetic and the Etro paisley tradition” are the elements that creative director Veronica Etro said she mixed and matched to create the vibrant patterns of this sophisticated collection.

Moving away from the free-spirited, bohemian theme of the brand’s spring lineup, Etro approached pre-fall with a more urban mood in mind, resulting in an array of looks easily worn in real life. While a fluid silk top and matching wide silk pants were hyper-chic, an intarsia fox, lapin and mink fur jacket worn over a crepe de chine shirt and practical viscose cadi pants felt young and cool.

Feminine plissé — used on a silk cadi maxiskirt matched with a stretch viscose color-blocked sweater, as well as on a crepe de chine dress — added volume to the collection’s otherwise linear and elongated silhouettes.
