Mr. Ken Etro becomes more ambitious than ever in this his last parade for the Fall-Winter 2012/2013 in the Fashion Week in Milan. An ode to opulence, wealth of fabrics and materials, to the sophistication and accuracy of finish, the varied patterns.
The Italian firm intones the mea culpa of an extravagance of tradition, perfect for a contemporary man who is not without a point 'in time’. The next season more than ever, as always will be.
Blankets and shawls; takes the homewear
As if you were lying on the living room of their own home, take blankets and woolen shawls of Cashmere , in some even fringe , and there are also multi-up prints. The most iconic of all the horse, a symbol 'Pegasus', that makes the difference and is a starting point in this, a very ornate collection. The eagle, the other animal fetish collection.
In the early earthy tones dominate output - heavy presence of bone, cream, beige, snuff, sand, off-white something very risqué ... - presented in costume tweed with subtle pictures Prince of Wales, in sweaters swan neck, on outerwear, and even blazers and Levites.
These tones are added acid notes arid, yellow and orange-red, or lavender with lily ... some first looks for the day the day of a very urban dandy. Not to mention the turquoise and aqua and other blue-green, also the klein though more timidly, which swept the season as star shades, cherries usually ideal to accentuate the faint autumn sets.
Returning to the idea of blankets, in the same vein, some shelters in the form and presence of large blankets, or quilts that could well cover the beds with more style. A paisley fabric weighing XL and well highlighted in black and white outfits.
It is in this stretch of the fashion show where the walkway turns itself bicolor although those with many nuances. Outfits total prints up and down very good color combo that shamelessly dare to mix the above paisley with a thousand rays, staying him, Ken, wider than long.
Following this bold splashes gray scale velvet tailoring sets - usually dress with contrasting trim - damask, fully printed, finished with a very bright, but just as we are one smooth, is to compensate.
In a 'technical wink’, outerwear features as the version hack padded vest these sartorial looks so stylish and wearable and / or wearable. Also, the feathers, this time short form is presented in printed fabric, which is that all indications are that next year we will be well filled with nuance.
Ceremony block party
Banishing myths and urban legends of art, clothing rescues Etro considered (as) of ceremony and included in the daily dress. What nonsense! If you walked all the knights palm in clubs of smokers, for example, dressed in frock coats, why not do it now.
This suit is brought to the street, and not only encourages its use in ceremonies, and turned around a Must. To bring on the next event to invite you, you need it. The same applies to the styles of party, wearing a tuxedo becomes more normal, not necessarily in soirees, we accept parties at home.
In this same thread incorporates cumber band to looks at night that does not necessarily have to be black tie. Sashes are being combined with straight cut pants cloth as both more cold woolen clothes. Some of these corselets not are more baroque, converted almost wide belts, which raise the waist and shot full of applications and jewels of very dark tones.
The picture and the big players fret
The picture is one of the favorite patterns, presented as I said above in the classic format 'Prince of Wales', of window-type or variety of tartans. The grid becomes protagonist of these outfits so stately that once again make their nods to the United Kingdom.
Besides these are combined with other shamelessly prints and even loop the loop overlap in a single garment, for example flowers on tables. The beloved patchwork for nothing is forgotten, making us apart is that back in the house is never left. Special mention deserve the great ridged sweaters that are repeated throughout much of the show.
Details to fall in love
Pointed and rounded toe shoes (a loafer very dress that seems slipper) that combines skin wefts, or patent leather with velvet and again a lot of play with the stamping. Also do not forget the boots to type Chelsea and pointed shoes with laces a derby in the Italian.
Love the scarves, shawls with fringes the above ultra-long in silk, in wool or peach skin fabric accessories fit out two stars. On one hand the exquisite collection of bags, all to match the style, such as Gucci, the looks are complete, nothing is random.
And secondly, the wide-brimmed hats that exaggerated, many of them bathed entirely by small feathers - as well as some shirts, and even American feathers ... not to mention half part silk ties, some feathers - that create a tiling effect.
As beautiful notes about Etro hairs have seen everything from spectacular hairstyles very slightly curved movements, making deep Tupes, some higher than others, through fringes.
Straight, curly or wavy hair all have their moment of glory. But yes, also like Gucci, faces are close shave, clean men's faces glow with light itself.
