The Etro man Fall/Winter 2015-16:

After analyzing the Fendi fashion show in the last post, now let´s analyze the runway of firm Etro, which presented us with an impeccable collection, where tasteful and elegance are presented through clothes hand painted with inspired designs in Italian art and under the concept of pictorial technique “trompe l’oeil”.

Undoubtedly, the highlights on the catwalk was the bomber jackets hand painted directly on finished clothes with motifs paisley, floral and artistic designs, as well as the coats decorated with three-dimensional effects and the pants with prints that appear and then fade. Moreover regarding materials, also highlights the plaids, the horizontal ribbed velvet enriched with matching color brushstrokes and the plain velvet (material used also in the collections of Alexander McQueen, Bottega Veneta and Dolce & Gabbana).


Regarding accessories on gateway Etro, worth mentioning the maxi scarves with various designs printed, the shoes with contrasting applications and the maxi bags decorated with the same designs, materials and colors of the garments.

After all fashion shows which were presented last month, it has been hard work to choose among so many brands and fashion famous designers to develop these post, so I decided to choose based on the more elaborate prints and the more fabrics difficult to illustrate, in order to show my technique and enhance my skills. I hope you liked it!
