MFW: Etro Autumn/Winter 2017 Collection

The Etro F/W 17 collection showcased at Milan Fashion Week: Men’s


The Etro Fall/Winter 2017 collection was heavily inspired by the Himalayan region and the and its mountainous intensity. Designer, Kean Etro, stated: “It’s about the sacredness of the mountains…mixing the idea of climbing and ascendere: ascent.”

Influence was also drawn from the French novel Mount Analogue by René Daumal. The novel explores an ‘allegorical mountaineering expedition to enlightenment’.

These inspirations are reflected in the collection through the functional designs and the intricate detailing. The garments vary from shimmering velvet tailored suits to more technical outerwear; a compromise of functionality and ornate aesthetics. Knitwear is etched with mountains and jackets with images of varied references to nature. Double-breasted jackets are secured by unconventional fastenings; modern tailoring with touches of exploration.

The colour palette changes from dark tones of greys and browns to bright highlights of yellows, greens and flashes of reds. Etro plays with the skill of heavy patterned pieces clashing with minimal block colours to create balanced looks as a whole. Stand out pieces include pretty much all the outerwear and the kilt- a garment, which he has supposedly always wanted to bring into a collection.
