Favorite of the Day: Etro

The Etro show, like the Ralph Lauren show before it, looked to the 1920s for inspiration. But in this case, the people of that East Coast world of old and new money were traded in for a less serious bunch.

The shapes were evocative of that time. Swinging. Slinky. That taste of sex that would disappear once the Great Depression hit.

But throughout were the signature prints that are seen every season at Etro. They kept the clothes out of the realm of the costume and placed them in our time.
