Etro - Menswear collection Autumn/Winter 2017/18 in Milan (with interview)

Designer : Kean Etro Inspiration : Sky is no limitCollection : Casual, chic and studied, whilst respecting the bohemian spirit of the label. Nature is at the heart of the collection and more precisely the mountain universe. The suits are worn with turtle neck jumpers for more comfort and the trousers are opened on the leg. Focus on : materials with dévoré velvet and a number of prints with the elaboration of the new technical fabrics. The jumpers and the puffa jackets whose motifs are inspired by nature and the universe. To note : the clothes which are closed like kimonos with clips or accessorized with drawstrings. Interview with Kean Etro :If you think about universe, ‘uni-verse’, which is one way, there’s only one way, so when you look up at the sky I think they call it that because we should look at it a bit more. And when you stay in a state of meditation of just looking at nature from above then you realise how tiny you are. On the collection you will see this sporty approach but mixed with 17th century Himalayan designs, so you will have gold thread, and I printed this monochromatic golden leaf using clay, ‘terra’, earth. We invent new techniques, we haven’t given them names yet, because they came out and people say “what is this, I don’t know”, it’s like a glue, earth and glue, and you get like a skeleton effect on it, but it’s the old velour, the old velvet.
