Etro: Embraceable


What Men Wear in Winter 2015

This autumn, Kean Etro combines large-format tartan on velvet suits, tweed trousers, blousons and evening coats with paisley patterns, the family business’s trademark. To prevent the ensemble from becoming too overwhelming, the designer at times confined himself to only hinting at the pattern: he lets it peter out as if fleetingly painted or has it recede as a shadow behind the material. Despite their wild assortment of patterns, the looks are kept tonally subtle, in every shade of tobacco and leather. Silhouettes are smooth and fluent. The perfect understatement.
