Spring 2012: Etro
FirstView View Gallery
The swanky get-ups! The retro bobs! The Deco-y designs! It’s official: The Jazz Age is in full swing--tapping and shimming its way onto the catwalks of Gucci, Ralph Lauren, Marc Jacobs and most recently, Etro. With a blitz of dizzying, graphic prints and can’t-miss-it coloring, Veronica Etro sought to reinvent the 20s by tweaking retro speakeasy dresses into modern day marvels: drop-waist frocks skimming the knee and cut-out at the hip; fringed flapperware with down-to-there necklines; and embellished dual-tone concoctions with multitier, pleated hemlines. Quietly woven into the mix of evening attire were a smattering of casual daytime looks like a wrestling singlet-cum-monokini, tassled kimono, and metallic fringed vest atop a nude bralette and belly-botton grazing ankle trousers.
