Et tu, ETRO?

Etro is one of those labels that flies under the radar.
A theme contradictory to their bold design style.

Founder Gimmo Etro established the Etro label in 1968.  
As a leading designer of high-end textiles, Etro supplied couture houses including Armani & Lacroix before 
expanding into ready-to-wear in the 1990s. 
The Etro Family
Today Etro remains a family run business 
upholding its well-earned reputation for 
rich colorful fabrics, wild prints & signature bohemian style.

Love it or hate it. Where do you stand?

  21. I have long been an ardent fan of all things "Etro" so much so our firstborn, regardless of gender was apt to be named after the fashion house. I especially adore their hidden details which are a private luxury far from envious eyes: waistbands lined in aqua paisleys; hems turned up with fuchsia

  22. that last dress is super amazing, fantastic!
