Milan Fashion Week: Etro checks off all the 1970s trends

September 26, 2010 | 11:04 am


With a specialty in prints, Etro was well-positioned to take on spring's '70s revival. And this collection, at Milan Fashion Week, had all of the elements -- bohemian maxi-dresses, peasant blouses, jumpsuits and wood platform shoes.

Each piece was a canvas for Etro's famed textiles, which had a bolder look this season, more akin to something you would expect to see from Diane Von Furstenberg in her 1970s heyday. (Think bright colors, tribal and geometric.)

But it wasn't all flow-y hippie chick. There were also some strong tailored pieces, including a khaki pantsuit with flared, high-waist pants that could have come straight out of Mary Tyler Moore's closet.
