MFW: Etro gets down to size

March 3, 2009 |  1:01 pm

Etro fall 2009 milan fashion week MILAN -- What the Etro collection lacked in big ideas it made up for in wearable clothes, beginning with perfectly cut, metallic-glazed blazers and pants cropped above the ankle, right on through to the airy chiffon gowns featuring the house's signature textiles translated into ribbons of print.

The fall season's surface-texture trend appeared on an amazing-looking multicolored silk fringe skirt and a bronze, one-sleeve dress with a studded leather cage effect and a tribal feel.
