Etro – Spring/Summer 2021 – Milan Fashion Week

September 30, 2020

Veronica Etro chose this season to celebrate Italy, for something that was right at her doorstep. Highly unusual for the most nomadic of fashion labels and for a designer who uses to travel around the globe to source inspiration for her collections.

It started during lockdown. Like everyone else I was at home, cleaning. And my mom and I restored an old record player and started listening to these old Neapolitan songs, and we were bewitched by the serenity, the timelessness, and the elegance. Then I started thinking about a trip I took in 2019 to Ischia, Capri, Naples, and Positano, and – maybe because we were so patriotic during that period – I thought, okay, let’s make the collection all about Italy

said Veronica Etro

An Italian summer was the theme of the lineup, which offered a lively, chic interpretation of the classic Riviera style. There were rope motifs, marine chains, anchors, seashells, summer stripes, sailboats but also super cropped and front-button skirts, paired with bikinis, ultra voluminous. A new hybrid character, the Pegasus-Triton, popped as the logo of T-shirts and cropped knits. There were also several nods across the border to Brigitte Bardot via marinière knits and the opening halter bra top and miniskirt.

With the Spring/Summer 2021 collection, Etro took a break from her past bohemian aesthetic and brought back a different, but authentic, face of the brand, its more bourgeois one.
