Don't worry, I'm no sheep! However I do see value in sharing and learning opinions to broaden an already receptive mind. Why give your opinion if you can't take one as well?
Etro is the first collection I've viewed where I see a mixed bag as to if it is a success or not. Where Vogue and The Fashion Spot give Veronica Etro a good review, sites such as Style.com and WWD are confused by the collection.
Lack of cohesiveness is the unanimity....and I can see it. The looks went from kaleidoscope prints to sharp leather looks, then back to prints but this time on wool than velvet. The hard edge she took this season disbanded her previous inspirations of softer lines and an adversity to the digital age. Take a peek:
Let's look at the trees instead of the forest though, ok? I like this collection solely for the fact that I can see myself wearing a LOT of this. Those military jackets would be a staple for me, I would totally wear the purple cut-out dress above for a fancy dinner, and those prints would work well with my already basic-stocked wardrobe.
THIS JACKET IS FULL OF YES. AS IN YES, BE ON ME.
Something tells me that Anna Dello Russo might wear the yellow/black number above next season and look TEN times better in it than me!
Alright, the rest of the collection is under the jump. Let me know what you think, as I value your opinions as well! Is this Etro, or OH NO?
