Etro-ordinary Glamour


Although I own a bag by Etro (a crazy oversized structured pony-hair bag crossed, inconceivably, with edelweiss), I have yet to purchase a piece of clothing from this wonderfully creative Italian company.

I especially love Etro’s burnt velvets, but would be equally happy with the dress above, which manages to combine a raffia vibe with that of fine metals, all the while looking utterly wearable. (And I also like the model’s freshly washed flowing locks . . .)

That really is an extraordinary dress. It looks as though it's composed of dozens of interlocking rings of metal, any of which could be free to rotate independent of the others. And yet it still maintains a great shape for the model.

I need a dress like this too.

That is an interesting dress - not liking that fringed neckline though.

Thanks for the daily dose of fashion. That is an interesting dress, isn't it? I wonder if it would itch?

This is not my favorite but I do love Etro's prints and rich colors.

I always wonder about the staying power of raffia. I love it, but I worry . . . .
