This is crazytown. I want it.
Vogue calls Etro, the eponymous house of Veronica Etro, “a kind of Italian answer to Dries Van Noten, which anyone who’s been reading for a while knows I LOVE.1
Too often runway looks don't translate to an actual wardrobe. I actually think this look is something that would work BETTER in real life. Camel is a fantastic color for fall. Leopard print is Grande Dame fun. Though I would switch out that fugly shirt with a grey crewneck tee or fitted sweater.
Easy things to look out for this fall include: menswear, animal prints, leopard print (specifically), camel (the color), jewel tones, fur (as previously mentioned), capes!!, military-inspired (again), big necklaces (again), embellishments.
How great is this?!?! LOVE. Note how the lining matches those beautiful shoes. I want the whole damn thing.
They’re all here in Etro. Give the whole collection a look, you’ll see what I say is the truth.
Holy trend alert: We've got fur, menswear, mixed prints, leopard print all making a showing.
They’re all also things that are either A) already in your closet or B) totally thriftable.
Gorgeous color. Awesome necklace. Cool, embellished tights. Check. Check. Check.
1. Okay, admission: Dries’ Fall 2010 was not my favorite thing that crazy Belgian’s ever done. That said, I still love love love him, want very terribly to have anything of his, want very terribly to get drunk at lunch with him. Also, even though as a whole I was not drooling over this rounds offerings, Look 43 was probably my FAVORITE thing that happened in the entirety of Fall 2010, anywhere.
I just think this is a really cool look.
