Mahabharata Inspires Etro's 2013 Spring/Summer Men's Collection
Etro, known for it's paisley prints, has stayed true to its signature stamp. But its 2013 spring summer collection, complete with the rustle of silks and turbans, takes inspiration from the Mahabharata.
Called Playsley, the collection has seemlessly blended in Indian character without drifting from Etro's Made in Italy design ethics. The rustle of silks, the turban and the reinterpretation of Playsley evoke the Indian spirit of the epic verses of the Mahabharata - a self-loading, self-charging mechanism in which everything moves in a clockwise direction.
About the Collection
The silhouette here is soft and comfortable, contrasting with the discipline of the tailoring details and the bold cuts. It is teamed with Madras patterns or has the texture of memory, of a pencil sketch. This collection uses silk and yarn-dyed, treated cottons.
We like the jackets that can be worn pilgrimage or the perfect look for a party, paired with loose trousers, narrowing around the ankles. The shirts are long and comfortable.
The embroidery all by hand and the colour palette ranges from blue to white. They include autumnal shades faded by the sun, worn and dense, mixed together, with irregular bright appearances.
And while some shoes make for the footwear in this collection, you cannot miss the kolhapuru-esque sandals.
