Many of us have used lockdown as a time to finally get around to decluttering our wardrobes, discovering forgotten pieces left buried at the back. Menswear Creative Director, Kean Etro, is no exception. His designs for Etro’s fall menswear collection represent a personal tapestry of rediscovered fabrics and ideas. Recycled wool is reimagined as a maxi sweater, archival silk linings are transformed into peeping shirt collars, while the fashion house’s vintage upholstery textiles are crafted into quilted jackets.
Light shone through the live streaming of the fashion show. Set in an abandoned industrial space, glowing rays streamed through its large, panelled windows. Models draped in a bold clash of patterns and colours were dazzled by these strips of sunlight as they strode down the runway. The collection is as “a message of hope and faith,” Etro explains, a reminder that “the sun always shines after a storm.”
