Flirting With The Indigenous

Etro, Fall 11

I’m pleased to see that one of the season’s new ethnic motifs looks to the indigenous, by way of South West America. In New York there were a few accounts of this – Proenza Schouler with Santa Fe and Preen with a patchworked Arts & Crafts theme, while in London designers took a turn for handicraft. In Milan, Etro speaks to Native American inspiration with enticing geometric patterns as well as untamed furs, fringed blanket coats and a color palette of rust, cinnamon and taupe.
