Men's fashion: Etro for Spring-Summer 2014
Today, we'll take a look at Etro's Spring-Summer 2014 Menswear collection, presented during Milan Men's Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2014 (June 2013).
Brand's designer Kean Etro was inspired by Zorro, gauchos of the Argentinian pampas and the Mexican riding tradition of Charreria for this collection and as usual prints were the key element. The theme has a Mexican desperado, mariachi air, guitars, some of the models have painted on mustaches.
Collection includes patchworked materials, leather shirts and jackets, canvas trench coats, cotton twill pants, three piece suits and collared shirts, bandana-like prints, leather embroidery, Eco-dirty tinting techniques, mandarin orange and daisy yellow shades, charro-boots and cowboy wing tip loafers, hand-embroidered linen scarves and leather guitar cases.
'They [Etro's big clients from Japan, Russia and China] ask for it. Leather is appreciated for its masculinity, representing the courage that comes from a man's heart. You have to love in order to be courageous', Etro said in an interview backstage, commenting on the western motif.
Silhouettes are masculine - sculpted and cut close to the body. The Etro men's suit is always unconventional. For Spring-Summer 2014 it is cut in three pieces, plastered with intarsias, piped in suede or leather saddle stitching, lined in georgette silk, and layered over an un-done striped shirt.
So, enjoy this fashion art creations:
