Etro gets intimate with Kate Moss

August 24th, 2015 |Posted by Irene Ojo-Felix

It’s a dark paradise for Etro‘s latest campaign for the Fall. The Milanese-based, paisley heavy brand relies on the wondrous talents of supermodel Kate Moss and milliner Nick Fouquet to bring their intimate vision of colder temps and opulent designs to life. The pair leisurely lounge amongst a cluster of luxurious patterns captured by the master eye of Mario Testino. Interior design and furnishing fabrics swirl throughout the collection that makes you feel right at home no matter the setting.

Photographer – Mario Testino (Art Partner), Stylist – Anastasia Barbieri (Art Partner), Hair – Christiaan, Makeup – Val Garland (Streeters London), Set Design – Jack Flanagan

Man, Oh Man!

January 17th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

Two menswear looks we loved and a couple we didn’t. Sound off in the comments and tell us what you’ve been into so far this season. Be sure to click on the photos to see the collections in full on NowFashion!

LOVE ITPRADA
With all the hoopla over actors filling out the finale of Prada‘s F/W collection, you may have overlooked the beautifully conceived collection. Miuccia’s masterful meditation on male power featured an array of memorable looks that treated the subject matter with humor. Football helmet prints on oh so serious top coats, denim sneaking into formal wear and a whole lot of  thoughtful nods to diplomats, dictators and military men of influence. Adrien Brody especially looked dapper in his red shades and fur – potential Oscar outfit? Time will tell.

HMMMM…VERSACE 
Versace refers to this particular pattern as floro-flague and we’re not sure if we love the audacity of it, or hate the very idea of such a thing. It is somewhat memorable though – even with that horrific lime green fur collar. We do admire River Viiperi‘s ability to look good in even the most outlandish pieces –  that has to count for something.

KIND OF WANT… – CALVIN KLEIN

Italo Zucchelli’s Calvin Klein collection was intended as a tribute to New York’s unique blend of modernism and tradition. Definitely a fitting idea and a sweatshirt with croc accents certainly encapsulates the concept accurately, but we’re still having a hard time imagining where exactly this sort of piece fits outside of the editorial pages. Where will you be wearing your exorbitantly priced croc hoodie? Other than the obvious answers of Le Bain, Equinox and in every Pitti Immagine Uomo street style picture taken next year.

OIC Etro

If you lost the sweater and dyed this violet you would have the ultimate performance wardrobe for Prince. Alas, these are not the purple one’s touring ensembles and as such we can find no logical excuse for this combination of elements. Orange velvet, a cowboy hat, one of Bill Cosby’s old sweaters – the mix is confusing and we usually like Etro’s unique melange of influences.
