Etro Fall Winter 2010 Mens Accesories, Bags And Shoes
Yet again, Etro sends out a collection of very charming and optimistic mens accessories for Fall Winter 2010. Adhering to the brand's signature multi-coloured paisley prints and cheery colours, Kean Etro also injects subtle humour in the form of birds perched on tall felt hats, or cufflinks with iconography of owls and other cute animals. "The owl is the symbol of total knowledge and wisdom, and it was all about Dionysus and the myths behind all the types of creatures and their habitat." remarked Kean Etro, Creative Director of Etro.
Colour has always been the essence of the Etro's brand. For this season, we see hues of emeralds, burgundys, purples and turquoise, a most welcoming contrast to liven up the dull winter tones of greys and blacks.
Bags are made from quilted leather, plaid fabrics seemingly from men's tailoring, injecting a sense of debonair. Classic, nostalgic and refined.
For footwear, we see brogues, ankle boots in the most striking shades of purple velvet or emerald green, with bi-colour materials a recurring feature. I am especially fond of the latter, with the bi-coloured buckle strap riding style ankle boots being the stand out.
If you want some cheery attitude to accent an otherwise sombre winter wardrobe, Etro never fails to get back some colour and optimism into your style.
