For her Fall/Winter 2012-13 Collection, Veronica Etro returns the House’s iconic Paisley to its noble roots. Drawing on a refined subtext of dressed-up gentility, the collection fuses tradition with innovation and history with contemporary desire. A new sartorial approach and artisan influence gives unexpected weight to the clothes, underscoring a deep sense of luxury. The look is resolutely feminine and newly seductive, yet charged with dandy elements borrowed from menswear. The result: a new tradition for today.
