Etro's Caramel Peacock Fall 2011 RTW

This collection reminded me of a cozy Dandy.  The looks contained lots of patterns.  They ranged from  ditsy prints, pale paisleys to stripes and glen plaids.  The color palette contained multiple shades of caramel, browns, chocolate with pops of peacock blue.  Jackets played on different lengths, shorter double-breasted jackets to elongated lean coats.

There were embellishments that you would usually associate with womenswear, but in this collection, looked appropriate.  Dainty tucks and ruffles on shirts, contrast tabs and plackets. Accented bow ties, elaborate scarves.  A lot of the models carried big, over-sized bags of rugged leather with pops of color.

This runway show did not look feminine, but I had a hard time picturing men outside of Europe putting these looks together.
