Print Trends | Optical East

Etro AW13

Much like the discovery of Shangri-La, designers are exploring the art and culture of East Asia and applying it with a flourish across collections for both menswear and womenswear. We mentioned the Bhutan influence here in the ornate, trailing floral prints for Louis Vuitton’s mens collection. Now Etro takes this direction one step further by overlaying optical effects for a complex look that could almost feel at home in the late 60s.
