Etro, founded by Gimmo Etro in 1968 continues to be a current and relevant brand. Known for their exquisite textiles and paisley patterns Etro's collection did not disappoint, with "It" model Delevingne walking and supermodel Joan Smalls closing the show. Guests were given a futuristic presentation with a drop screen showcasing kaleidoscope patterns on the back of the runway.

The collection featured modern overcoats, jackets and cut-out gowns with an array of period-patterned prints. The color palette included gold, burnt orange and assorted berry colors. The collection could be described as 'contemporary boho ultra-chic' but how the clothes are interpreted is the thrill of the fashion house's production. There are many artistic pieces to choose from and layering is not out of the question.

If you weren't a fan of the brand before this show may ignite your senses and convince you to purchase a piece this Autumn.
