Etro is a label that grows stronger each season. Designed by Veronica Etro, the S/S 2011 collection is a searingly hot selection of '70s-inspired day-to-night wear.

Using Etro's heritage of clashing prints and paisley patterns, Veronica expanded on the print theme with the addition of tribal and African patterns mixed with mustard, olive and burnt-orange block colours fashioned into sumptuous jumpsuits, flares, asymmetrical dresses and maxis.

Accessories are in keeping with the That '70s Show theme: floppy hats, chunky wooden and leather platformed sandals and brass ethnic jewellry.

This masterful mix of bold prints and colours styled with neutrals results in a luscious, expensive-looking collection full of lust-worthy pieces for spring.
