S/S 2017 Etro "Jasmin" Runway Graphic Printed Silk Dress

The Spring 2017 Etro collection was one of the strongest the house had in recent years. The key pieces, including this dress, were sold out or waitlisted around the globe despite their high price tags. The original ticket cost on this dress was a cool $3790 before taxes and it is incredibly well made. Luke Leitch of Vogue said of the spring show: "This season, Veronica Etro returned again to that anchor, the house paisley, around which to alchemize a wonderfully rich portmanteau that should seriously tempt new members. Although Edith Sitwell starred on Etro’s mood board, it was Talitha Getty’s footprint that seemed strongest, stamped on looks that played roughly textured leather and bead-trimmed caftans, ponchos, and cloaks against silk maxis, mid-length dresses, jumpsuits, and pants. A monochromatic opening saw interplays of stripes and paisley that sometimes seemed touched by the geometry of Art Deco....This was a lovely exercise in eclecticism given life by that paisley palm seed."

This was Look 2 in the show and is fabulous. I actually own the other version of this dress (Look 12) and can attest to how wonderful it is on. The top portion drapes over the bust and has a deep V at both the front and back. A tie at the back neck holds it in place so you feel very secure in it despite the deep V. I love the tassels that finish these ties - you can leave them draped down the back or bring around to the front as a little built in "necklace". From under the bust to just above the hip you have a top stitched, more structured corsetting effect that cinched you in and give the dress shape. It is a little bit big on the mannequin so I included my own photo so you can see how this shapes you. The skirt flows from under there in a pretty soft expanse of silk. The silk is a beautiful quality twill and this version feels even more versatile then the color version as you have no limits to what you can pair it with color wise. Unworn. Excellent condition.
