(AP) Etro shimmers for next summer, with metal accents embroidered into fabric and trimming fringe collars.


Veronica Etro's latest collection, previewed on Friday, the third day of Milan Fashion Week, had an ethnic flair with a cosmopolitan twist achieved by embroidering metal squares into tulle or knitting metal with suede cotton and satin ribbon.


Halter dresses are long and diaphanous, wrapping easily around the body and featuring scarf necks finished with metal fringe. Skirts have a sarong effect, but the show notes say they are in fact constructed. Pants, in suede or silk, are wide and cropped, and worn with square knit sweaters.


The color palette is mostly soft, allowing the traditional Etro paisley, even when set against contrasting patterns, to seem to melt into neutral monochromes like sage and peach. Stronger colors like coral and lemon contrast with black for a stronger statement.


The looks are finished with bleached silver accents on belts, bracelets and handbag straps. Sandals are flat or with a stiletto heel.
