Etro fashion house offered an array of loose-fitting hippy chic clothes with new variants of its signature paisley prints at Milan Fashion Week on Friday.

The show at a former skating rink in Italy's business capital was inspired by the foliage of Indo-China and Ottoman metalwork, Etro explained in a note.

The paisley patterns of the dresses were arranged in a splintered patchwork -- like exquisitely tailored quilts.

The fit was loose and baggy and the collection had waistcoats, sleeveless vests and kaftan-like overcoats.

Designer Veronica Etro said she was aiming to create the mood of "a voyage that is layered with exoticism, femininity and luxury, and that literally shines with summer's optimism."

The big innovation was the use of metal with hand-hammered metal squares embroidered onto tulle or knitted onto suede, cotton and satin ribbon.

Bold colours like lemon, coral and navy blue were mixed up with more earthy ones like khaki and sage, giving the impression of a blend of land and sea.
