Disaronno Wears Etro

Disaronno


For a fourth consecutive year, Disaronno, the most consumed Italian liquor in the world has collaborated with a leading Italian fashion brand to bring you a limited edition bottle, designed to reflect the aesthetic trademark of the brand. After previous collaborations with Moschino, Versace and Cavalli, Disaronno has joined forces with fashion brand Etro.

The design of Disaronno Wears Etro draws inspiration from the brand's Autumn/Winter 2016 collection, a continuation of the house's signature paisley design that has been its trademark since 1981. The end result is a true collector's item.

Veronica Etro, Creative director of the Womenswear collection, said, "Paisley, emblem of the Tree of Life, and the sinuous palmetto with its cashmere design from which the Etro tradition blooms; it not only represents the Date Palm that provides food and shelter, but also serves as an iconographic link between the East and West through its cultural migrations, from Indian prints to Celtic embroidery.

The new Disaronno Limited Edition bottle takes on the look and color of paisley, exploring traditional values tied to the art of design done by hand, like that of tattoos. Disaronno wears Etro in both the name of tradition and experimentation, in seeking out new and original solutions."
