There is a kind of dance in the design world over what the next “hip” animal will be. Seeing the Echino Fall 2011 collection, I imagine Etsuko Furuya popping and locking herself into the center ring and doing her classic moves. Birds. Deer. Owls. And everyone thinks, daaaaaamn, some say they’re played out now, but no one can do those like her. Then suddenly, she throws down an okapi. Bam! Deal with that. Cockatiels! Never saw that coming. Then she points at you as she retreats back into the crowd.
The Echino Fall 2011 collection is just arriving in stores now. It’s on the classic cotton-linen blend and includes a patchwork print and a border print. You have been served and it is on!
