We all know that India is a rich pool of inspiration for designers. Just how much is reflected in the recently concluded Menswear Fashion Week for the Spring/Summer 2013 season. We first reported that Dolce & Gabbana had done an entire collection inspired by Hindu warriors. Now, Italian luxury label Etro too has quite literally followed suit.

The brand which is known for its signature Indian-inspired paisley motif  sent down a collection inspired by the Hindu holy book the Mahabharata. Entitled ‘Playsley’ it comprised of silks, turbans, Madras checks and jewel tones. Check out the footwear, it looks  very reminiscent of our very own Kolhapuri chappals, don’t you think?

I get the vibe of Maharaja meets suave Italian man. What do you think about the collection?

Check out the entire collection below, it features some pretty trippy Indian classical music:
