The calendar advancing into what is now June can mean a lot of things, but at least for this page it is the sight of advertising campaigns for autumn that truly captures the imagination. Enter Italian fashion house Etro, with its latest campaign starring a pair of Next beauties Grace Elizabeth and Hiandra Martinez. Photographed by Cass Bird and styled by George Cortina, the campaign picks up where it left off last season, albeit with a pivot toward New York City. Gone are the beaches from the previous edition, replaced instead by the din of Manhattan’s perpetually locked grid. This wandering Etro clan brings with it an elegance and sophistication that will serve it in good stead no matter in which port of call it docks. As it is, though Gotham provides the scenic backdrop into which Grace and Hiandra look well and truly home.
