Collection S/S 2015
Etiqueta Negra for man
The collection ETIQUETA NEGRA polo & sportswear S/S2015 continues to keep faith with the two subjects that inspire the brand from its origins: The game of polo and the world of vintage car racing, with a new tribute to the deeds of Tazio Nuvolari.
But the game of Polo does not live only during the stages of the match, but also during the breaks, in the moments of relax and socialization in the lounge of exclusive polo clubs, where there is space for the “daywear” of ETIQUETA NEGRA of polo & sportswear for a sporty, relaxed and refined total look.
Polos in piquet and jersey with original dyes and spraying, fleeces and light tricots, shirts in micro-check or in delicate ton sur ton floral patterns, or in linen with breast pocket, combined with chino pants, shorts or 5-pocket denim, together with garments with bright colours like Catalan red, spring green, yellow grapefruit, flamingo pink, which refer to a “preppy look” revisited in an easy-chic way, for a daywear with a strong and distinctive character.
The tribute of ETIQUETA NEGRA to the world of vintage racing cars, even for the next S/S 2015 season, celebrates the deeds of Tazio Nuvolari, remembering the victory of the R.A.C. Ulster Tourist Trophy achieved in Ireland in 1930 by the Mantuan driver on board of an Alfa Romeo 6 C.
The collection is wide and characterized by old dyeing and spraying treatments with fade effects, that give to shirts, polos, fleeces and outerwear a very appealing vintage look.
The game of Polo is strongly present in the most sports part of the collection that, through graphics, colours, patches and embroideries, celebrate the teams of three countries in particular: Argentina, Great Britain and Italy. The strong recall of the game of Polo is evidenced by the colours blue, red and white, which, with the addition of the green, pay tribute to this sport with extremely modern techniques of graphics and printing, gazing toward the future without denying the past, in a mix of innovation and tradition, with details that recall the processing techniques of “matra”, the typical Argentine saddle-clothes that characterize some of the under-collars of the polos and shirts.
Fleeces, t-shirts and outerwear complete the sports package, along with the classic polo pants in white, characterized with a new label in metal, a new hallmark of the brand used also for other garments in the collection.

The collection is wide and characterized by old dyeing and spraying treatments with fade effects, that give to shirts, polos, fleeces and outerwear a very appealing vintage look. The use of chess pattern recalling the world of racing cars is recurrent with allover prints or with details on the interior trims or on the under-collars. Also the symbol of the four-leaf clover, reminding of Ireland, is recurrent on the outerwear too, with sideband and chest pocket inspired to the drivers’ typical overalls.
The tones are neutral and dusty: from ivory to light blue, from grey to yellow, the lucky colour of the “Flying Mantuan”.
Etiqueta Negra for woman
Feminine but with a clear sporty attitude, the capsule collection “Luxury Sport” for this season is renewed in colours and graphics. Numbers are always present, bigger on the t-shirts and more discrete on the polos, made of sequins, Swarovski crystals, beads ton sur ton on green, yellow, pink and indigo garments.Innovative and special transparency effects are obtained with wise treatments and corrosion techniques that give even to the more sporty items, such as the sweatshirts, great femininity.
The polos and the shirts, real passpartout for any occasion and any moment of the day, offer fitting, patterns, fabrics and details that are renewed each season. The outwears are really fanciful, to the jackets in twill, in honeycomb and in light jersey with “cocoon” volumes, a few pieces are added with a metallic effect obtained thanks to skillful twist with raffia yarns, and a selection of light down jackets ideal for the transition between the two seasons.
