If you were around in the ’90s, you remember that goth influences were a huge trend for the decade. Givenchy took the ’90s throwback that many designers have illustrated for the spring and summer 2011 season and kicked it up a notch with sheer panels of black that added a noir feel to the collection. Texture made the dark color that dominated the collection interesting. Sheer fabric hung from floor-length jackets and over pants with exposed zippers at the hips. Leopard peeked from lapels and hefty leather vests will add an edge to anything in your closet.
There was a definite grunge thread that kept the collection cohesive. The mix of high necklines, drain pipe pants, leopard, swatches of flowing sheer fabric made it a collection that will set the tone for a glamorous take on the ’90s staples that are sure to make their way into our wardrobes next season.
