Spring/Summer 2011 Trend Report: 70s

07/02/2011 12:58 | Updated 22 May 2015

The mood: In a return to the decade of disco, the spring/summer 2011 collections saw vibrant colour, flared trousers and flamboyant fringing hit the catwalk. Both denim and suede were dominant this season, while bold, ethnic prints also made reference to the glamorous era.

The must haves: Wide leg trousers and platform heels. Derek Lam kept the look chic and simple by pairing flared jeans with crisp white shirts and denim t-shirts, while the 70s feel was exaggerated at Louis Vuitton with retro prints in rich colour ways.

MyDaily tip: Complete your outfit with a low-slung, shoulder bag, as seen at Roberto Cavalli and Etro. Crotcheted or fringing embellishment will make it feel all the more 70s inspired.

The look was relaxed but the inspiration hailed back to the 70s at Derek Lam's show. Denim on denim, playsuits and a suede pencil skirt emphasised the retro feel.
