New York: Swedish designer Anna Larson has shown her collection in New York for the past three seasons, all of which have gravitated to the darker side of fashion. However, despite keeping her palette monochrome for S/S 11, Larson used a lighter hand for these draped separates, infusing her usual gothic grunge creations with a more bohemian direction. Strings replaced straps, with drawstrings hanging from tunic dresses and tops, while laser cut slashes deconstructed pants and shorts. The season’s essential knit, the crop top, was the boxiest piece at Erro, amid loose trousers, crochet cardigans and elongated leggings. Tarnished metal jewelry and hair accessories completed the presentation, keeping the look more crafty than sharp. Although gothic styles are still important for spring, designers like Larson are infusing them with a new softness.
