Are patterned tights a part of the 'punky feel' for next spring?
There is a definite feel of punk about the designs coming out for spring/summer 2011, it has been claimed.

Women shopping for patterned tights or fishnet stockings may find that prints like tartan are in, according to Oonagh Brennan, fashion director at Company.

She explained that there is lots of check and dogtooth prints around.

"There's been quite a lot of punk as well, it's really interesting colourful punk though, as opposed to moody dark punk – almost a bit of an early nineties feeling Vivienne Westwood-esque punk," Ms Brennan added.

She added that there is a lot of tartan mixing in with fluoros at the moment, which gives a modern touch to the traditional punk rocker look.

Christophe Decarnin, designer for Balmain, which recently revealed its summer 2011 styles, told the New York Times recently that he loves punk.
