The Givenchy Spring 2017 pre-collection takes the French luxury brand back to 90s subculture scenes, with looks making use of statement platform lace-up boots, rave-inspired face masks and streetwear styles.

Also included in the collection are styles that are more traditional for the brand, with a textured dress and jacket combination and another look that includes a coral pencil skirt and ruffled blouse. These examples are a few of the looks that contrast with the majority of the Spring 2017 collection however, as others feature more grungy combinations, graphic prints and leather. With this, the couture brand shows its competency in recreating subculture-inspired styles with a luxurious twist -- using clean cuts, elegant detailing and intricate bright patterns on some pieces.
