The Robyn 'Call Your Girlfriend' video brings back platform sneakers, bright spandex and furry crop tops. They were big in the 90s and are making a comeback in 2011. Robyn, who returned to mainstream music in 2010 with the release of “Body Talk Pt.1,” has been taking this summer’s touring and festival scene by storm. Her comeback might have something to do with the recent move in fashion to vintage and retro styles from the 90s -- a style the singer is happy to embrace.

The music video for her latest single, 'Call Your Girlfriend,' has a very simple concept, but showcases the finest fashion trends of the 1990s. Swedish popstar Robyn is not alone, however, in bringing back the platform shoe look, as they’ve been popping up around the streets of Tokyo for the past year now.

Whether you like it or not, this popular look from the 90s is definitely making a comeback. Companies like Converse and Prada are already embracing the retro look once made popular by the Spice Girls. It’s only a matter of time before they hit the streets of Toronto and New York!
