Trend Report: Sheer Horizontal Banding

Select looks from Pedro Lourenco S/S '11, Valentino Spring '11 Couture, and Jean Paul Gaultier Spring '11 Couture

Pedro Lourenco was one of my favorite breakout designers for the spring 2011 season, so I was pleased to see that one of the main themes of his collection, sheer panels, was employed by other designers for the spring couture shows.  My favorite version is the short Valentino dress (bottom left), because the use of lace for the opaque strips really goes well with the delicacy of the sheer pieces.  Overall, it may not be the most wearable trend in the world, but it sure looks pretty on the runway.
