Rochas brought sunshine to Paris Fashion Week in a ready-to-wear collection blooming with garden florals and femininity.
Creative Director Alessandro Dell’Acqua elaborates on the cheerful autumn/winter line.
Alessandro Dell’Acqua: “The flowers, the colours, the romanticism is like the positivity and for me in this moment it’s very important. For Rochas in the past it’s a very dramatic situation, not a dramatic collection, now I want the lightness mood.”
Dell’Acqua sent models down a floral carpet catwalk in delicate pussycat-bow blouses trimmed with ruffles, but paired the feminine silhouettes with chunky platform sandals.
Black jackets and skirts were colourfully embroidered in tender winter garden flowers and swanky trousers were revealed in macramé bottle green.
The clock was turned back with knee socks in bold block colours and swinging bell-bottoms in a seventies-inspired palette of forest green and burnt orange, while a cherry blossom pattern was woven through the collection – from sandals to skirts and winter coats – making for a unified show.
Based in Paris, Rochas is celebrating its 90th year.
