Runway Report: Rochas SS16

Pure inspirationlady mystique, ultra-femininity and sensualityRochas Spring/Summer 2016 collection is the essence of a woman who knows how to love and to be loved.

Alessandro Dell’Acqua presented in Paris a full of romanticism – throwback to old-school couture collection.

Metallic jacquards in acidic hues, glossy patent leathers and magpie-worthy lapel decoration were found on swinging Sixties cuts. Also, romantic shirts, skirts and dresses in simple sporty shapes and satin brocade in a color palette marked by soft tones. We loved the sculptural bows; oversize black-and-white stripes; surf motifs… And the shoes! They showed that the dainty kitten heel is here to stay but gave it their spin with lace detailing in a bright array of colors.
