Rochas Spring/Summer 2016 ready-to-wear collection – Paris Fashion Week

Bold, decorative flashes of colour was the added ingredient that Rocha’s designer Alessandro Dell’Acqua used to set off the signature huge-volume styles that’s made the house such a hit in recent years.
 All the colours of the rainbow were used in silky sheens in an oversized, double-breasted coat, or, after, on a 20ies shift dress — riffing off the codes of the house founded in 1925 by the late Marcel Rochas. Giant bows came in burnt sienna, black and white and graced funky trapeze silhouette gowns.Pointy stilettos came with a large tulle puff in colours that each time mirrored hues used in the rest of the outfit.
Rochas has sometimes been compared to couture -or demi-couture- and in Wednesday’s show it was clear why — an incredible gathered floor-length gown in pale oyster-white with a dropped hem possessed a ravishing swagger as the model moved.
