It's the third season for Alessandro dell'Acqua at Rochas and the designer seems to be more and more at ease at the house, which is celebrating 90 years in 2015. From backstage and alongside the runway, Paris Modes' Sophie de Champsavin and Natalia Grgona share their impressions on the presentation.
For this anniversary, the designer reworks several of the label's very visual codes in his own manner -- the bow, the heart-shape neckline, polka dots and even the famous embroidered swallows -- approached by dell'Acqua in a delicate and luxurious way. Oversize volumes are seen in the first models with materials like boiled cashmere and double cashmere. The waist is belted, and the bottoms of the oversized dresses and coats are slightly flared.
Bows are worn tight around the neck and are made in the same textures as the pieces; polka dot belts mix with tweed, as well as tulle. Lightness takes over with the black baby-doll dresses, which breathe transparency and sensuality.
Worth a closer look: the huge sunglasses with lingerie elastic.
