PFW SS16: Rochas

True to form, Alessandro Dell’Acqua presented a confection of the hyper-feminine kind at last nights Rochas show. Inspired by Gala Dalí, the eccentric and provocative wife of Salvador, the saccharine elements of the collection were complimented by vibrant tropical brocade and dramatic draping.
Incorporating every conception of sheers, embroidered bra-lets, dramatic costume jewellery and the occasional sports vest were all poking out under ghostly layers. Pink and pistachio pastel lacquer packed a sweet punch combined with louder lace, while transparent blouses featured detailed cuffs and jewel encrusted shirt collars forming flirty eyes.
Delicate yet quirky, needlework featured giraffes in the savanna sun. Playful and over-the-top in the best way possible, this was a collection nothing short of Gala herself.
