Rochas AW14

A measured woman adorned with safety pins and pastel PVC for Alessandro Dell'Acqua's debut

Initial reaction:

A measured woman covered in safety pins and pastel PVC. 

A new era:

This was Alessandro Dell’Acqua’s first collection as creative director and felt very much like an exercise in exploring the boundaries between severity and romance, something he achieved. 

Clinical vs. couture:

Power blue PVC was set against heavy embellishments made up from silver safety pins, whilst sumptuous pink wools created airy A-line silhouettes, reminiscent of decades past. 

Hidden details:

Bat wings covered black evening dresses and adorned the side of tinted sci-fi glasses. 

A hint of perversion:

Found in the seemingly Allen Jones inspired ink black patent A-line skirts.
