The collection brought together the best pattern cutting, innovative use of materials and a whole lot of style!
This was an unbelievably beautiful collection that with it soft vintage tones against vivid oranges, peaches and emerald green. The chiffons in this collection had been layered together, creating a shape that was so beautiful and soft; you would of mistaken it for feathers.
The jackets had a sharp silhouette with beaded shoulders or were sleeveless, creating a very feminine touch to a tailored item.
The dresses were loose with exaggerated hips, with the most amazing underarm seaming, that made the dresses drape so beautifully on the body.
The menswear was very innovative and refreshing! The collection featured typical masculine garments: trilby, parker and suit jacket. But the shapes, proportion and embellishment set it apart! The trilby’s were in muted tones, with the chiffon embellished on to create the look of petals. The collection featured a ‘crushed’ linen, that had a great ‘masculine’ touch to it. This was used in creating jackets with a sheer inserts. Beautiful!
Waistcoats were combined with jackets to create a longer length jacket, which looked amazing.
John Rochas’s collection had so much charm and tenderness that was combined with strong silhouettes, breath taking!
