John Rocha AW14
You can always trust a John Rocha show to punt out ladylike looks with a certain ethereal quality, and this season he gave us that in spades. With uber voluminous silhouettes and mega hats fashioned out of organza, it reminded me of a scene from Hello Dolly.
His palette, although predominantly morbidly black, still looked uplifting and modern thanks to his use of multiple textures. The oversized ruffles on dresses in his signature georgettes, chiffons and organzas, made them seem light and elegant. Whilst his use of hand crochets, appliqued velvet floral details and cutwork on various pieces, lifted the looks to ‘artwork’ status.
Some of these pieces looked comfortable on the catwalk, but if you ditched the top to toe look and cherry picked certain items from his collection, there were certainly a few party ready items to be had.
I loved this floral appliquéd number…
Whilst the ruffle details on these looks were seriously eye-catching…
The crochet work was mixed up with cut work in patent glazed felts and leathers…
Hilary Alexander was certainly busy documeting her fave looks in the FROW.
