Alessandro Dell'Acqua took the helm at Paris-based house, Rochas, just a year ago and has managed to find his way rather swiftly. Today, he turned out yet another completely lust worthy collection, complete with soft, feminine bow blouses and dresses, adorned in flower prints and embroidery, trimmed with ruffles, and velvet tops worn with brocade trousers, all paired with chunky platform sandals and colored socks.
Dell'Acqua, who succeeded Marco Zanini following his 5-year tenure, showed a collection that was "very in tune with ... Milan. Playing with the currently popular vocabulary. The collection is most successful, however, if you ignore the look and go for individual items," per our trusted (and anonymous) critic, who you can follow on Twitter at @ndakogboya.
As for the designer's reflection on the collection, Dell'Acqua to the AP: "I started with the winter garden mixing with the lightness, the effortlessness, the younger situation, the femininity and the sensuality. I want to mix the colors, material, very light and just a little summer situation but in the winter mood."
