Alessandro Dell’Acqua is a true romantic, pulling every ounce of flou and femininity out for his fall Rochas runway. As girls walked along a wallpaper floral carpet, even their most tailored coats, couldn’t hide the flounce of bow blouses, swish of silky skirts or ruffles and frills beneath.
The news here was delivered in sequins and velvet. And it was most powerfully given in a rich deep green which Dell’Acqua played against purple, lavender, peach, red, turquoise, pink and any number of other colors that were both perfect matches and slightly off in a good way.
Silhouettes were long and relaxed, a strip of ruffles or a high slit echoing a look’s fluid movement. Even more buttoned-up ideas, like a collared shirt, sweater and trouser combination, felt more wind-in-the-willows romantic when executed in velvet and textured goldy-pink.
Scrunched up socks worn with open-toed sandals and satin Mary Janes signaled a bohemian care-free attitude. And to wit, there were the expected pairings of print, pattern and texture that will appeal to women who tick the maximalist box.
Dell’Acqua’s evening pieces were in the same relaxed mood as his day wear (we spy those sock-and-sandal details). But laid-back glamour is hard to resist. Especially when dished out in green spangled flowers on a gauzy tunic or oodles of sequins cinched under a mega green fur.
