Resort and Pre-fall collections have officially become personal favorites, the clothes are more wearable, the mood is less serious. A season ago (Fall 2014), I decided to stop reviewing shows and start having more fun with the collections. After giving it some thought, I couldn’t think of anything more amusing than dressing my dear little Sophie, my lovely alter ego, with the latest looks from the runway.
So far, the Resort 2015 collections have been smashing! There are lots of looks, garments and styles to choose from. As always, Christopher Bailey killed it for Burberry Prorsum, Dona Karan and her signature street wear for DKNY was as chic as chic can get. But there was this one collection that immediately caught my eye, Alessandro Dell’Acqua’s second one for Rochas.
I’ve been having an affair with the French brand (and the French) for a while now and this presentation did not disappoint. It was a delicate, floral affair. From the colors and fabrics to the shapes and cuts, everything screamed romance and nature. Dell’Acqua relied on the house’s classic codes but gave his garments a touch of modernity. Sophie’s favorite piece? The garden cocoon coat. She couldn’t wait to wear it and of course, show it to you!
Have a lovely afternoon,
