The »new language« designer Marco Zanini has defined for ROCHAS naturally progresses into his first Pre-Autumn/Winter Collection with effortless and unconventional glamour. From the romantic, Swedish-inspired Spring/Summer 2011’s collection, ROCHAS for Pre-Autumn/Winter faces the Nordic winter with rigueur and unfussy elegance. Proportions are exaggerated in the length of a sleeve or the wideness of a trouser. Details such as fine cashmere socks in heavy-soled men's loafers and an astrakhan Russian hat and antique diamond earrings add a daringly new, romantically French attitude to the looks.
The finest French and Italian fabrics have been used such as heavy silk charmeuse for delicately-ruched, feminine scalloping; super fine knitted cashmere on the sleeves of a »cardigan dress«; heavy silk »satin-cuir«; silk crêpe georgette on the bias; cotton lace (Hurel); super light merino wool knits and exclusive ROCHAS silk brocade inspired by 1930s wallpaper (created especially for Zanini by Bucol).
Colour combinations such as black and ink blue; marron glacé and teal; chocolate and aubergine: powdery pink and coral create a wintry and muted tone.
