nspired by olive colored paintings and Hong Kong’s Happy Valley Race track, Rocha took horseback riding to a shapeless level this season. Balloon style taffeta jackets appeared on the runway as standard silhouettes were contorted with blouses that were magnified by bell sleeves, high collars and the occasional turtle neck. Elements of goth, such as dark and sheer eveningwear covered in multi dimensional embroidery, tied in with the messy model hair and chunky platform boots worked simultaneously to bring you back to the grunge 90's. Envision Sara Gilbert from Poision Ivy, but Rocha's version with a modern twist.
Using fabrics like Mongolian fur, lambskin, and holed knitted yarn the collection was plainly carefully thought out and constructed. The heavy mongolian jackets were sliced with cutaway and complemented with caped backs and belt details. Colors like chartreuse and gold were imbedded into the collection subtly and quite perfectly, leaving the exaggeration factor to be dominant in the structure and silhouettes of the clothing.
As for accessories, the models carried black circular furry purses and wore waist cinching belts. The show was gracefully concluded with a delicate black sheer maxi dress that had fused flower embroidery on the waist area.
