Tranquil music set the scene for another fabulous show at John Rocha. Bouclé bubble dresses in soft creams, pure white and candy pinks appeared. The models makeup was a touch Geisha, giving a nod to Rocha’s part Eastern heritage. Pearlised kid leather jumpsuits with intricate beading, in soft pinks and creams. Uneven hemlines were present throughout the show, along with different maxi volumes. Hand knitted black spider web lace was padded out into lampshade skirts and dresses. The girls wore flat’s on the runways, something I haven’t seen at many shows, giving it an all together more relaxed, laid back vibe. The menswear consisted of 7/8th trousers in whiter than white, teamed with sporty red and camel coloured macs. Embroidered shirts with elaborate seams hung loose underneath smart naval-inspired blazer jackets.
Rocha is known for his black, but this collection incorporated lots of fresh colours. As if for dessert, the last run of girls wore beautiful, simple dresses in an array of aqua blues, lemon yellows and candy pinks. Lovely!
