Rochas Catwalk Fashion Show Paris FW2010

The Goldie Hawn movie ‘Cactus Flower’ from 1969 was the inspiration for Marco Zaninin’s third collection for Rochas. And so we could tell. Most of the outfits could have come straight from Goldie’s wardrobe for that movie..

The clothes were colorful, very retro and as Zanini put it himself: ‘smiley and joyful’. Every look, with unexpected combinations of shades and fabrics, made us more excited.  And suddenly a turquoise skirt, a yellow lace top, a gray coat, a purple ribbon bow and deep red gloves didn’t look all that bad together. Woolen cardigans with elbow patches formed a good mix with small belts and long gloves as well.

Everything had a great sixties/seventies vibe:

The golden lame, used for some pants, dresses, skirts and tunics.
The pink, brown and beige color combinations.
The ruffled collars and wide sleeves.
The metallic fabrics.
The pant suits
The tunics
The cropped pants.
And not to mention the model’s big hairdo’s!

This Rochas collection might have been very diverse, yet Zanini’s craftsmanship held all pieces together perfectly.

Marco Zanini presented his second collection for Rochas on the runway. He added more color and print to a collection that was built on slip dressing, tailoring, and knits. His starting point seemed a French woman in the colonies. He translated that in shades of aubergine, paprika, saffron, lemon, turquoise, and mint. Belts and flowers (also in prints), sandals and ankle socks were his favorite accessories. The collection focused at slipdresses, sheer, sleeveless blouses (with retro bra), cropped trousers or short knit dresses with a flaring ice-skater skirt.
