“Underwater love. Sheer, frills, translucency and crystals at Rochas to a subterranean soundtrack from The Cure. Lovely last hurrah from Zanini.” Is what i-D Magazine quoted about Marco Zanini’s, sadly, last Rochas collection, on their Instagram. What I loved most was that the Crystals, Pearls, Pastels, and the frills that really brought such a Glamorous and Romantic vibe to the collection as a whole. A trend seen throughout all the cities at Fashion Week. While the frills made me think of a modern-day Marie Antoinette. As I’m currently reading Joan DeJean’s “The Essence of Style,” about how the French invented Fashion, Chic Cafes, and Gourmet food. The collection gives me reminiscence to the 17th century Fashion, described in, “The Essence of Style,” but with a Modern twist. And how couldn’t be obsessed with those fur pumps?
For Spring, Simone Rocha gives Classy and Ladylike styles, a Fun and Edgy twist. In a way, mixing the edgy and feminine styles showed off by the people of Great Britain. Rocha begins her collection, with Beautiful LBDs with ruffles of many styles, which have been seen a lot throughout London and New York Fashion Week. As designers are really putting their own zests on Traditonal feminine dresses.
Rocha even puts cutouts into her LBDs for a really edgy and bold feel. The models are also sporting pearl and lace chokers, and very feminine dresses towards the end, really making me think of Coco Chanel, with a more Marie Antoinette, Victorian like twist.
I feel as if I’m seeing fairies glide down the catwalk, is what I’m thinking as I see Zac Posen‘s Spring 2014 collection. With the models’ hair put up into a Beautiful bun with artificial flowerpetals, you feel as of you’re in fairly land, even just looking at a picture of the collection. But there’s something else about Posen’s collection, besides Fairies that makes this collection so Magical and Mystical, it’s the fact that the models also look like modern day Marie Antoinettes. With the ruffles on the dresses, and the ball gown at the end, we are definitely in a Mystical Kingdom.
