As we may “Never be Royals,” as says Lorde in the Grammy Winning Song of the Year, “Royals,” it never hurts to dream of it. As Thom Browne designs an oh-so-Royalistic inspired collection. As Browne uses delicate lace, bold, very Queen Elizabeth the First inspired silhouettes, and one of my favorite hues: Gold.
“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.

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.
