Alessandro Dell’Acqua just revealed Rochas’ new Fall/Winter ’19 collection and it’s everything we wanted it to be…

Paris Fashion Week just keeps getting better and better. Following Dior, Saint Laurent and Lanvin‘s Fall/Winter ’19 runway shows, it was time for Rochas to reveal their latest collection at the beautiful Theatre National de Chaillot.

Whilst luxury fashion is currently brimming with a streetwear takeover, the brand’s Creative Director, Alessandro Dell’Acqua, dove into couture heritage to revive what luxury fashion is really all about.

As a result, the designer kept his focus solely on two different things; fabric and form. The former saw an exploration of heavy tweed, cloqué textures and wool jacquard. The latter, trapeze and cocoon forms to resemble post-war haute couture.

In the end, the collection was as dramatic as it was dark. It came complete with an abundance of glossy black leather plastered onto sleeveless dresses, cropped cocoon jackets and over-the-knee boots.

However, there was also an essence of femininity. A selection of voluminous tulle creations (which played with couture codes and modern techniques) came in lighter hues, soft finishings and with beaded embellishments.
