When it comes to London Fashion Week, one of the “must see” shows is John Rocha. This veteran is a favourite of the edgier fashion set.
Think of John Rocha’s latest collection as something ancient and Irish seen via moonlight.
While many designers have favored bold colorations evoking the optimism and energy of a rave or a vacation on Ibiza, John Rocha often goes more Goth and pagan-romantic (think of it as something ancient and Irish seen via moonlight). This collection wasn’t any different.
John Rocha likes to treat his ladies like folkloric Celtic muses. He always likes to throw in a little romantic twist to his creations and this time is no exception. The nocturnal Goth feel of this line-up brings out a re-imagined pagan note that somehow manages to be surprisingly feminine.
He adroitly delivered a strong line-up of separates that, for some odd reason, appear as one look with the styling. The fact that this collection is entirely black, and not just dark hues, makes it difficult to decipher at first glance. Black clothing is super popular and sells very well, but for some odd reason it never quite reads clearly at first.
As one-note as this collection might appear to be, the great applications of Mongolian lamb and ultra-luxe shearlings play harmoniously well with the chiffons and laces. It’s all about balance and he is a master at it.
