For his second runway outing for the French fashion house Rochas, Charles de Vilmorin was inspired by Hélène Rochas, the wife of founder Marcel Rochas, translating house heritage as a mood and lifestyle, rather than reference any particular design features. “This collection talks about freedom and something super sophisticated”, he said.

The vibe of this second one was well-off Goth meets monochromatic New Romantic. Understand sheer and delicate silhouettes, accompanied with eye-catching fringes, intricate embroideries, and long nails executed in a mostly black palette meant to highlight textures and lending an eveningwear tone to the collection. The collection‘s gothic aura was also apparent amongst the pieces’ headwear like its gleaming long-sleeve ribbed top with a connected one reminiscent of a knight in shining armor while the multicolor patchwork leather boots and studded-strap boots depicted sophisticated ferocity.
