With a varied narrative – first showcasing a color palette and designs embodying flames (there were short and long plissé lamé dresses in shades of red and black and a knee-length red-and-orange number whose arms were traced by a wide band of winglike ruffles), then juxtaposing with de Vilmorin’s own drawings, and then in yet more contrast featuring deconstructed garments with rips and sliced pieces – the collection took twists and turned fit for a jaunt in an edgy yet elegant wonderland.
“The Rochas universe is more sophisticated and feminine. We tried to bring in a touch of techno, a manga spirit. I’m giving it my own spin”, de Vilmorin said.
