Simple but well-cut clothes with a 1940s feel from Alessandro Dell’Acqua at Rochas. The spare silhouette, often featuring an empire waist, was adorned with multiple bows, lace inserts, high-necked frilled collars and basket-woven leather skirts and coats. There were also some heavier coats and dresses in a floral print on a dark background and long, body-conscious dresses with a leaf print. Dell’Acqua featured the initial 'R' on everything: it turned up in crystal on pointy-toed pumps, belts, brooches and bags and was embroidered on sweaters and cashmere knits often as a mirror image. Shoes were worn with knee-high, sheer stockings. There was little drama overall, but the show closed with a high shine, gold fringed look.
