John Rocha - LFW - Saturday 17th September 2011

John Rocha’s collection was spectacular, with a basic monochrome colour palette.

The simple colours made the collection all the more interesting with wide feathered, structured skirts, saucy black lace, and frayed black plastic.

The deconstructed garments looked perfect and finessed rather than messy and uncouth as some collections can be. Veering towards romance over the bright summer trends dresses were featured in gold and cream with sheer panels revealing nipples, wide netted skirts and shimmering, scrunched ruffles.
Keeping in line with the midi trend skirts were below the knee with a few layered, side split maxis.The styling was gorgeous with horn like head dresses rocking horse sandals (impossibly hard to walk in!) and ribbons of fabric dripping from the models pig tails.
Heading back a few centuries with the wide skirts this collection somehow looked vintage yet totally alien.
