London Fashion Week: John Rocha SS13
John Rocha discovered the joys of colour for S/S 13. Following a trip to Provence the designer felt inspired by the exuberant colours of the landscape. The designer’s usual sombre colour palette has been a staple at London Fashion Week, so the use of vivid colour in this collection is a statement for Rocha. The catwalk with awash with dusty pinks, sorbet yellow and vibrant red that turned the poof skirts and voluminous delicate translucent organza coats and jackets into a technicolor feast. There were the usual couture-like techniques and finishing to the garments and his signature knitwear. It was a truly inspired decision for Rocha to fully embrace colour, rejuvenating his label, which has somewhat ended up in the shadows of his own daughter Simone who has become something of a fashion darling.
