London: John Rocha’s brand of deconstruction has always come with healthy dose of romantic frills, but this season, he dialed it down a notch with appealing results. Inspired by the tranquility of the fishing trips he often takes, this collection was infused with a sense of calm and refinement. Rocha was at his best during these quiet moments, without the corseted bodices, layers of tulle and extravagant headpieces that he has shown the last few seasons. Fishtail-hemmed gowns in demi-sheer crepe and boho-goth crochet successfully channeled this season’s minimalism; a long cardigan styled over an ankle-length sheer showed how to effortlessly wear the new long-over-long silhouette. Softly cocooning coats revealed Rocha’s tailoring skills and also captured the quiet elegance that he was going for with this collection.
