THE LADY WHO SPORTS
Paris: Rochas designer Marco Zanini cited Wes Anderson’s Margot Tenenbaum as one inspiration for his recent resort collection and the influence seems to have carried through for S/S 13. Centered on a shrunken polo shirt silhouette, the presentation was sporty and luxurious, alternating between boxy satin shirts and dresses and crop tops paired with pleated floor-length skirts. In shimmering oyster and champagne brocade, suiting looked ladylike, but accessorized with lace-up boxing sneakers the mood remained youthful. Ghostly lavender florals and a whitened palette were perfect for Spring, while a turn to gothic crimson and black made the closing ensembles too heavy-handed for this fresh and innocent collection.—Nina Stotler
