Golden touches and iridescent fabrics were the name of the game at Rochas, Anne Valérie Hash, and Dries van Noten today.
At Rochas, designer Marco Zanini channeled sixties-era glamour with bouffant hairdos, modern babydoll dresses adorned with bows, long leopard print coats, and groovy cropped pants in robin's egg blue leather and gold lamé.
Gilded tips on oxford shoes complemented the lovely translucent pieces at Hash's show. The collection also touched on the omnipresent menswear trend with slouchy, low-slung pants and tailored jackets and jumpsuits.
Finally, Dries van Noten downplayed his successful mixed prints repertoire for more military-inspired looks this season. (Worth noting: the designer didn't abandon his bread and butter completely - there were cases of leopard fur mixed with floral silk crepe pants and a lace or striped top.) Overall though, it was the utilitarian classics that were the biggest hit. Army trench coats and pants, more slouchy menswear trousers, and other louche separates in shades of navy, gray, and black.
Of course there were flickers of gold, too. As witnessed in the glam cocktail dress above.
