Rochas Spring 2013 RTW

Launch Slideshow

SHOW: Rochas, Spring 2013

THEME: Proportion play

ACCESSORIES: White round frame sunglasses, silky turbans, satchel handbags, matching shoes in oxford, mid-calf boot and knee-high styles

OVERALL TAKEAWAY: While there was certainly a retro undercurrent to Marco Zanini's spring show for Rochas, the real focus was on proportion.

There were generously cut, boxy shirts and coats paired with teeny-tiny skirts. Midriff-baring tops added a dash of scandal to more conservative wide-leg pants, and simple bralets balanced out full skirts with accordion pleating.

Even the bathing suits proved a lesson in contrast—models wore strapless bikini tops with full-coverage, high-waist bottoms.

But it wasn't until the end of the show that Zanini showed his true knack for proportion play with a black and red floral print bikini and matching oversized opera coat—of course. 

What else would you wear to the beach but your opera coat!?
