Rochas Fall 2016 RTW Overwhelms Us With Regal Velvet & Rich Colors

It is a celebration of femininity just in time for the International Women’s Day next week! The Rochas fall/winter 2016-2017 RTW collection has some unkempt but very feminine looks that we feel like copying for the fall and winter seasons, especially the fall. There are some major trends that we notice in the collection right away as the ready-to-wear looks are presented on the Paris Fashion Week runway. The first is the knee-high or even over-the-knee socks, knit and soft, paired with shoes that have platform heels pushing them sky high. It appears that for the fall and winter, we are moving on from flats to footwear that protects the feet from getting stuck in mud or snow, except the ankle strapped sandal feature of it is not quite what we imagined for the cooler months.

Rochas Fall/Winter 2016-2017 RTW - Paris Fashion Week

Colors seem to be pretty big for Rochas this year, just like the regal velvet trend we have been seeing all around the fashion capitals during the recent month. With powder blue shirt dresses starting things off, paired with coral socks and shiny green sandals, the collection including baby pink coats, moss green pants, deep purple gloves, taupe wraparound dresses, copper shoes, golden ruffled blouses, burnt orange shirts, bright green creations, black and white combinations, bright blue turtlenecks, sea green skirts, coats and dresses, and so much more.

We have to admit that the socks are the most interesting, coming in every rich color, including purples and lilacs and reds and greens and blues of all shades! It is truly darling and gives the ladies a younger look, while ensuring you can wear skirts while keeping at least relatively warm.

As for all the gold that appears, let’s just say that the shimmering pants are probably our favorite, especially when paired with a shiny forest green velvet sweater. Gold, and shimmering gold at that, appears on midi skirts and ruffled pieces, flower-print tops and silver imbued near maxi dresses. And then there is all the colorful fur that appears, with shorter coats and long ones, all easily covering up the bodies with ease.

As for the cuts of the outfits, we notice a few trends that really grab our attention and that match with what was expected for 2016. There are the thigh slits that have been transferred over from 2015, the midi hems that are the main length to skirts on the different runways this year, the multiple layers to the dresses, which really add flounce to any look, the high necklines that help create a longer silhouette, the long sleeves matched with open shoulders, both of which have been going strong since the spring, the use of shirts, the slip dresses that are almost reminiscent of nightgowns and so much more. Plus, there is an overall permeating feeling of comfort throughout, which really fits into the year’s general themes when it comes to portraying great fashion. All in all, this is a gorgeous clothing line and just seeing it helps life up our moods.
