Roksanda Fall 2016 RTW Show Unveils Romantic, Poetic Looks

Pretty colors and use of interesting combinations, both in terms of styles, patterns and materials, make for a pretty beguiling collection by Roksanda for the fall and winter seasons of 2016. The fashion house certainly knows what it is doing, but the designs are not the most captivating of the London Fashion Week. In terms of ready-to-wear though, we are sure that there will be quite a few people opting for a Roksanda dress, or even picking up those intriguing little boots.

Roksanda Fall/Winter 2016-2017 RTW - London Fashion Week

Those fur stoles though? They are pretty amazing and we will surely be investing in at least one or two. And we will perhaps pick up a coat. With 34 outfits to the Roksanda fall 2016 RTW collection, it certainly has a good line-up of a more sophisticated kind, meant for a woman of leisure, who rather enjoys her brand name pieces, while also bringing in some olden beauties that are a rather modern envisioning of the 1800s designs. But why not? If we are going up to the 1920s and the flappers, why not take note of the more modest times and bring the olden into the modern while pushing for a future, where things are a warped embodiment of all that they were, looking lovelier by each recreation.

We notice that the styles all differ from one another in different ways but generally keep to the theme. We find ourselves rather enjoying the ruffled collars and the velvet lapels, the cloud printed dresses with thigh-high boots underneath and the swirling sensations that put together some dresses. There are some rather puffy long sleeves as well, with cape coats that are reminiscent of days long gone, while bell sleeves and rounded double plated collars are what bring in the fun to the screen.

There is a good amount of silks used throughout as well, along with the velvets and the different looks, with a focus on more subtle designs throughout, the line that still resonates with the heavily artistic. As for the coats, there is nothing better than a fur lined piece that you can tie into a bow with a satin ribbon in front to keep in place. The modesty is probably one of the main features of this collection, with few skirts above the knees and absolutely no skin shown other than the hands and face. Perhaps we are looking at a line that caters to all religions as well?

In terms of accessories, we see the fur stoles of course but not much else. We do notice the purple tights and the ankle strapped d’Orsays, which we have to say are one of the best looks. And then there is the makeup, where we are looking at white and barely contoured faces, lightly lined eyes and ruby red lips, bringing the focus to the lower half of the face and effectively celebrating the heart shaped visage. The hair is also parted from the center, giving the ladies a stricter look, while sharpening up the overall appeal of the ladies pushed onto stage.
