John Rocha AW1415























John Rocha’s frequent journeys to Iceland have inspired his Autumn/Winter 2014-2015 collection.

Other Iceland-influenced collections : Issey Miyake by Yusuke Takahashi Autumn/Winter 2014-2015 Menswear (Iceland’s dynamic nature was referenced in this show), Jean-Charles de Castelbajac Autumn/Winter 2012-2013 (this collection, titled « Fire on Ice », partly paid homage to Iceland’s magic), VPL Spring/Summer 2007 (this show was based on Iceland’s glaciers and waterfalls).

      That’s where John Rocha fishes for salmon (but don’t blame the super-talented designer : it’s only for sport, he returns the fishes to the sea) ! xxxxx

    Waouh !!! Tenue qui ne passe pas inaperçue et qui me fait penser à un coquelicot 🙂

      Merci pour cette très jolie analogie ! Un champ de si magnifiques robes “coquelicot” serait certainement très beau à voir ! ❤

    If it’s good enough for Issey Miyake, it’s good enough for me – I love his line and am going to revisit his collection to see the Icelandic hints!

      Haha, I guess that the lovely model thought, while she was gracing the runway, “Please, God, don’t make me fall !”. She didn’t fall but we are all falling in love with her sumptuously vibrant gown ! Vibrant cheers !
