Some really beautiful pieces, lovely jackets, I liek the toggles.

my favorite look was the one worn by stella, and the shoes where fabulous

other than that its rather "been there done that"

Quite intresting detail, silhouette in some pieces here and there... but this is way too in the mood (and the clothes) of last season and he never quite left Fall 2003 either. One word: Boring.

Suzy Menkes on Rochas a.w.04

[/QUOTE]Rochas has focused on a sweet, dark romance since Olivier Theyskens became designer for the house. He is moving very slowly and carefully - but that is not necessarily a bad thing, as he is handling such a fragile image. That was represented this season by the montage of butterflies opening and closing their wings on the backdrop. That seemed like a metaphor for the fluttering between a classic, even prudish, silhouette of short jacket and rounded skirt, and its opening up with a bloused satin top, a peek of corsetry underneath or a pouch of fabric filled with black fallen leaves at waist and bosom.
.
Many of these ideas had been seen before from Theyskens, yet he renews them with a little stream of creativity that included this season bright turquoise elbow gloves and metallic rich-hued shoes. This quiet, sweet, youthful romantic aesthetic is a good mix with Rochas..[QUOTE]

i was talking to a stylist friend who was at the Rochas show,
so.. he said that he found strange that the winter 04-05 collection
was in more more 'summery' fabrics than the ss04 one ,
but apart from this they was almost the same in the mood.

you are welcome softgrey

I hated the shoes
but I loved some of the dresses

the entire collection is very similar to the spring04 one, which is a little redundant, but I like the underlying theme to both collections

this was my favourite piece, I'm not sure why

i found this collection delightful it just didn't have that new patina like the last one did. but these seem like the most sophisticated and prim little black dresses we've seen this season, no?

That dress looks strangely like something I saw at Christian Dior (as in Christian Dior designed by Christian Dior)...
