INSPIRATION Yves Saint Laurent 1964… Rochas SS||2015

The layers of garments and accessories it took to create a single outfit seemed to be crucial to make an overstatement of sweetness in the last Rochas collection, designed by Alessandro dell’Acqua. For example, in this outfit [right] two delicate dresses were held together under a ruffle layer by a webbed military belt with a ‘R” for Rochas buckle. The poetry of exaggeration combined with the exquisiteness of an extra-high silhouette. Less complicated but with a similar romantic outcome is this Yves Saint Laurent dress, photographed on Antonia by William Klein in 1964 [right].
