It is no surprise that fashion is a gradual process for Ireland based designer John Rocha. For the spring season, Rocha follows silhouettes that are similar to his fall collection. The main difference is that Rocha has traded in dark luxe furs for variants of a softening white. Inspired by the work of sculptor Alexander Calder, Rocha attacks the season with a dandy use of fabrics and color. However, he uses the silhouettes to his advantage, paying close attention to cut in order to sculpt a masculine look. Always a daring task in menswear, oversize billowing outerwear contrasts suiting pieces that are more tapered in comparison. Altogether, Rocha successfully marries the elegance of the contemporary gentleman to the edginess of a performer with modern appeal.
