Oh my....can you say "Russian peasant"?


Blogger blake said ... (4:14 PM) : 

Photo #1 reminds me of the image you posted of the Mennonite girls from central Pennsylvania. What an interesting reference (intentional or otherwise).


Blogger *atelier said ... (4:15 PM) : 

wondering if a certain designer spent some time in northern ohio, perhaps in amish country?


Blogger Michelle Bobb-Parris said ... (4:15 PM) : 

These are beautiful photographs.

I love the print in the first image and the shapes in photos 2 and 4.

Inspired by Amish girls?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:25 PM) : 

I'm really not a fan of the clothes (they're too granny for my taste) but the makeup is amazing.


Blogger Rachael said ... (4:32 PM) : 

So pretty!! Love it!


Anonymous jimjims said ... (4:35 PM) : 

these ladies look like they are from a different planet.

really cool!

Peasant is IN THE HOUSE!

The second photo from the top makes me feel kinda funny...

So far my favorite show. I was freaking out when I saw it. Soooo crazy beautiful.


Blogger Prutha Raithatha said ... (5:00 PM) : 

those glasses r soo cool


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:14 PM) : 

I can't say i love this collection. I understand the prevalent men's wear trend, however, these women look frumpy!!!


Blogger Álvaro said ... (5:49 PM) : 

great collection, love the patterns



Blogger Chris Wolfgang said ... (5:49 PM) : 

Love the eyeshadows! But latest in POW couture?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:13 PM) : 

love the bathing suit, but the rest seems a slave to the oversized trend in a heavy way


Blogger FASHION SNAG said ... (6:15 PM) : 

Loving that floral swimsuit!


Anonymous liz h said ... (6:18 PM) : 

i have never seen blue eyeshadow look so beautiful!


Anonymous elxoxodemiprima said ... (6:38 PM) : 

I suspect all his talent will not be enough to keep Mr. Zanini at his post for long.
plain awfull...unflattering swedish "hausfrau" look..


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:49 PM) : 

I agree with the comment that this seems a heavy handed way of the oversized trend.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:24 PM) : 

I live in the heart of Amish Country in Pennsylvania, and these designs are quite similar to those of the Amish. It is neither flattering on the Amish, nor flattering on the runway. Especially in look 1 and 5


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:40 PM) : 

That floral bathing suit is amazing. Love the purple.


Blogger Alicia said ... (7:42 PM) : 

the eye makeup is lovely! i love that indigo blue especially on the 3rd photo.


Blogger Quien tu ves said ... (7:50 PM) : 

Seems like i'm not the only one who doesn't understand the concept. But if you try to focus... some lines made by the garment... are quite nice. Look the waist in that black skirt. Make-up is nice too, but may be a little disconnected from the rest of the elements. Anyway, to me, the collection shouts "crisis" and not in a japanese way.


Blogger Joanna said ... (10:46 PM) : 

Study your color theory, you shall go far.

So says Rochas!

Also, the patterns are unbelievably wonderful. Thanks for the photos, sir!


Blogger Admin said ... (11:06 PM) : 

Early 90's?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:11 PM) : 

some girls look like from Robbie Williams clip "sin sin sin":)


Blogger UESman said ... (11:34 PM) : 

I go to school in Lancaster Pennsylvania right now, and its funny to see women in bonnets and long black dresses as runway fashion!

I see little old amish/mennonite ladies pushing laundry carts down the street, dressed exactly the same way!

I guess the folks at Rochas took a trip to Lancaster...or just looked at your photos from a few months back, eh Sart ;)


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:36 PM) : 

That round shades are epic! LOL. xxx


Blogger Kesia said ... (11:53 PM) : 

Wow! This is an amazing collection by Rochas. I love the black tights and forties gray ankle-strap platforms.


Blogger vintage1944 said ... (11:55 PM) : 

Hmmm.No iToo stern.t doesn't work.any of it.

Are we back to pilgrim fashion now?

I do like the print in the first photo.


Blogger Unknown said ... (1:06 AM) : 

Love all of these! Especially the really rounded sunglasses and the floral bathing suit (?) xxx


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:21 AM) : 

Meh. These are not so great.


Blogger Melissa G said ... (4:23 AM) : 

I love the blue eye shadow. Incredible.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:36 AM) : 

If these clothes can make the female elite look so goddam awful what hope the rest of us just horrible.


Blogger Cecille said ... (4:37 AM) : 



Blogger Laurence John said ... (5:16 AM) : 

far from being frumpy these are actually very elegant and charming.


Blogger Unknown said ... (5:28 AM) : 

It's good to see that Rochas now has got its mojo back! The collection is great: fantastic use of colours, clean cuts... Is Olivier Theyskens still at the helm?


Blogger Sesselja said ... (5:28 AM) :

Superb post....


Blogger TheStreetFashion5xpro said ... (5:49 AM) : 

fantastic collection!!! amazing photos


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:06 AM) : 

Very different but very well put!!! I really like them !!!!!


Anonymous Lauren said ... (6:10 AM) : 

Love the floral bathing suit but couldn't they have put it on a girl with curves? It looks all wrong on her - though worse are the bad, bad fake tan lines around her armpits. Think the make-up is fantastic but doesn't work with everything else. And everything else - well, an interesting concept but I think for wearability all I could take from this would be the beautiful silk headscarves and some of the mismatched print ideas (which are beautiful, especially in the first picture). Those skirt lengths do NOTHING for a lady with real legs. How did he manage to make giraffe-like models look frumpy? (Oh, and shoes/skirt combo in the last pic remind me of the how at 14 I insisted on wearing grungy Doc Martens with my navy school skirt. My mother was right, it was BAAAAD.)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:50 AM) : 

prettiest & strangest collection so far out of the whole lot (ny/milan/paris) clothes from a dressing up box in the attic of the collective european memory..takes spirit to dress like this...


Anonymous Lu said ... (7:33 AM) : 

I just looove the prints on the first two photos and can't stop looking at the eye makeup!


Blogger kukla said ... (7:51 AM) : 

This is not "cool" clothes, this is FASHION


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:03 AM) : 

wow Amish meet Babushka dolls and live happy ever after! Pretty prints!


Blogger Barbara said ... (8:07 AM) : 

They all look like not-so-pleasant peasants. Just frumpy and dumpy. Who on earth is going to wear this? I do quite like the sunglasses, but I'll stick to my vintage Emannuelle Kahns, thank you.............


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:41 AM) : 

I agree with who said this designer will be soon replaced.


Anonymous Nora said ... (8:55 AM) : 

This makeup is just amazing, and I love the glasses! The colours are really beautiful but im not sure i like the first look..


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:11 AM) : 

the colors!!!


Blogger L'age moyen said ... (9:31 AM) : 

The shoes you're showing us from these collections are the most wearable, delicious shoes in years. Most women (well, I can't) walk in those towering spiky heels - but these shoes allow you to have some height without risking a fracture. I also love the inclusion of flats.

Have you seen the flats that Armani is showing? They give the line and length to the ankle and leg as a heel but they're flats. Quite brilliant and so practical. Maybe women finally do control their fashion destiny.

Much love to you Mr. S.

Make up & sunglasses...Beautiful!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:49 AM) : 

I also spent some of my childhood in "Pennsylvania Dutch" country and that's exactly what leaped to mind when I saw these get-ups. Is this a joke?


Blogger Kathleen said ... (9:58 AM) : 

"Where's The Beef?" Remember the commercial from the 80"s that had the Soviet fashion show? Sorry, but this kind of reminds me of a time when we were a bit too stark. I'm not fond of this show.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:59 AM) : 

I saw this on and thought it was horrible and is it that your pictures make it cool and feminine!?! Scott you are such a talent. Maybe its your aura....


Anonymous Maryanne said ... (10:25 AM) : 

longer hemlines, more grounded shoes, a hint toward shorter hair.

something 'old world' and literally retro about this collection.

found the round sunglasses with the high bridge interesting.

not a collection that made me dream.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:38 AM) : 

Tim Gunn wouldn't let this ulgy stuff out of the workroom.


Anonymous mabelmabel said ... (11:45 AM) : 

Extremely well-made, high-quality clothing is always a pleasure to look at, regardless of style, of whether it flatters.

Perhaps this collection intentionally defies beauty--although, to me, that's a bit unfortunate.

Maybe this is a good time to suggest to the poor models the old advice that "if you smile you will be beautiful"?


Anonymous Sarah O said ... (11:51 AM) : 

I really liked Rochas in the past but what's up with this collection?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:28 PM) : 

The eyeglasses remind me of La Jeteé


Anonymous Zernike said ... (2:24 PM) : 

Quick! Take me back to Jil Sander!!!

*running fast out of this room*

Ha-ha...nothing here appeals to me in the least...well, maybe the romper but only as underwear. Otherwise, can we look any frumpier?


Blogger Sheri said ... (3:20 PM) : 

My God are these women beautiful.I don't think you have to be as thin as them..but even with a few extra ponds these women would be drop dead beautiful.The eyes,and their facial expressions are what I find most unique.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:33 PM) : 

Stunning eye makeup.



Anonymous carcosa said ... (4:41 PM) : 

I love it! Far from Amish or Russian peasant, I was reminded of libertine British 1920's artists and authors. The headscarves and the glasses in particular. All they need are Isadora Duncan scarves and they can ride around the countryside in roadsters.


Anonymous Anastasia said ... (4:46 PM) : 

I feel like if an Amish girl were to experience the cliche angel on one shoulder devil on the other, this would for sure be the Amish devil, a fan of MGMT and possibly Dr. Strangelove


Blogger Román Iglesias said ... (6:16 PM) : 

the 3erd girl is soooooooo cute

lovely glasses


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:54 PM) : 

Love the black outfit!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:26 PM) : 

@ kukla; it can't be named FASHION only because is labeled Rochas.
Fashion is much more than can't exist only in the world of conceptualism. when concepts materializes they must be desirable, wearable and in the case of fashion it MUST be commercial as well, its how the designer get paid... he is not an artist who sells ONE piece.


Blogger zahira said ... (10:15 PM) : 

i need those sunglasses!


Anonymous 十十f十 said ... (11:10 PM) : 

it's exactly the frumpy-ness that i love.


Anonymous A Girl, A Style said ... (12:53 PM) : 

Beautiful, beautiful Rochas. I loved the iris print dresses and full swimsuits.

Blogger J.Ro said ... (4:23 PM) : 

Someone's been a little too inspired by BIG LOVE.


Blogger Unknown said ... (7:21 PM) : 

Oh dear. I can't say I enjoy most of these. The print in the first fabric looks like a Mary Engelbreit calendar. And the rest seems Amish-inspired. Although the silhouette of the bathing suit (?) is really sweet. It gives her a good sense of curves. Do love the makeup.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:59 AM) : 

Yikes! There is really very little else to say. This will do nothing at all for the everyday woman.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:46 PM) : 

Sorry, this collection doesn't do it for me at all. Quite honestly, I don't want to wear clothes influenced by this direction at all.


Blogger Veve said ... (11:31 PM) : 

Love the makeup, HATE the clothes.


Blogger Herr Gurkmeja said ... (11:37 AM) : 

Nice! The print is Swedish folk art, Kurbits painting. From a little village outside of Leksand called Ullvi.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:16 PM) : 

The people in Dalarna loooove their kurbits so much that you can even find coloring books and tattoos (mostly the flowers) in this style. I lived in Leksand for two years and that area is really something special...

I really do hope that he made scarves in the same style, otherwise I'll have to learn how to paint kurbits :S.

Wow! I really love your blog. I have bookmarked this page so I can come back again to check it out. I love information Silhouette Rimless Eyeglasses, I collect them. I just hope you keep up the good work.

Looking good catwalk


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:33 PM) : 

love the final photo... nun chic!


Anonymous teryosha said ... (4:43 PM) : 

Feels like Russian influence to me...but not the opulance of winter finery, rather soviet era head coverings of the working gals. not the makeup though.


Blogger Loey said ... (5:27 AM) : 

Why does it scream Amish with a little bit of late 80s/early 90s print.
