Fashion Show Coverage: Roccobarocco S/S 13


A taste for the artisan manufacture and material opulence, typical of Roccobarocco`s tradition, of embroidery, lace and brocade, is reworked into a more light-hearted sense of fashion making.


The designer replaces traditional prints with an innovative lacquer technique of oriental inspiration which becomes the distinguishing feature of this collection.


Floral patterns, tortoiseshell geometrics and decorations lacquered onto the fabrics take on an unusual tactile effect on brocade and lame tunics, little dresses, chiffon dresses, maxi shirts and denim.


A brocade inlay flashes like a deep gash of light across gold lacquered georgette.


Animalier and tropical flower prints interweave on super-fluid blouses, palazzo pants in satin and sensual single-shoulder dresses.


The colour palette is vital: turquoise, coral red, gold and brilliant greens.


The decisive desire for anti-understatement is the Roccobarocco expression of a contemporary vision of Made in Italy.


A fresh & feminine summer collection featuring innovative brocade.

  2. The collection seems pretty cool. It does reflect opulence but seems wearable enough on the streets, not just the runway. :)
