ROCCOBAROCCO S/S 2009

It seems that next summer the soft feminine image is one of the trends, and this Napolitan designer seems to agree. 

The waist line helps to emphasise the delicate femininity of wide skirts and dresses. The softness is extended also to the short jersey dresses that are very tight fitting, with or without jackets and cardigans. 

The smoothness of the organza and lace shirts (even for daytime), combined with a sharp V neck-line, create an elegant but relaxed feeling. Helping to amplify this atmosphere, high waist wide trousers were part of the outfits. 

The prints and accessories, also in the floral motif, in young and almost innocent colours, neutral and earth colours with splashes of pink, purple and aqua green, and even some black is present in small flowers and butterflies.  

The other face of this collection was the surprised presence of the evening tuxedo – very classic and elegant, not at all relaxed, but always feminine. 

One last ingredient were the chic big hats, incredible for the warm summer on the beach, big bags that fit everything, and amazing accessories made of straw.
