THE INSPIRATION: "The bohemian travellers of the last century"

TOP LOOKS: Deconstructed tulle skirts; corseted bustiers; pale silks; and raw-edged soft tweed jackets

THE ACCESSORIES: Soft leather backpacks; fabulous ruffled hats; and open-fronted, lace-tie boots

WHAT WE THOUGHT: There's a haughty grandeur to the John Rocha woman for the coming season, something elegant and yet slightly undone at the same time. Never was this better executed than in the contrast between the stunning tulle skirts and the corsetry, reflected in a simple palette of black and nude.
