Rochas spirit and DNA stands for pure Luxury, Savoir-Faire, feminine silhouettes, attention to details, the craftsmanship and highest quality of fabrics and fabrication. I believe the name ROCHAS is very evocative and rich in history, but at the same time ageless and modern. It is a unique brand, as it is one of the oldest Luxury Maisons in France. Rochas woman is self-confident, inspired, eccentric and passionate about art and travel. She loves the freshness of chic sportswear, and at the same time can be more feminine and sophisticated for evening wear. The finest and richest design and fabrics, that belong to a couture heritage, are worn with an easy wear attitude.
Born in 1962 in the lively, cosmopolitan chaos of Naples and schooled at the local Academy of Fine Arts, Dell'Acqua fell under the spell of fashion pretty soon. Alessandro is barely twenty when he got his first job at Enrica Massei, until he landed at Genny, where he cut his teeth under Gianni Versace and later worked as a design director for the brand's edgier lines.
In 1996 Alessandro Dell'Acqua took his fate into his own hands and went solo, launching his eponymous line to immediate critical and commercial acclaim. Sensual, modernist and feminine, the collection spawned an equally sensual, decidedly modernist menswear spin-off in 1998. In 2002, at the peak of success, Dell'Acqua was awarded with the Fashion Oscar for best womenswear designer.
In 2013 Alessandro Dell'Acqua has been named creative director of the house of Rochas.
Rochas being a quintessentially French maison, Dell'Acqua brings his deep know how and taste for sensually modern elegance. The result is a contemporary take on the iconic feminine Rochas style is known for. Dell'Acqua's interpretation is individual and slightly off-kilter.
A year after finalising the acquisition of the famous Parisian couture and fragrance house, Interparfums is delighted to announce the arrival of Béatrice Ferrant in the position of Artistic Director for Men’s Fashion. Béatrice Ferrant has forged her career with prestigious houses such as Revillon and Balenciaga, and since 2003 has been Artistic Director at her own fashion house, Lefranc-Ferrant. She has received a host of accolades for her style and creativity.
"Fashion is infinitely more than a basic clothing statement. A garment is beautiful if it makes you beautiful, if it has a soul and exudes energy, it will be elegant. I love that modern clothing can borrow its nobility and light from the greatest eras in fashion. I incorporate surprises from the life of a modern, principled and sensitive man who is always on the move and who values his freedom. I believe that Rochas is perfectly aligned with this vision of powerful, confident and timeless style that suits the day-to-day experiences of a 21st-century man."
