Design collective Rochas was founded in 1925 by Marcel Rochas, pioneering the '2/3 length coat' and pocketed skirts. Since its inception, the house has always found a way to emerge victorious from every situation it has been through, from being dropped by Proctor & Gamble to the multiple creative director changes. Today, under the hand of Alessandro Dell'Acqua, Rochas keeps the feminine and 'savoir-faire' tradition alive and is one of the most respected and talked-about names in the industry.
