Day three of LFW and our first show of the day was Rohmir. If we were cradling a small champagne headache from the night before’s after party then it was shortly about to be blasted away with Rohmir’s operatic runway presentation. Live music was provided by a live opera singer who merged classical and modern influences to create a magic affair. Pulsing high notes and runs sent an elegant collection down the runway in a sophisticated manner.
Rohmir turned to Italy to seek the quintessential femininity that ran throughout the collection. The show, entitled Sparkling, certainly did that. In terms of boundaries, Rohmir did not push any, instead opting to build a firmer foothold in the sector they lie: classic elegance. Sensual gowns in lace, embroidery and tailoring wafted down the runway, achieving a red carpet aesthetic that suits the brand so well.
When we weren’t in awe of the live soundtrack that blew any afterparty cobwebs away, we were loving the models’ personality on the runway. Seemingly casting a diverse range of ages to showcase the looks form older to cute mini-me little girls who wore adorable matching gowns, Rohmir made a statement: they are a family brand, catering to events such as weddings and ambassadorial balls.
The colour palette had a spring-like ease to it, from baby blues and fawn greens melting into midnight almost inky blues these garments will fit into a modern day eveningwear look effortlessly. This was mirrored in the hair and makeup which we can only describe as sophisticated and polished. Smokey eyes that scream “I’m a woman who’s in control” matched the smooth pony-tails and quaffed fringes.
Rohmir’s SS18 collection looked effortless and expensive. All we need now is somewhere chic enough to wear it… oh, and a blow dry.
