    Sometimes it’s so hard to see past the perfect body that is modeling the clothing.

    Rochas all the way. Clothes for an intellectual woman. Clothes to give a college lecture in. I just loved the subtlety and richness of this collection.

    It is a collection of final mystery, undecipherable lady and fabrics similar to the vitral, that well to see her, kisses ana.

    Personally I prefer Balmain due to the edgier looks. These are really great pictures! I love the color scheme of the collection and the patterns.

    I love all of this. I want to swim in it. I’m pinning all this up to drool over again and again.

    As a woman of over fifty years, I will vote Rocha. Style, class and elegance.

    I’d like to be… a rochas lady! another great marco zanini show!

    Rochas is more wearable and I love the third look but Balmain’s collection is just beautiful! So I guess I’m a Rochas Lady in real life but a Balmain Woman in my dreams.

    Hard to say. I’d say Balmain… dreamy with an edge. Rochas is dream-like with a slant

    Well no doubt Rochas collection is classic and well executed, flaweless but cold. Great fall colours and very safe. It has the feel of an Italian show instead of Parisian. Reminds me to much of Prada a few years back and a shy Marni. It’s good but Balmain was a class apart in my humble opinion. He took a risk and oh boy it really paid off ! I see no pictures of Balenciaga anywhere…. that can’t be good.

    Rochas for me! The Balmain collection was lovely and interesting, but the clothes overshadow the woman. With Rochas, the individual can still shine through.

    Rochas all the way for me – what a collection! Felt like I could just pop it on and go.

    A Rochas collection that certainly stands out but unlike other designers this year a distinct lack of bold colours. Intersting use of print design and quite amazing shapes/cuts. The last model is particularly amazing!

    Rochas! great patterns and textures. more subdued and intellectual but still glam.

    Rochas. Beauty when you’re not looking.
    I would be embarrassed to try for it. And that is what Balmain means to me.

    I’m not yet 20, and I’m a Rochas lady… I think some of this season’s Balmain looks tacky… and isn’t it a bit too similar to last season’s? I think someone’s beauty shines through, if they dress beautifully… not necessarily to show they’ve a great pair of legs…would Audrey Hepburn go Balmain or Rochas??

    the Rochas is fabulously beautiful in every detail. After a fairly drab & predictable Milan it was a real lift to see such fabrics & the eye for sheer subtle loveliness.

    Not necessarily age..I’d have gone for the Rochas when I was 14…would have thought it exactly how one should dress when grown up….

    but then every collection Zanini has done for Rohas has been a breath taker..he’s so gifted
    can’t understand why he’s not a bigger name but maybe that’s a good thing.

    Oh if only I could afford to buy them….

    I am a Rochas lady, because it is so wearable, and because past a certain age, wearing hot pants just doesn’t suit.

    Oh Rochas I love you, but why must you be owned by that evil Procter and Gamble???

    Rochas Rochas Rochas Rochas Rochas. so sleek, sharp tailoring, a smart edge and feminine chic without being too dainty…and the color palette! so rich. I mean….come on. ! it manages a bold understatedness. how does it manage bold understatedness?

    Rochas all the way.

    Rochas for sure. In the case of the Balmain collection, it seems that the clothes overpower the woman, where the Rochas complement the wearer.
