Pinned to the taffeta confections of countless prom-goers, corsages could be considered a bit démodé—but then, that’s just what Marco Zanini, the creative director of Rochas, finds so intriguing about them. “They’re a very fine balance between old and new, good and bad, cool and uncool,” he explains. Needless to say, the silk peonies in his spring show, which were inspired by a swatch of fabric from 1917 and handmade by the French flower craftsman Lemarié, are notable exceptions. Affixed to just about any ensemble, they appear incredibly chic.
