Simone Rocha Collection


By IMAGE
18th Feb 2014

Incroyable. Simone Rocha has been more than a star rising for quite some time. Her love for unusual, futuristic materials and feminine dashes marking her out a firm fashion favourite that captured the public imagination very early on.

Her LFW show today was one of the most anticipated of the week with Anna Wintour herself in attendance. The press release promised an ‘Elizabethan, young and rebellious’ collection and Rocha delivered on her regal promise. With amber beads accentuating exaggerated hips, tartan upon tartan, that red checked dress and just the right amount of gold we’ve fallen even more head over heels. The show was genuinely one of our favourites and it didn’t hurt that Dublin band Cloud Castle Lake belted out their signature tune – the haunting A Wolf Howling – as the models sashayed down the runway of the Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall. Overall a brava from us.

 P.S. Loved the Ash Wednesday foreheads.
