With the epic London fashion week this year, Simone Rocha from Ireland needs a mention for sure; with her father in the industry John Rocha she has definitely caught my eye with her latest collection.
Simone Rocha was working on a vision of new and old Ireland from the 30s: wild meets refined, oversized mannish Teddy coats mixed with pretty guipure and corded lace. We’ve seen a big coat over a pretty dress many times but here it was fresh again, with the unified colours she is using makes the whole collection go with our London weather nowadays the off white, black and metallic make the colours between themselves stand out.
With all my favourite textures and colour this season she really has nailed it with full elegance and chic. With a twist of masculine look as well as the lace and sheer tulle makes the collection a very feminine feel.
I have selected three of my “one to wear” this season from the collection which can easily take your day outfit to night – beautiful!
