London Fashion Week has been long awaited by many designers, bloggers, buyers and general fashion enthusiasts and the AW12 did not disappoint. It was our first time attending and we didn’t know what to expect but not only was Somerset House the perfect venue to hold such an event – the weather was blooming! Below is a mesh of our streetstyle favourites and I think it is safe to say that this year it was all about the hidden gems, those little extra touches that made them from normal to fashionistas!
The hats, the jewellery, the bags, the ankle socks it all made such a big difference to the overall scheme of the outfits and we loved it all! Overall outtake from LFW? You can never wear too many accessories 😉
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’s latest collection catches the eye
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!
