The Dublin-native designer, Simone Rocha, unveiled her 2018 Spring/Summer Collection during London Fashion Week and took elegance and femininity to a whole new level.
Rocha developed her brand seven years ago and has reached success rather quickly. Her designs have become famous for their dainty and soft details. She commented on her collection saying, “My aesthetic is a little bit off, a little bit reversed. I never want to do anything that’s harsh, or ugly, or aggressive, but I always want it to be questioning, to be interesting.”
Rocha kept the colors and materials simple, with black and white dominating the collection. However, she added a victorian twist to each look using satin, lace, padded shoulders, and ruffles throughout.
The designer put a twist on the classic black trench coat by adding black tulle and lace to the bottom and white lace on on the collar. The trench coat also featured baggy sleeves and a belt. The ensemble was paired with platform Mary-Janes and a structured black purse.
This is one of many all white monochromatic looks Rocha featured in her collection. The blonde model traipsed down the runway wearing an oversized white satin dress with billowing ruffles and sleeves. This look was also the show’s finale.
This ensemble combines lace and eyelet embroidery on top of a nude and white sheer belted dress. I thought this piece exhibited femininity and delicate detailing perfectly.
Rocha’s new Spring/Summer 2018 collection took us back to her roots and kept in sync with the features that she has become famous for.
