Simone Rocha S/S 2016

Simone Rocha S/S 2016

Set story: The magnificent setting of St. James’s Palace – regardless of whether it was in the so-called stables – was a familiar return to the designer’s luxurious handling of materials. Rocha managed to set it off by using more relaxed, leaf prints that were almost tropical.   

Mood board: Typical Simone Rocha themes dominated this collection: sheer white or black dresses, with polka dot details and floral motifs. But, renewed floral patterns still took centre stage, with a new wind blowing throughout. Simone experimented with leaf prints that were bordering on the tropical, a definite nod to a more a wearable – even resort - direction.

Finishing touches: Transparency was an overreaching theme throughout almost every look, from flimsy silver sandals, large ornate Perspex drop earrings hanging from earlobes and miniature handbags handles.
