We crowned Simone Rocha’s A/W 2017 collection the best Best Women’s Fashion Collection in our February 2018 issue, but it’s not just just designer’s delicate use of silk, floral motifs and ruffles that has caught out eye. The catwalk jewellery that Rocha sends twinkling down the catwalk includes long crystal droplets which swing from the earlobe, asymmetric faux pearl drop earrings and bejewelled hair slides. Pretty and poetic, they hint at both Victoriana and the childhood notion of dressing up. Lucky for us, we had a sneak preview of the pieces that Simone Rocha debuted today as part of her A/W 2018 show at London Fashion Week. There’s a sense of off-kilter elegance to Rocha’s aesthetic, embodied here in these multi chandelier bow crystal earrings, presented in an unusual colour combination of red, amber and cloudy pink beads. The earrings glimmered alongside bow-detail hair slides and delicate beaded straps of net dresses, and complemented the ruffled tartans and wallpaper-like brocades presented on the runway.
