simone rocha fall 2012

her first time showing on the NEWGEN catwalk, simone rocha has cemented her position as 'london's hottest up-and-comer'. a contrast of textures, delicate and tough, used on mini skirts, over sized shiny jackets and sharp collared cropped blouses was inspired from dublin cities children in the 1930s. what makes the collection so interesting is the use of different materials, from pvc and perspex to wild mohair, tweed, lace and leather all in a dreamy, peaceful colour palette of creams, light greys, blacks, metallic silver and a quick short burst of acid yellow. my favourite piece is without a doubt the metallic silver leather jacket. if only i could of got down to london on thursday on time, i could have been helping out here and at john rocha again ... !
