Five Days of Fashion - Simone Rocha

What Farfetch Say -
Simone Rocha
The closer you look, the more there is to Simone Rocha’s clothes. Sci-fi fabrics were an early signature, but her recent shows have focused more on complicated construction techniques instead. It’s a shift that saw her take home Designer of The Year at the Glamour Women of the Year Awards earlier this month, and resulted in a collection of low-slung skirts this season. For Autumn/Winter 2014 Rocha was inspired by the opulence of Queen Elizabeth I’s court, translating it into a line of embellished cocktail dresses and ruffled coats.

My Thoughts -
I love the simplicity of Simone Rocha's collection. The black, white and neutral colour palette make each piece easy to wear and easy to piece together with things in your existing wardrobe. When you look closer at each piece you can see that there is more detail than at first sight.  Just look at the beading around the shoes! How gorgeous would they look with a pair of skinny jeans?

There is a lot of work in the design and construction of the pieces in this collection which make them so flattering. I can just imagine the black circle skirt with nude shoes and a lightweight blouse for an evening out during the summer - so classy.  I also adore the lace work on the nude dress, paired with simple accessories this would look very elegant for a dressy affair.

What is your favourite Simone Rocha piece?
