This week saw Irish designer Simone Rocha take on her first solo show at London Fashion Week, firmly cementing her status as the new one to watch on the fashion scene – and it’s not just her identifiable surname which is earning her some serious cool points.
Tapping into this season’s unceasing androgony trend, the 25 year old daughter of fashion legend John Rocha has been whipping up a storm with her AW’11 Topshop collection, which sees her adding touches of femininity to classic tailored staples to create novel yet wearable designs.
The collection features six beautifully tailored pieces and androgynous silhouettes with her signature feminine twist. On offer are chic, crisp white poplin shirts with gossamer thin, neon sleeves and classic black blazers with contrasting cable knit detail.
Simone Rocha at Topshop successfully ticks the box for the androgynous, heritage and colour blocking trends all in one collection – her fingers couldn’t be more on the fashion pulse if they tried.
