Simone Rocha at Topshop








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.

Felder Felder SS’12











Give me some of that!

One of the absolute highlights of London Fashion Week for me was Felder Felder’s SS’12 runway show. Known for their modern, sexy and extremely wearable designs, the German sister act celebrate the glamorous, charismatic woman with a definite wild side. They had already won me over massively with their dangerously cool leather and feather creations as seen in their AW’11 collection, and this week, they’ve done it again. And with a LFW runway show entitled “BANG!”, I knew to expect big things…

They certainly didn’t disappoint. Strutting down the Felder Felder catwalk this week was plenty of signature body con, sheer paneling, studs and of course, the timeless leather biker jacket. But this season, they have provided light among the dark by peppering their usual rock-and-roll monochrome with sheer, sorbet-coloured printed maxi dresses and frosty metallic skater-skirt silhouettes.

Grungy gloss at its best.
