Simone Rocha AW’16
Simone Rocha has been very busy as of late. With the birth of her daughter, Valentine, just three months ago, it look’s like pregnancy and birth gave huge inspiration to the 29-year old and her AW16 collection.Speaking to Vogue Simone commented on her LFW looks, she stated “I’d just given birth so I was thinking about the female form, giving birth, Victorian matrons, lilacs, swaddling…”
The collection itself was a dreamy extravagant affair with heavy emphasis on the Victorian feel. Floaty overtly feminine dresses layered, button-up backs left unfastened, tulle bows, high necklines. Big shapes and rough outlines were prominent. Oversized coats with black fur draped around the neck and embellished with jewels. A show-stopper bubblegum pink tweed coat, stole the show.
All 41 of the model’s eyes were laden with heavy kohl, almost mimicking the look of bags under the eyes.and a single drop earring. Their hair was piled into a neat chignon and then teased and pulled to almost resemble a birds nest. Motherhood certainly inspired Simone for this show, the love, exhaustion and hard work is evident in each piece. Here are some of our favourite looks from Simone’s LFW show.Regram @wmag A photo posted by SIMONE ROCHA (@simonerocha_) on
