Simone Rocha founded her eponymous womenswear label in 2010. Her father, John Rocha is also a highly successful fashion designer, and growing up with this influence, Simone always felt that she would follow in his footsteps. Taking inspiration from her Irish heritage and from nature, art and history, Simone Rocha creates distinctive collections of ready-to-wear, shoes, bags and accessories.
The brand is known for their romantic and feminine aesthetic met with a signature rebellious edge. Where ruffles, frills and bows feature throughout collections, so do unexpected shapes and subversive details, while soft colour palettes are disrupted by a use of black throughout designs. Voluminous silhouettes are seen across skirts, dresses and jackets, fashioned through luxurious tulle fabrics and extravagant layering. Puffed skirts are dramatic and intriguing, often adorned further with bold embellishments and intricate embroidery. Where silhouettes are looser and more fluid, drama is still instilled- this time through beautiful and delicate prints and vintage-inspired details. From cotton bow-front skirts and satin shirt dresses to head-turning taffeta dresses and brocade coats, Simone Rocha is consistently artful and exciting. Designs from the brand are perfectly finished with the label’s signature bold platform sandals, unique gold jewellery and beautiful beaded bags.
Simone Rocha has a store in London, and their designs can also be found online via the brand’s website and through stockists such as Matches Fashion, Farfetch and My Theresa.
