Simone Rocha S/S 2013 Collection

Simone Rocha is a young designer.  In fact, this is only her 3rd solo showing at London Fashion Week.  The most common problem I see with young designers is a need to stand out.  Often the result of this enthusiasm is overworked designs that fail to come together as a collection.  But that isn’t the case in the Simone Rocha S/S 2013 Collection.

Rocha seems to know who she is as a designer.  She has a youthful vision that is balanced by an ability to edit.  For me, one of her most successful techniques is the texture play.  Just looking at the pieces I have an overwhelming desire to reach out and run my hand over them.  How often does that happen?!

Another fun element is the volume play.  The designs don’t focus on a single silhouette, but move from a narrow shift dress to an oversized swing coat.  Yet, each of these pieces feels easy and wearable.  Truly there is a shape for everyone!

Okay… enough talk.  More photos!  Take a look:

Tell me, what do you think of these pieces from the Simone Rocha S/S 2013 Collection?  Could you see yourself wearing any of them?  I want to know your thoughts!

  1. Hmm not as crazy about this one. THe third and fourth one caught my eye, though. Interesting structures.

  2. I LOVE 1,2,4 & 5.

    I like the yellow/green dress and her shoes! Today I have seen the gucci show! The collection is very beautiful!

  4. I am loving that lime green dress, though it maybe too short for me. The pattern reminds me of Kate (Princess lemon yellow dress) on her royal tours this week.

  5. As soon as I saw the dress in the second photo I knew exactly what you meant about texture and when you said you wanted to run your hand over them.

  6. You’re totally right on wanting to reach out and just touch the fabrics… =)

  7. Pretty! I love the last photo. Trapeze shapes are so dramatic!

  8. Like the third dress from the top, and the silhouettes. Not so crazy about the colours though — that’s soul sucking beige.

  9. Such cute shades of yellow!

  10. I really like this entire collection, maybe because it reminds me looking at pictures of my mom when she was in her 20’s. She had very similar wardrobe and she looked stunning.

  11. I love the little yellow dress 😉
