A gaggle of the industry's best dressed filed into their seats at Simone Rocha and there was an air of excitement. The designer's previous collections have taken London by storm and as the front row chattered it was easy to see their anticipation. Dark drum beats filled the room and the first model stepped onto the catwalk. What followed was a collection that managed to be simultaneously girly and androgynous, pretty and tough, intricately detailed and perfectly clean.


Rocha and her stylist Celestine Cooney chose to shun tradition and had their girls walk in stacked brogues with neon soles – take note girls, this looks set to become a serious trend! Boxy tunics and structured tanks sat next to corded lace and gossamer layers sat over flippy knitted skirts. Wide necklines were crocheted and peplums bobbed on the models' hips. Hard silver shone on tops and jackets, contrasting perfectly with the sheer panelling and sugary shades that the designer's become synonymous with.


Co-ords continued to play a big part, with neat suits in short, glossy faux fur and double breasted jackets matched with simple bottoms. There was an understated feel to the proceedings, offset with frothy, girly touches like a lace bustle or a hint of subtle sparkle. Simone Rocha's collection was a lesson in simple luxury, and it's a class we'd definitely take again!
