Another beautiful collection from Simone Rocha who showed opulent tiered and flounced dresses layered over trousers and suiting. Bright red plaid, bold florals and black lace met their counterpoint with a pale golden flowered brocade that was meant, according to the designer, to resemble a Constable landscape. Rocha took her inspiration from 19th-century fashion and incorporated this into the collection through her voluminous sleeves, the illusion of bared shoulders, and wide, open necklines. Everywhere swags of bows draped the models or were affixed to trousers, jackets and coats.
