Simone Rocha: Ready-to-wear SS16
You know that Stevie Nicks song, Leather and Lace? Well think of this as chiffon and harness. It’s all about that mix of soft and hard. Except that in this case the softness comes in the form of delicately coloured chiffon tea dresses, the hardness in the form of either black rope or clear tubing plaited almost harness type straps that criss crossed across the torso, adding just the small hint of S&M to the sense of etherealness that permeated the whole collection.
