NOVELTY | Simone Rochas ss11


Text by David Hellqvist, Photography by Morgan O'Donovan via Dazed Digital

David Helleqvist: What was the starting point for you?

Simone Rocha: It was the traditional Chinese mourning, everyone wears white. I visited my grandad’s grave in Hong Kong and it was stark white but had highlighted flowers and that’s where I got the colourful accessories from and the pink clothes. It’s tough but with a feeling of romance.

DH: You got a feeling that you it was originally quite minimal but made advanced through cutting out fabric etc

Simone Rocha: Exactly, I really admire traditionally garments, like crombies, and I like taking tailoring and trying to elevate it to something new and fresh. It’s about bringing them back to life again!

DH: Do you have a favourite piece from the show?

Simone Rocha: I really like the skeleton coat, which is exposing the interiors of the garment.

Love some of these pieces, but the designer's being inspired by mourning clothes is kinda weird :)

" nice sweater and I love the blurry overlapping first picture *About the diy cropped tee. It was pretty simple cutting it, though there is a little trick on how to get it 'symetrically assymetric'hmmm... buI might do a little video tutorial on it :)"

@ Ivania, oh thanks and thanks for the advice, I'll probably try to attempt this on my free time. Simone Rocha's collection is amazing, I think i can wear everything. Very inspirational post

I think I could stare at these photos all day. The clothes are so incredibly intriguing. I could just sit and analyze them for days.

Wow I actually really love the idea behind this collection. I know it's quite creepy but it's such a fresh and unusual idea, and kind of beautiful in a way, if you think about wearing mourning clothes and adorning graves with flowers and pretty colours as a sign of love and respect for lost loved ones. I love the look of it too, minimalistic but modern, eye-catching and very edgy in a pretty way, which is unusual. Great post. xxxx
