Simone Rocha

Simone Rocha can cut according to, and she certainly can! Since growing up in Dublin, Ireland, raised by her esteemed fashion designer father John Rocha, it was no surprise that Simone would make the fashion headlines with her younger approach to fashion and luxurious choice of fabrics. This girl is definitely one to watch. After just two years graduating from Central St. Martins, Rocha is already on the London Fashion Week schedule.

With J.W Anderson, Edun and now Simone, it seems the Irish might just take over the fashion world.

The Art Of Colour

It’s time for colour to hit the streets again as Spring/Summer 2011’s biggest trend. From pink and yellow to blue and green, this trend is bound to get you into the summer feeling.

Vogue Italia Colour Shoot Feb 2011

Prada dipped into the trend by adding colour to boxy shapes and stripes creating a multicolour affect while Gucci went for a cleaner colour-blocking look inspired by the 1970’s. At Jil Sander, Raf Simon’s take on the trend was through prints of roses overlapping each other. There is plenty of choice for this trend that anyone can splurge into so do not be afraid.

Colour trend interpreted through stripes

For Men, look at Prada (boxy shapes again), Balenciaga for a monochrome look with pops of yellow, Tommy Hilfiger for a suit in any colour of the rainbow and Jil Sander again grabbing you deep into a kalediscope of vibrant colours.

Jil Sander SS/11 Menswear

If you absolutely hate colour and wish never to be seen in anything light and bright then try Bottega Venetta. Here Tomas Maier decided to be daring and disagree with this seasons biggest trend starting his show with….black. If you feel adventurous enough to continue to spread this trend, then I wish you a wonderful, cool and colourful season.
