Situated within a hybrid space of exuberance and serenity,
Simone Rocha’s newest collection experiments with prints and silhouettes of the Tang Dynasty,
synthesizing its stylistic elements with the romance of the Baroque era.
The pieces exhibit an outburst of embroidered flowers on tulle, long trembling veils, and bulbous shapes
—possessing a body of textural and delicate sensibilities.
The balance of Eastern and Western undertones draw
attention to the designer’s own multicultural heritage,
seductively paying homage to her
Chinese and Irish identity.
