top 5 simone rocha spring/summer 14 moments

For spring/summer 14, Simone Rocha's softly seductive romantic daydreams took on a darker, more provocative edge. The innocence of previous collections oozed confidence, menace even.

  • 1. hair raising

    The last of the mohicans? Anything but in Simone's world. Working with James Pecis, all hair was raised in platted mohawks and styled with a care-free attitude.
