4 MONCLER SIMONE ROCHA
READY FOR THE GREAT OUTDOORS
For her Fall tie-up with Moncler, acclaimed Irish designer Simone Rocha balanced her signature romantic shapes, volumes and embellishments with the Moncler sense of utility and practicality. The result is a high-tech Snow Queen charm with awe-inspiring pieces made for protection against the elements, a core Moncler value according to the designer.
Shapes are voluminous, often cut on the bias, and meticulously adorned with poetic ruffles, bibs, layers, pearls, strings and flower motifs, of course, a Rocha mainstay. Inspired by the uniforms and artefacts of girl guide troops, Rocha blends luxe with functionality and creativity. The key piece is the voluminous puffer cape with ropes that allow to adjust the volume. Other staples include ruffled dresses, daisy-patterned puffers and multi-tier coats in a palette of white, blush, red, blue and black.
