Simone Rocha, London's new golden girl whose been busy ushering in a wave of innovation, is the designer to be decked out in for spring.
When it comes to dressing for that unpredictable season that can offer a hopeful glimpse of the summer to come or flash showers from heavy grey skies, the Central Saint Martins graduate is the go-to.
Her spring/summer 2012 collection saw delicate lace trapped between sheets of perspex in the form of skirts, shirts and trenches with her minimalism standing out amongst the London print scene. And it's from beneath the plastic of her trench that New York's offering's get a look in too. The bright yellow dress under the plastic is courtesy of Jason Wu with the gentle layers of chiffon giving an ultra-feminine feel. Wu is the favourite of groomed New Yorkers thanks to his red carpet show stoppers, ladylike dresses and precision tailoring. And together with the final touch of the Prada bag the polished cool look is complete.
Blustery days ahead or scorchers, it's Rocha and Wu that well be reaching for.
