Simone Rocha subverts sacramental dress for SS17
Fashion can be a lot of things – it can be fun, theatrical, poetic, political and provocative. Other times however, it can be just plain beautiful, as it was yesterday at Simone Rocha’s SS17 runway show. Staged at Southwark Cathedral, the show saw models walk down the catwalk, or rather aisle, clad in festoons of lace and organza, crystals and pearls. For a few minutes, you forgot about the crowds of people and photographers outside and left behind the traffic-jammed streets.

Relative Overexposure by Omtura
“Relative Overexposure” collection SS`16 was presented for the first time in Paris during Men’s Paris Fashion Week. Handmade leather bags designed by Omtura are inspired by minimalist architectural lines and shapes combined with aspects of tribalism. Each item – an artifact, a power object, holds a craft known only to its owner. With straight diagonal cuts, carefully placed details and traditional handmade craftsmanship – no piece is the same.
