Simone Rocha imagined a romantic woman jumping over puddles in her pure white dresses. The designer managed to reconcile the elegance of lace and needlework with practicality, placing her models in rubber boots perfectly suited to the outfits. An abundance of broderie anglaise layers was worn with trenches that revealed the party dresses beneath. Knots were a recurring theme, as was harmonious asymmetry which added movement with lace insets and ruches. Alongside the dominant white, a Prince of Wales was irreverently used in outfits with puff sleeves and trousers ruched at the knee and hem. Elsewhere, gingham was used as a background for floral patterns. The transparencies were innocently seductive, thanks to the use of pvc. The combination of yellow and green was reminiscent of the light amongst lemon trees.
