Fashion & Beauty

Simone Rocha

The first comprehensive book on the work of Simone Rocha, beloved Irish designer.

Simone Rocha emerged from the prestigious Central Saint Martins M.A. and upon the presentation of her first collection in 2010, and quickly garnered an instant following amongst fashion insiders and taste-makers, Adrian Joffe of Dover Street Market was an early fan. Borne from the deep and lush nature of her native home in Ireland, her designs are highly feminine, captivating, and infinitely dreamy. Her vision is one that seems to have no bounds—her highly singular designs have since reached a new set of followers that have since grown to include stylishly rebellious A-Listers like Rhianna, FKA Twigs, Billie Eilish, and Chloë Sevigny along with a devoted set of fashion darlings who don Rocha’s platform brogues, voluminous, almost gothic, dresses, and pearl shaped handbags in cities across the globe. Collaborations with brands like Moncler, H&M, and J Brand have also extended the visibility of her work on a serious level. This book is a long, pensive gaze into Rocha's subversive world, one heavily inspired by the work of Louise Bourgeois and, undeniably, Rei Kawakubo of Commes des Garcons. A natural bookmaker (she’s published an impressive number of incredibly collectible zines), it is insightfully edited, designed, and crafted, gathering catwalk images, shadowy editorials, and backstage imagery in a manner that stays true to the very nature of the dark and twisting world she’s created. An absolute essential for any fashion-lover’s bookshelf, this monograph is highly anticipated and set to follow in the footsteps of successful authors Rizzoli has published in the past including Ann Demuelemeester, Rick Owens, Jun Takahashi, and Maison Martin Margiela.
