Simone Rocha found her inspiration in her lastest trip to Tokyo. The runway was filled with soft pinks, white and green regarding major colors. For textile, the designer chose to create contrast through a mix of sheer lace and harder cottons. The most striking element, the one that bound these pieces together, was the harnessing that criss-crossed every look. Rocha let go of some of her structure this season with rich coloured silk printed.
