A champagne reception marked the launch of Simone Rocha’s AW23 menswear collection at Havana. See all the guests in attendance …
Last evening, Nikki Creedon’s boutique in Donnybrook played host to an intimate cocktail party, in honour of Simone Rocha. The designer arrived with her mum and business partner Odette. Both on a flying visit from London where the whole Rocha family is now based, they are wearing black, “our daily uniform”, says Simone.
Uniform does not do this justice: a black Moncler coat from her collaboration with the brand in AW18, under embellished layers, and a dress, luxe leather bag and “hard” shoes of her own design: “I love a mix of something very practical with something very fancy.”
The boutique was transformed with Rocha-only rails, highlighting the strength and breadth of this successful designer’s men’s and women’s collections. Havana owner, Nikki Creedon, savant discoverer of labels and trends, is rocking a smartly tailored black jacket from the menswear collection, over a Rocha tulle skirt (this menswear collection is one that women will beg, steal and borrow). Her Havana team, in signature Simone voluminous black lace and embellished tailoring, have masterminded the displays of exquisite jewellery which line the space, surrounded by rails of new season hero buys. See it quick, before it is snapped up!
