Visit the Simone Rocha SS20 installation at Dover Street Market
To celebrate London Fashion Week, Dover Street Market on Haymarket will be home to a Simone Rocha installation. Drawing inspiration from the pastoral aesthetic of Irish ‘Wrenboys’ who used to dress in straw and sing songs from door to door on Wren Day, this striking installation, in line with Rocha’s SS20 collection, is not to be missed. Fashion enthusiasts will also have the chance to take home limited-edition zines, exclusive to Dover Street Market and Simone Rocha stores. The installation will be in-store until the end of February.
