Forgotten Heroes by RoCoCo London

Style :

These spooky images are from RoCoCo London, a duo partnership label designed by Suneil Setiya and Angel, which has become a successful and desirable label.

This collection is very minimal, but uses some superb fabrics that drew inspiration from a reaction against modern society. The collection, to me, has echos of early McQueen with the fantasy, dark imagery attached to the collection. Also in doing this, the clothes in this story make them the focus of the shoot, not the models.

Morever, great thinkers and creatives such as James Dean, Marlon Brando, Jack Nicholson, Albert Einstein, Orson Welles, George Orwell are deep influences in the making of this 'Forgotton Heroes' collection.
This quality is reflected also in the making of the garments, using Italian cottons for the coats and suits but shows a slight ruggedness with the raw finishes and inside-out seam details. Jackets combined denim with suede and jersey. T-shirts, a staple for any designer, are combined with jersey and suede too, with prints such as the heart made of knives where aggressive meets soft.

RoCoCo launched this collection at the Paris Trade Fair in June, and will be coming to London Fashion Week in September. I look forward to seeing it, and the girls, then!
