#SuzyLFW: Erdem And Simone Rocha – Can The Past Be Present?
Designers have to decide how much history can be stirred into modern shows.
This London Fashion Week, two designers looked for inspiration entirely from the past: Simone Rocha, who imagined the life of women in her native Ireland; and Erdem, who reinterpreted the world of English photographer and aesthete Cecil Beaton.
Here is my perspective on what worked, and what did not.
At Erdem’s show of silvered dresses and feathered headgear, he acted as though there was only one thing that counted – the image backstage of Cecil Beaton wearing a slim, silk, feminine outfit, playing dress-up with his sisters.

The show struck a fair balance between the dramatic story telling of Ireland’s past and pretty dresses with a forlorn sweetness. Even if the show ended with an all-white dress, where head and shoulders hidden behind white lace were seemingly committed to a Roman Catholic world, the Simone Rocha Autumn/Winter 2020 collection was a perfect balance between story telling and desirable clothes.
