Ruffled-panel gingham cotton dress


Simone Rocha can always be relied upon to create experimental designs with a feminine spirit. A fine example this black and white gingham cotton-poplin dress is shaped to a shirt-like silhouette with a point collar and button-fastening cuffs - note the intricate black bead embellishment on both - and has a smocked front panel complete with rows of ruffled trim. Accentuate the pared-back feel of the knee-grazing curved hem with chunky patent-leather slides.
