Simone Rocha Exclusive Book Rocha was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1986. In 2008 she graduated with a BA in Fashion from The NCAD in Dublin followed by an MA from Central Saint Martins in 2010. Simone debuted at London Fashion Week in September 2010 and her collections can be found in some of the most prestigious stockists in the world.

Last year at the British Fashion Awards Simone received the “British Womenswear Designer Award” as well as the 2016 Harper’s Bazaar Designer of Year Award. This year Simone opened her first USA store in Soho, New York.

This superbly conceived publication is a limited edition production. The scale is a luxuriously large 420x305mm, portrait format, which flops and rolls beautifully.

Simone works on seasonal imagery and produces limited edition printed books featuring the works of collaborators and inspirations. Contributors for this book are Jacob Lillis, Eoin McLoughlin, Colin Dodgson, Louise Bourgeois, Perry Ogden, Ross McDonnell.
The publication is a collection of loose 4pp, forming spreads which Juxtapose the different subject. It is loose bound using a rubber band which holds it all together remarkably effectively for the size. The publication is a self cover, all produced on Omnia 120gsm.  Below you have Flowers and Cars (Jacob Lillis) with Pony Kids (Perry Ogden).

The publication is printed offset litho on our Omnia White 120gsm, the result is superb. The look and feel of the whole publication is very uncoated and tactile but there is absolutely no loss of detail in the images.
Above you have Simone Rocha collection on the left page (Colin Dodgson) with Louise Bourgeois on the right page. When the publication is disassembled, you can see the whole spread you can see in the below image

Below shows the publication separated into individual 4pp with the band removed.
The below image shows the outside back cover and the way that the band holds the folded 4pp unbound sections in place:
Art direction and design is by Simmonds. Print production, including the binding is by Pureprint.
