At Simone Rocha, Wet-Look Hair Gets a Religious Twist

It’s an exciting time for Simone Rocha, who celebrated her brand’s 10-year anniversary last week with a party at Dover Street Market, where she unveiled a series of limited-edition tablecloths made using fabrics from her archive. Next, on September 20, she presented her spring/summer 2022 collection in the medieval Church of St Bartholomew—a fitting backdrop for what was an ode to religious childhood rituals and the sacred bond between mother and child.

The classic Simone Rocha silhouettes were all present, but reimagined through the themes of ceremony and birth, with nods to Communion dresses and nursing bras.

Leaning into these themes, make-up artist Thomas de Kluyver, inspired by Rocha’s daughter, Valentine, mixed pastel glitters sourced on a trip to Tokyo with special transfer designs that he printed in his studio and dotted over models’ faces, hands and bodies. “We wanted to do something that felt very naive and dreamlike, but also with a darkness to it too,” he explained.

Meanwhile, hairstylist Cyndia Harvey teased out themes of religious ritual—of baptism and Holy Communion in particular—with high-gloss, wet-look hair to evoke what she describes as “a key feeling of ‘wetting the baby’s head’.”

“We contrasted this jarring, sticky texture with an innocent and naive shape, referencing old imagery of little girls at their first Holy Communion, as well as sweet cherub hairstyles depicted in Gothic Catholic artworks.”

And to top it all off? Rocha’s signature whimsical embellished barrettes were strategically placed throughout.
