The Autumn Winter London Fashion Week was is always something I look forward to, and was even more special this year to see one of India’s leading fashion houses – Rocky Star, on the runway. Rocky Star is a visionary of the Indian fashion scene, always looking at ways of amalgamating traditional, yet innovative designs in his high fashion pieces. With textures and designs employing some of our heritage’s oldest crafts into modern couture, the Rocky Star label embodies bold aesthetics in simple and comfortable silhouettes for men and women.
The Rocky Star Autumn Winter 2020 collection is a revival of some of the brand’s signature styles, patterns, embroideries and aesthetics from its previous collections, some of which, in classic Rocky Star style, were a nod to the Baroque and Gothic time periods. The brand breathes new life into each of these pieces from its stylish past, making them pertinent to current times.
The collection features bomber jackets, faux leather trenches, and tailored jackets, paired with voluminous skirts, flared trousers and signature trousers. Going bold and classic with black as the background, the fashion house has got a slew of sequins, lace, feathers, ruffles and pleats to the forefront with metallic accents and threadwork, bringing futuristic designs to the fashion scene.
Each piece has been cleverly curated to mix and match with others from the collection, making it ideal for those who prefer a minimalist wardrobe with maximum impact. The textures and intricate work are perfect for a pop of warmth and glamour in the setting of the cold weather, bringing back the excitement into everyday dressing.
Two of my favourite ensembles from the collection are an oversized black jumper with a multi-colour metallic sequined skirt finished in a gathered hem, and a silver sequined check suit with a sleek black faux leather collar and belt. Be it street style or elegant occasionwear, I am looking forward to introducing the Rocky Star Autumn Winter 2020 collection to my wardrobe.
