With each new store, Simone takes the opportunity to create an intimate and unique retail atmosphere that offers her customer a chance to engage with the clothes physically and to experience and understand the fabrications and embellishments up close as well as exploring the narrative of her collections.

The 900-square-foot store located on Ice House Street, Central is a joint venture with I.T Group and will feature Simone’s signature Perspex furniture and hand-made sculptures, a balance of craft and modern materials that will be reimagined within the store each season.

Alongside these interiors will be hand-molded floral cornicing, pink marble and curated art pieces – including works by Ren Ri and Francis Bacon.

The store will explore continued inspirations of art, family, nature, Ireland and Asia through the store’s design and displays. It will be a platform to present the full range of product that the collections offer, including ready-to-wear, bags, shoes, knitwear and jewellery.

Simone Rocha, “I am very proud to be opening my first stand-alone store in Hong Kong, with the support of I.T Group after our long-term relationship of eight years. Their belief in my vision and creativity makes me very excited for our upcoming journey together.”
