Previously featured on FROCK&ROLL, fashion designer Maria Soromenho launched her new SS15 capsule collection The White Collection. The Portuguese-born designer, who lived in Lisbon, Paris, New York and London, has worked at some of the world’s most prestigious fashion houses, including Craig Lawrence, Peter Pilotto, and Diane von Furstenberg. Having a keen interest in the exploration of fashion, she aims to experiment and determine new techniques in modifying textiles. Her main focus is the connection between fashion and music – her exceptional pieces drip with rock’n’roll chic and her models are mainly musicians. Rose Elinor Dougall, Raissa (Loaded), Anto Cossu (Anto Dust) and Ana Stevenson model the WHITE COLLECTION for fashion that turns a lifestyle into a look.
Loaded are a brand-new band from East London. The four-piece masters a retro sound with iridescent guitar, shimmering through glow of opalescent effects and gently drifting haze of echoed drums and bass with vocals floating on warm jet streams without losing touch with the present.
Anto Dust is a London based quintet, led by vocalist and guitarist Anto Cossu who crafts songs consisting of a luscious blend of dreamy, psych pop and Shoegaze, where ethereal vocals and blissed out melodies take centre stage. Anto, originally hailing from Italy, possesses a charming wit and an unparalleled love for words, with which she has made herself a name within the London live gig circuit.
Rose Elinor Dougall
The former Pipette’s new album Stellular is due out spring 2015, the first new material since last year’s ‘Future Vanishes EP”, and her critically acclaimed 2010 debut album ‘Without Why’. A taste of what to expect from the forthcoming album, the new songs see Dougall continue to craft delicate, but infectious pop songs to great effect, which have seen her at times compared to Liz Fraser and Stereolab.
