FFD Meets Paola Rodriguez

Beautiful knitwear, vintage inspired shapes & clothing that tells a story. Paola Rodriguez captured our hearts at LFW!

Focusing on hand embroidery & meticulous detailing, the collection is a stand out full of timeless classics. A contradiction? I think not! With fabrics from Italy coupled with manufacturing in France & the UK the collection has a air of sophistication whilst still being innovative and fresh.

What was the Inspiration for this collection?

Paola - "I'm inspired a lot by vintage, the shapes are just so classic and we are trying to create a collection that you will keep in your wardrobe forever. For me the collection is more about the individual pieces than the whole."

What is your favourite item?

Paola - "I love the knitwear, the embroidery starts off as my illustrations, as I started as a jewelry designer I have sketchbooks full of illustrations so these were the ones that made it onto the jumpers."

If you could dress anyone in Paola Rodriguez who would it be?

Paola - "Camille Bidault-Waddington, she has an amazing style!"

Designer Collaborations, who are you dying to work with?

Paola - "I love Simone Rocha, she would be my ultimate pick."

Dessert island item, what can't you live without?

Paola - "My Kids! Or Books...I think books would be more practical though!"
