Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge is expected to be delighted with the news that H&M is collaborating with designer Simone Rocha.

After all, the Duchess is a fan as she was spotted wearing a pair of Simone Rocha designed earrings for her 39th birthday photo earlier this month.

Launching in March, the Simone Rocha x H&M partnership will see the creation of an accessible range - with puff sleeves, ruffles, and plenty of volume.

It's understood both Duchess Kate and Meghan Markle love the brand - Kate in particular loves her signature statement earrings so she will be delighted that it's been confirmed that there will be affordable jewelry as part of the line, too. 

Also revealed, the Simone Rocha x H&M collection will include signature womenswear, footwear, alongside menswear and childrenswear - and there's set to be tartan, beading, florals, pinks, reds, and bespoke fabrics that were developed in-house especially for the range. 

And Kate is a fan of tartan too - having recently wrapped up in a red tartan scarf.


Speaking about the collaboration, Simone Rocha said, "I am so thrilled to be working with H&M on this very special collection. It truly is a celebration of the signatures of my brand, and the influences that have shaped me. 

"As a designer, and as a customer, I've been such a fan of the H&M collaboration concept. Margiela, Alber Elbaz, Comme des Garcons – it's such an amazing list of alumni to be a part of."

Shoppers will be given a sneak-peek of the items in February, with the line going on sale on the 11th of March.

H&M teased fans in a response to a question on whether footwear will be included. They replied, 'We're as excited as you for our upcoming collab! The collection will include footwear. As we approach the release date, we will provide more insight into the ultra-chic world of Simone Rocha. Coming sooner!'

The brand already has a beautiful campaign lined up for the release, featuring the likes of Daisy Edgar-Jones and sisters Adwoa Aboah and Kesewa Aboah. And it looks like we're all in for a treat - feast your eyes on Bridgerton regencycore style - with an abundance of hair clips, pretty broderie, floral dresses, and pearls aplenty!
