The designer that almost single handedly bought back womanly curves in dresses with his Galaxy dress, is returning to the fashion runway.
Put a big red circle around July, because that is when Roland Mouret will be back on the catwalk with a Haute Couture collection for the Paris couture shows.
The satellite collection will be called RM, featuring Mouret’s “signature draping techniques” and fine tailored “must have” pieces including iconic dresses, jackets, skirts and trousers. “The idea of this satellite collection is for me to be able to express the most concentrated vision of my ideas of dressing women and to deliver that vision to them in the shortest time possible,” said Mouret.
“This collection of no more than 21 looks will focus on signature silhouettes and key pieces that I believe women demand. I want to celebrate women with this collection – they are my greatest source of inspiration.”
This will be the first independent project Mouret has taken on board since he left his namesake company, and since his collection for GAP sold out within hours of hitting the shelves.
If the graceful forties gown in a ivory grey chiffon worn by Luca Gadjus (pictured right) at the Mouret and Simon Fuller partnership announcement last September was anything to go by last September, then it’s going to be one very expensive but sell out collection that will hit stores in November.
