Roland Mouret Celebrates 20 Years of Sexy, Sophisticated Style
Roland Mouret made a very welcome return to the London Fashion Week schedule this season. The designer, who is known for his artfully-constructed pieces (who can forget the iconic Galaxy dress?), is celebrating 20 years in the fashion industry. He brought his show back to London from Paris in celebration.
Mouret offered a nostalgic look at all the things that made him such a success over the last two decades. While other London designers may look to whimsy or novelty, there was no such approach here. Neither did he just send out reworkings of "greatest hits" — instead he offered up a study of the Mouret woman. Draping off-shoulder silhouettes and artful use of colour were key, and the finished look was sexy, sophisticated, confident, and timeless.
