The Roland Mouret spring/summer 2017 collection features a lot of architectural looks and textural interplay inspired by his process as he spent time designing and decorating his new flagship store at 1006 Madison Avenue in New York. The necklines were interesting all the way around, seeming as though most of the looks were designed around bringing the eye up.
Roland Mouret’s spring 2017 ready-to-wear collection showed off beautifully with a variety of looks that worked a lot on focusing attention. The ensembles had a very nice number of separates with great details that could be interchanged with other separates in the collection rather than singularly with the ensemble it was created for. The dresses, however, also featured an array of looks that were cute, many of which were accented with long grosgrain ribbons loosely wrapped around the necks of the models.
Starting off the collection we saw a lot of interesting bodices and various complementary necklines. Throughout the lineup were cut outs, mostly placed near or on the solar plexus. The asymmetrical necklines showed up in several different looks, some with a single shoulder, while others like the strapless peplum black top in look 34 over the sheer, patterned ankle-length skirt are complementary for a variety of body types and shapes.
The chicness of the line is indisputable, cleanly designed, even with all the patterns, cut outs and textiles used. The looks manage to not only meet a variety of designs and genres, but also fit into the spring and summer seasons very well.
All of the ensembles in the Roland Mouret spring/summer 2017 collection are designed to accentuate movement to make the walk of the wearer seem weightless and dreamlike. There were also a few interesting hemlines that were very sculptured, tapping into the architectural portion of designing the new flagship store and how much it affected his designing process.
The looks overall had a very cool sporty feel to them that has been popping up in several different spring and summer 2017 collections. The silhouettes vary without straying too far from being overall complementary.
Roland Mouret made certain to include several shapes, like stars designed with the use of the necklines and cut outs in order to keep the attention upwards in the beginning of the show. Towards the end of the Roland Mouret spring/summer 2017 runway presentation, the looks were designed to promote a full appreciation of the ensemble from top to bottom.
