British brand Roland Mouret reached international level long ago and today the outfit designs by French designer Roland Mouret can be found not only in single-brand boutiques around the world, but also in the most prestigious shopping centers. The breathtaking beauty of the designs, high quality, well-thought and ingenious looks that the French designer creates are those distinctive attributes that are only characteristic of the renowned French-British brand. The famous Galaxy dress that provided Mouret’s breakthrough into the fashion world and made the name “Roland Mouret” known to everybody interested in fashion is still worn to this day by the fans of the feminine and simply elegant.
The Roland Mouret spring/summer 2015 collection was designed by using purely pastel colors and a casually elegant style. The collection started off with a gorgeous sleeveless figure hugging pastel green dress, followed by A-line skirts and shorts in the same color, which had been combined with all white smart zip up jackets and sleeveless tops. Mouret also presented white zip up long-sleeved dresses with buttoned cuffs, a V-neck maxi dress with wide straps and sleeveless white lace dresses.
For his new collection Mouret had put the emphasis on the asymmetry of pieces and gave some of the pieces some sort of ragged look by leaving the hems of dresses and skirts as fringy as they were. Until the very last stages of the show, the colors were kept on a mild and pale note; we had dresses created by combining patches of light yellow, orange, blue, purple and white, pale yellow loose fitting smart pants with sleeveless collared shirts, midi sleeveless dresses patterned with diagonal stripes in pastel tones and so on. The peculiarity of the dresses and tops presented here laid in the interesting belts on the dresses that were simply tied around the waists of models and ended in tight knots up on the front; and in rather one-of-a-kind necklines, straps and collars. Here nothing was ordinary: the two straps on dresses matched neither in color nor in width, the collars that were in black most of the time seemed rather detached from the tops and dresses, but at the same time complemented them perfectly. We didn’t have clear-cut V-necks either as we saw asymmetries here as well. Also memorable were the skirts and dresses with big orchid prints on the backdrop of textured purple and gray.
Trying to end the show in brighter and more eye catching pieces, Mouret had designed a whole array of pieces in deep orange: there were off-the-shoulder asymmetrical dresses, A-line skirts, which he combined with one-shoulder tops in black, a matching pair of pants and zip up V-neck tops, high waisted loose shorts with short tops with bell sleeves and cutouts around shoulders and a very gorgeous high waisted pencil skirt with a small, sleeveless matching top. As accessories, the collection presented small clutches again in pastel color shades.
If you are one of those, who appreciate the combination of the elegant and simple, the new Roland Mouret spring/summer 2015 collection can be a great way of adding a little bit of pastel shades to your wardrobes.
