This season’s collection from Roland Mouret was inspired by everything Parisian – and especially Catherine Deneuve in The Hunger. “I’ve realised how much this city influences me, I’ve become more Parisian. There is something so special here and what fashion is about – it’s not like Milan or New York,” he told Vogue backstage.
Pieces of Note: Taking those futuristic shapes from the club scene of The Hunger, trousers were experimental shapes, whilst shoulders were sharp and angular, as we’ve come to expect from Roland Mouret. It was an exploration of shape – diamond shapes turning into peplums of the waist, panels of red/green/black leopard print on body con dresses, and full-length zips on trousers to imitate those on the dresses and biker jackets. Oh, and the cross-body bags – the first in 15 years to make it down the catwalk.
Style: Draping and body con, it was an adventure in shape and form – described by the designer himself as “still quite body-con but without the waist emphasis. It’s more military, there’s a quirkiness to trousers”.
