Paris…RM Roland Mouret

Previously showing in New York with a collection under his namesake, Roland Mouret went back to his homeland of Paris last year and renamed it “RM Roland Mouret.” His F/W 09 “careerwear” collection expressed all of his strong points (tailoring and sleek dresses) with a new component, knitwear. Boat neck sweaters and ruffle-front cut-and-sew knits were worn with asymmetrical pencil skirts with slits in either the front or the back. Dresses in varying lengths represented his philosophy of one shape working as either a tunic, top or dress. These “TTDs,” worn with crocodile-embossed leggings in eroded metallics, looked appropriate for the office yet right for evening. Side-zipped jackets were sculpted with leaf appliqués on cropped and long versions. A pleat front menswear trouser was tapered at the ankle to expose black heals that stenciled the foot in gold trim.
