Roland Mouret clearly had the voluptuous womanly figure on his menacing mind as he created his 2015 Resort Collection. Inspired by paintings of Piet Mondrian, “I often think about geometry and the female form, and the challenge of how they can work together,” Mouret told WWD.
At his first intimate show in London, he discussed the inspiration and desire used in designing and constructing the pieces of his latest collection. Mouret carefully chose to create a color blocked coat, that zipped in the front, and used nylon mesh for the shorter skirts.
The pieces that stood out included a long teal dress, with triangular seams on the neck, and sternum that falls off of the shoulders. Another eye catching design was a black dress that criss-crosses in the front and mixes patterns to create texture and visual play. He utilized salmon colors, greens and turquoises. He even ventured to punch holes in coats and pencil skirts.
The pastel tones in the pieces help give his creations a fresh, light look, but his play with geometry in the silhouettes and overall designs of the pieces adds unexpected and daring a-symmetry that some called captivating.
