Fashion and Style combined with Polyvore sets
Things were coming up roses for designer Roland Mouret recently, and what better way to infuse that feeling than into his latest collection for Spring/Summer 2015? When the 25th of September came, it’s clear that he conveyed that feeling into his latest collection. Given some of the great things that have happened to him as of late, such as the opening of his first US-based flagship store in NYC on the 14th of November, and being picked as a judge for “Project Runway: France”, M. Mouret wasted no time in making this feeling known and felt. From the diverse color palette down to the whimsical prints in some looks, the collection had a happy-go-lucky vibe about it. Nonetheless, this collection “feels like a return to basics”.
The color palette was diverse, but also done with some control to it, as models strutted down the catwalk in various eye-popping colors and whimsical prints. The color palette in question is orange, pastel yellow, pastel blue, red, gray, black, white, green, navy blue, olive green, brown, and royal purple. That happens to also be paired with various fabrics, such as cotton mesh, silk, waffled cotton, and linens, just to name a few. The collection was simply stunning, it was simple, but oh so stunning at the same time. Most looks show a mix and match color approach, whereas others sport a monochromatic look.
Models made their way down the runway in fisherman’s sandals, either flats or heels, sporting a clutch in their hand and a kimono obi belt/sash around their waists, showing us exactly that Mouret managed to reap what he had sown into this collection. Fringe trim was seen in some of his looks, located at the hem of a 1-shoulder sleeveless top and along the neckline of another 1-shoulder sleeveless top. This could also be seen in one look that featured a cropped, fitted, sleeveless boatneck top; only the fringe was located at the hem. Laser prints were used and often the main focal point in this collection, with the prints being done on cotton mesh. Pantsuits, skirt suits, and playsuits were a main part of the collection. Cropped tops and capelet tops were de rigeur along with 1-shoulder necklines and square necklines. There were dresses, most of them shift dresses or cocktail dresses with very few evening gowns. Pencil skirts and crop tops teamed up to make a rather seductive, yet simple look.
Skirts also had asymmetrical hemlines, along with shorts and circle skirts. Jackets were paneled to perfection, while one look sported a zip-front sleeveless blazer vest. Is it a blazer, or is it a vest? Who knows, that’s the fun! I loved this collection, it was minimalism done right! Color and print are capable of co-existing, you have to find away to make it work. It shows in the latest collection.
