For Fall/Winter 2014, Roland Mouret demonstrated marvelous command of geometric abstraction. He focused with hawk-eyed precision on enhancing the curves of the female form with angular points and the juxtaposition worked well. If you want your clothing to reflect your sense of creativity, then Mouret’s bounty of quirky, artistic looks are heading straight to your wardrobe. This collection is packed with slinky, sexy statement makers that err on the side of the avant-garde – a hip fusion if there ever was one.
Every ensemble featured stiff foldover collars that triangulated the throat, adding a sort of starchy austerity to the whole affair. Beneath the collars were a bevy of enticing dresses and separates. Mouret amplified small details to great ends, like the arrow effect of a zipper that split the middle of a royal blue look, and a body-conscious red dress sporting gill-like vents. Standout moments include a blocky mesh and knit cape, a printed vinyl jacket worn with a ribbon skirt, feather-adorned trousers, and a sinewy color-blocked maxi. Mouret’s measured and meticulous designs lent themselves to a dual-natured collection that put forward both polished poise and casual attitude at the same time.
