When Roland Mouret created the world-famous “Galaxy” dress in 2006, he struck upon an enduring silhouette that landed him a spot in the annals of fashion history. After years of reworking the flattering, figure-hugging cut of the Galaxy into hundreds of alternate incarnations, he’s perfected the type of nip-tuck tailoring we crave. Spring/Summer 2015 puts a sporty, vibrant twist on previous efforts, while also exploring new types of fabric that added raw appeal to the presentation.
The dashing, ruggedly handsome designer hones in on the concept of “desire” for his Paris Fashion Week collection. Always pictured on the red carpet with a gorgeous muse on his arm wearing his equally gorgeous dresses, it’s easy to understand why we trust Mouret’s views on such matters. His show starts with a variety of springtime fresh looks in Kelly green and white, which fall beautifully around the curves of the body. He adds visual depth to crisp dresses with the use of raw cotton and bouclé fabrics, which are teamed with eyelet florals, preppy collars and flat, nebulous appliqués. Wavy blocks of color splice together great combinations like lilac, burnt orange, and buttery yellow on dresses and separates outfitted with cloth belts, tied at the waist. An electrifying array of siren red body-conscious dresses close the show, expressing Mouret’s “desire” message in concise terms. At Roland Mouret this season, expert tailoring and vivid color chemistry make for one of Fashion Month’s most enticing spring collections.
