RM by Roland Mouret Spring 2010


If you expected the RM by Roland Mouret Spring 2010 collection to be full of the body conscious dresses which made him famous, you were in for a surprise because the designer presented a much looser silhouette for the majority of the collection which draped beautifully on the models who walked the laser lit runway.

I was seated near the runway exit so I got to see a lot of the details up close from the folds, to the pleats, to the gathered details.

Protruding pockets seemed to be the theme of this collection, creating an interesting silhouette.

With a more colourful palette including orange and cobalt blue alongside, black, navy, grey and nude, Mouret presented loose pants, adorable floaty tops, plunging dresses, cropped pants, chic striped hoodies, harem pants, and jumpsuits.

If you were expecting bod-con this collection included some stretched pieces with black-and-white stripes or nude. This nude dress should be dubbed the “the naked dress” after Carrie Bradshaw’s famous dress.

I was particularly drawn to the mustard striped pieces, which I later found out when speaking to Mouret after the show that this was an North African influence.

The North African theme I also felt translated into the big chunky statement necklaces, fringed gold shoulders, cuffs and armlets which were really spikey.

After the show I went backstage where I saw uber model Karlie Kloss being interviewed.

I also got to see the accessories up close, and the Christian Louboutin cage ankle boots which the models had worn.

The designer himself – Mr Louboutin – was in the front row which I found very interesting as I had also spotted him at the Todd Lynn Spring 2010 show during London Fashion Week, where his red soled heels also stormed the runway.

Mouret said that the collection was not particularly inspired by anything or person. When he designs he thinks about new innovative ways to flatter the female form.

This collection goes on sale November 15. I better start saving.

    I missed the fitted dresses.

    They are his signature, but since Victoria Beckham ripped him off, I guess he was forced to try something new

    nov 15th is indeed quick, that’s usually the arrival of cruise collections, no?

      Yes you’re right. For the customer this is the kind of timing we would all wish for.

    I love the slouchy, loose feel of all these pieces, very sensuous and light, love the pocket detail and I especially like the looks in the bottom row, the North African influenced ones, you could wear that last skirt a million ways! Also, nice picture with the designer – such a big beautiful smile!
