Designer: Roland MouretInspiration: At the National Theatre in London next to the River Thames with light shining on bay windows, Roland Mouret poses the question of responsible and sustainable fashion. He also explores different ways to dress with men wearing feminine clothes and models wearing bigger sizes. It’s a way of presenting items, similar to when you visit a second hand shop and you fall in love with a jacket in whatever size, but you love it enough to wear it.Collection: Well thought out colours such as a passionate red that is extremely present throughout this new collection. Suit trousers with detailed stitching and well-made backs, double-breasted blazers and some items made from bamboo. Fluidity is seen through multiple dresses and skirts with draping sides creating volume and movement. A touch of prints and silver for a festive spirit as the Mouret woman loves elegance and staying out until the end of the night…Note: The white suit trouser at the end and Cindy Bruna who walks with a dog on the podium.Interview with Roland Mouret:This year I wanted to start from something symbolic as today, our work is on our values more than on our products. Fashion is the second most polluting industry on the planet, so we justify our work to find solutions and not create problems and I think that the concept of style is an answer to consumption. I believe that an item of clothing has the right to exist in a wardrobe regardless of size or sex.I currently really like the tailoring of fluidity. It’s something new that I can link with my past and my draping skills so I really enjoy it.This print was inspired by the 1920s, the blend of craft and quilt from the 20s with the electronic side of distortion and the patchwork of shadow and light graphics.I would not be the son of a butcher if I didn’t like red.Music from the show (for use only in context of the show, under cover of the right to information).
