First Look: Roland Mouret's Classically Svelte Collection for Banana Republic
Roland Mouret is set to design a limited-edition capsule collection for Banana Republic, which will hit stores in early August. A favorite of perfectly polished ladies like Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, Kate Middleton, and Naomi Watts, Mouret is most known for his wow-worthy and figure-flattering red carpet dresses, which are sure to meld nicely with Banana Republic's classic aesthetic. The nearly 30-piece collection will highlight Mouret's understanding of fit using Banana Republic's signature body contouring stretch fabric, and will feature dresses, skirts, tops, blazers, pants, and accessories.
"Partnering with Banana Republic on this project was such an adventure for me," says Mouret. "The common goal for this collection is to offer incredible fit through an assortment of hourglass silhouettes using Banana Republic’s Sloan fabric, extending my love of structure into accessible prices. These pieces are multi-functional for the modern woman to wear and accessorize in her own way, making her always ready for life’s journey."
The Roland Mouret for Banana Republic Collection includes bold colorblocking, graphic perforated details, leopard prints, and playful proportions, and prices for the line will range from $49.50 to $165.
"I’m so inspired by Roland’s skill for draping and attention to fit," says Banana Republic VP of Women’s Design, Melloney Birkett. "He has such a strong sense of how to dress a woman, and brings a beautiful sensuality to his work. Roland’s vision really matched ours as we worked together to use his design expertise as a build to Banana Republic’s Sloan fabric to create a truly covetable collection." Look for the full collection in select Banana Republic stores and on bananarepublic.com in August.
