Roland Mouret Show- Women's collection Spring/Summer 2018 in London (with interview)

Designer: Roland MouretAtmosphere: The power of women. The designer is inspired by the Women’s March which took place at the beginning of the year, as well as women such as Frida Kahlo and Georgie O’Keeffe. Collection: Pleated dresses and floral silk skirts. The bustier is always important, with a play on asymmetry and graphic cuts. Transparency is present on some monochrome sheath dresses and shirts are embroidered with oversized flowers. To note: The location, the National Theatre of London on the bank of the Thames, the reminder of this now famous zipper along the back and accessories: a necklace with carved heart around the neck. Interview with Roland MouretI’m opening the doors now, or it begins with the materials, I put the materials in front of me and give myself a challenge. This woman, she’s surrounded by materials, the stuff of her grandparents, there’s always been, with grandparents, these very fluid fabrics, curtains and blankets, and for me it’s a memory of my family. It starts with the plaster corsets of Frida Kahlo, so it’s the idea of working on the upper body which is compartmentalized and after how the body reacts all round. It’s a woman who doesn’t have any shame in being a woman. I think that we’re returning to an era since last year and the women’s march, where we’re meeting more and more women who have understood that things will only change if they decide it and now they’ve started to decide it and it’s me as a man and as a designer, this is one of the most beautiful challenges I have, to dress these women.
