Sting cheers on French designer Roland Mouret
Saturday 02 October 2010
Pop star Sting and his wife Trudie Styler took up front-row seats Friday as France's Roland Mouret, whose sensual evening wear is a hit in American socialite circles, unveiled his look for next summer.
Delicate bustiers were draped lightly over the chest, in diamond shapes that plunged deep - but not as deep as previous seasons.
Bare-backed dresses fell immaculately, in frank greens and marine blues, while pleats under the breasts flattered the silhouette and asymetrical dresses left a shoulder bare, or the small of the back.
"We loved it. We are very devoted to Roland," Styler told AFP afterwards.
Other dresses were more structured, with sculpted shoulders and sexy slits at the back of each calf, in tune with the models' hair, swept cleanly back into tight pony-tails.
A series of black evening dresses, pinned in place with sophisticated straps and braces, moulded the body down to mid-calf.
Rare splashes of masculine contrast came from small sahara jackets, or wide sqaure pants in charcoal grey with black hemming.
Mouret was showing a collection under his own name for the first time since 2005, after temporarily losing the rights to his name in 2005. Since then he was forced to use the brand "RM by Roland Mouret."
The designer is setting up shop next Spring in central London in a six-floor building opposite the Connaught Hotel in the heart of upmarket Mayfair - which is to host his headquarters, his workshop, a showroom and a flagship boutique.
