Discover Roland Mouret‘s Spring Summer 2019 Collection inspired by women who unapologetically own their sexuality, and tenacious women such as Emma Gonzalez who demonstrate confidence and fight to make change happen, presented on September 16th, at the National Theatre, during the ongoing London Fashion Week.
“A detailed conversation with the female subject is evident in this collection which is inspired too by the Yonic symbolism (from Sanskrit yoni) seen throughout the work of feminist artist Judy Chicago, exploring the most sensuous motif of the female form through a selection of brooches, necklaces and badges made in collaboration with esteemed artist Mehrnoosh Khadivi of Craftwork Studios.
Roland introduces a collection that features button-down pencil skirts, shoulder baring dresses and high-waisted wide-leg trousers with suggestive lace-up details. Liberation and control is given in the freedom of movement with loose silhouettes and softly tailored power suits. Slits and exposed lace panels offer glimpses of the thighs in stride, whilst ultra-plunging necklines unashamedly alleviate one of the most overtly sexual parts of the female form. Statement looks, in a summery pastel palette with graphic prints and bold stripes, are complimented with sensual silk rope-tie sandals and pointed lace-up mules. Collectively, the aesthetic at times pivots away from sexuality and is instead overcome with a pronouncement of incredible female independence.“
