Roland Mouret goes bold and beautiful at PFW
Roland Mouret went cuckoo for colourblock in his Autumn/Winter 15 range.
The French designer opened the third day of Paris Fashion Week this morning with a striking collection of clothes suitable for all occasions, from daywear to evening ensembles.
The show kicked off with a chic monochrome dogtooth-print jacket, black on the outside and white inside, worn over a matching black top and white high-waisted skirt. The skirt made another appearance, as did the pattern on a cropped bomber-style jacket with black panels on the front.
Also on offer was a bright sky blue shade in the form of a sleeveless dress with a pleated skirt. Other colourblocking came in the form of red separates, burgundy pieces and yellow dresses.
A striking wrap jacket, fastened with a black belt and paired with matching tailored skinny trousers, also made it down the runway.
Roland catered to the female form with all his creations but one look was particularly bold. A model walked in a long-sleeved, sheer top that offered a glimpse of her bare chest, worn with black-and-white Aztec trousers.
Like the dogtooth, Aztec was incorporated into several designs, such as a dress with white strips on the skirt and shoulder.
Things got a little edgier towards the end of the presentation, when leather came on the scene. A model strutted in a dark green and grey coat made of the material, while another rocked a skirt in the same style.
Carven's show followed, marking the first line by the brand's new designers Alexis Martial and Adrien Caillaudaud. The pair had been working on the Autumn/Winter 15 range for some time before their new roles were announced earlier this week.
The line was full of pieces with Parisian flare, such as a white collared blouse with sheer sleeves and a pair of high-waisted trousers paired with a patterned top with long billowy sleeves.
Also set to show today are Rick Owens and Lanvin.
