Best known recently for his ‘Five Dresses’ for Gap last November, designer Roland Mouret will debut a high-end capsule
collection in July during the Paris couture
collection, RM, by the designer Roland Mouret, is the first under his
new joint venture company, 19RM, formed last fall with Simon Fuller after his former partnership — with
Sharai and Andre Meyers — ended. Mouret quit Roland Mouret Design Ltd.
in spring 2006, but the Meyers still own the Roland Mouret name.
Just to wet the U.S. appetite, he has created a dress
that will be sold exclusively at Bergdorf Goodman beginning Monday. The new collection
will be made up entirely of tailored pieces consisting of dresses,
jackets, skirts, coats, tops and trousers.
A spokesman commented Mouret chose Paris because "it’s a
great calendar to show alongside." The collection will be priced in
line with Lanvin, Balenciaga and Chanel.
Well, there’s always the Gap…for now.
