Last week, London-based designer Roland Mouret got a touch of the exotic East when he visited Hong Kong to debut an exclusive capsule collection called RM by Roland Mouret for luxury department store Lane Crawford. Mouret was tapped exclusively by the department store to create the capsule line for their Chinese clientele. The versatile, five-piece collection features three pencil dress styles and two multipurpose garments including the “Attis Carre”, which doubles as a top and skirt. Mouret said he based the collection on his interpretation of Chinese
style as a balance between powerful femininity and urban strength.
There are only 14 pieces of each design from the capsule collection
split between Lane Crawford’s Hong Kong and Beijing stores. Tops from the collection will retail at 4,500 Hong Kong dollars, or about $580, and dresses up to 15,900 Hong Kong dollars, or about $2,000. Mouret said he feels his iconic silhouette is perfectly formed for the
petite Asian frame. “My designs are also very distinct but laidback,
sexy but not in your face which I believe work very well for this
[Asian] market,” he said.
