French-born, London-based designer Roland Mouret has joined forces with The Woolmark Company for an eight-piece capsule collection. The range features brightly-coloured tops, pants and dresses that embody Mouret's popular draping technique, all made from Australian Merino wool.
For Mouret, his signature style and Aussie wool served as the perfect combination. “I have always loved working with Australian Merino wool because it has an amazing quality that allows it to drape and hang beautifully," he explained to Woolmark. "The capsule collection, for me, was about how to introduce wool to the red carpet and to everyday life. It’s about brightness, it’s about colour therapy, and it’s about shaping the body."
The ready-to-wear collection also tapped Australian fashion blogger Nicole Warne of Gary Pepper to front the campaign. Warne, who is a proud wearer of red lipstick and known for her eye-catching colour combinations, couldn't be more fitting for the brand's aesthetic. "It's an absolute honour to finally share with you all the new @roland_mouret campaign we've kept secret for nearly 4 months!" Warne shared on her Instagram.
The range will be available exclusively at Australian department store Myer, as well as Roland Mouret's online store from July 17.
