Roland Mouret Spring 2014: An Unexpected 80s-Inspired Lineup



Spring 2014 may mark the first season that Roland Mouret's collection was not immediately identifiable as one of his own, which, given how fantastic his signature cocktail dresses are, could have made for a disappointment. Luckily, it was anything but as the designer stepped out of his comfort zone with a more lighthearted and sporty collection.

An 80s feel was prevalent with the colorfully striped, patchworked and colorblocked motifs, especially when crop tops, cut-outs and sheer panels were involved.

Those looking for the designer's signature languid dresses will have less to choose from — especially in the neutral territory — but no matter the silhouette, Mouret's tailoring has always proven to be on point.
