Roland Mouret's sell-out Galaxy dress was an instant fashion hit; ultra-stylish, with sharp, modern tailoring and a faultlessly figure-flattering shape thanks to Mouret's concealed wonder web-style corset.
The Galaxy and the Moon dress that swiftly followed it did all the things every woman wants her perfect frock to do. His ultra-fitted frocks graced the curves of every celebrity from Victoria Beckham and Rachel Weisz to Carol Vorderman and an endless array of A-listers have subsequently turned to Roland's clever cutting and tailoring to make them red carpet-ready.
However in something of a departure for RM, he's worked his fashion magic but this time to create a colourful new capsule collection available to buy from net-a-porter.com today.
His new range of dresses have been created not in his usual hues of classic navy blue or chic black but in a gorgeous kaleidoscope of colour. 'The colours are really fresh, it's a fresh attitude!' Mouret said of the collection.
From sunshine yellow to zingy orange and hot pink via powder blue and regal purple, this collection is fun, playful and the hemlines are surprisingly high for a designer who usually does demure knee-length.
Each dress has been named 'rainbow' in a different language. And they may just be our ultimate party frocks…. "The beauty of these colours is that you don't need to wear too much jewellery," the designer said, adding "The pieces are perfect for parties but also for the cruise season – wear them on vacation in the Caribbean.." And you'll undoubtedly be the most stylish holiday maker around…
Prices start at £850. Shop the collection now at net-a-porter.com
