As I have told you, my heart jumped when i heard that Roland Mouret is coming back.
Roland was my first fashion love, the reason why fashion became such a passion for me. It was the late summer of 2005, I was 15 almost 16 and I was sitting at the backseat of our car while me and my family were driving back home after our annual summer holiday. The radio was probably playing Gwen Stefani’s Hollaback girl, Kelly Clarkson’s Behind these hazel eyes and Martti Vainaa & Sallitut aineet’s Pelimies . But I wasn’t listening, I was reading the magazines I had brought from Turku – Fashion magazines. My first ones. I did already like fashion. But I didn’t love, it was just nice.
Then I saw the picture. There were black evening dress in it, designed by Roland Mouret. It was gorgeous. And this was before his name was everywhere.
Since that picture I have followed the fashion, watched the runway shows, dreamed and sketched.
Now he’s back. With his RM collection he made great comeback. I was a bit worried what his designs would look after there had been ( in fashion world’s time) so big pause. But there was no need for that.
The collection was fresh and you could still see his signature in it. It had lighter colours than average fall collection. He had kept the colours down using only white, black, blue and different shades of grey. Great I think.
He knows how important it is to use good fabrics and his cuttings alone deserve attention.
