Earlier this month, French-born, London-based designer Roland Mouret announced that he was releasing an eight-piece capsule collection made from Australia Merino wool. After weeks of counting down and an official launch dinner, we’re finally able to get our hands on the collection.
The designer’s had a busy week. He’s been Instagramming his activities, including boating around Sydney Harbour, announcing the Woolmark Prize to Strateas.Carlucci and meeting up with Harper’s Bazaar Australia editor Kellie Hush. Last night was the big one, though, with the international designer launching his colourful range at a dinner held by department store Myer.
As the exclusive stockist of the highly-anticipated collection, Myer helped Mouret celebrate the launch by calling in guests like Marie Claire Australia Editor Jackie Frank and designers Johnny Schembri of By Johnny and Alex Perry. Face of Myer, Jennifer Hawkins, was also in attendance, wearing the collection’s orange and fuchsia Leana dress.
The rainbow-coloured tops, pants and dresses, all in Mouret’s signature draping technique, are now available at Myer Melbourne City and Myer Sydney City. If you live elsewhere, you can snap up the limited-edition pieces through Roland Mouret’s online store.
