RM BY ROULAND MOURET F/W 09

With the success of Victoria Beckham’s line credited to the help of Roland Mouret and an increasing number of celebrities and socialites wearing his form-fitting cocktail dresses, there has been a steady increase in the amount of attention given to Mouret’s covetable frocks.  
 

I was pleasantly surprised that in addition to Mouret’s signature cocktail silhouette there were a number of day looks including slouchy pants, shirt-dresses worn over crocodile-embossed skinny leggings, pencil skirts, zippered coats and jackets with beautiful origami folds, and some knitwear pieces (a first for the RM by Roland Mouret line), that balanced out the cocktail looks and helped push the brand forward in an even more promising direction this season.  
 

Many of the looks the designer showed featured what he called “TTD” which is a way of draping a piece so that it can function as a tunic, top, or dress.  
 

The collection, done mostly in a dark color palette of black, navy, gray and dark green with some pops of fuchsia in between, was a wholly wearable, delightful, and sophisticated array of staple pieces.
