High-low fashion collaboration fiends, start your engines—the Roland Mouret for Banana Republic Collection has been unveiled, and we have the lookbook, plus behind-the-scenes photos.
The limited edition capsule collection is work wear with sex appeal, meaning that office appropriate sheath dress will transition seamlessly to dinner à deux (and beyond). The foundation of the collection, BR’s signature Sloan fabric caught Mouret’s eye for its “magic” fit and slimming abilities, which the designer (famous for his understanding of the female form and exceptional fit) hand-draped, cut, and pinned on the body to create figure-flattering, wearable styles. Nearly 30 pieces (from $49.50 to $165.00) feature bold colorblocking, graphic perforated details, leopard prints, playful proportions and, of course, Mouret’s characteristic svelte cuts on everything from blazers and slimming pencil skirts to sheath dresses.
“The common goal for this collection is to offer incredible fit through an assortment of hourglass silhouettes using Banana Republic’s Sloan fabric, extending my love of structure into accessible prices. These pieces are multi-functional for the modern woman to wear and accessorize in her own way, making her always ready for life’s journey,” explains Mouret.
The collection will be available for purchase exclusively at select Banana Republic retail locations worldwide—including all San Francisco stores—and online beginning August 7.
