At this point LFW seems unreasonably short compared to the New York and Paris counterparts, so it always good to see when a designer comes here to present his collection. Like Roland Mouret, who has returned with this collection after many years of hiatus.
“I call this place my home. More often than not we all come home sooner or later, I’ve realised that home is not a place at all, it’s the people you share it with,” said the designer and I couldn’t agree more. London is my 4th place which I can call my home. But time and habits are important factors too, I guess, because albeit this is my home right now and I love it, I still feel Budapest the closest to my heart, even though I cannot go home there, as there’s no such a thing now.
Anyway, he came back and celebrated his 20th year in fashion (and possibly supporting London and the UK post Brexit) with a beautifully colourful and sharply tailored collection. As always, his creations are feminine, refined and interesting with the colours like deep – very on trend – purple, warm – cannot wait to find something nice in this shade – cerulean blue and some mellow yellow. We couldn’t expect less though, no matter which city calls he home.
On the other hand, I don’t know what to think about the chokers, as I never was a big fan of them. You?
