From a conversation last night: Yet another designer is breaking into a new category soon, but this time, it's significant - Roland Mouret is designing a line of menswear! As in, right now. No word on exactly when the line debuts, but it's definitely in the works, and we're guessing it's for next men's Fashion Week. This news comes just a month after Balenciaga showed men's looks on the runway for the first time in a while. But back to Mouret - does this mean the Beckhams can get matching designer outfits? Because they totally would.
Roland Mouret's Stripey Spring
To build his spring collection, Roland Mouret thought a lot about Daniel Buren's transformation of the Palais Royale in 1986. The artist's abstract installation, Les Deux Plateaux, which is a cement grid marked by columns painted with black and white stripes, was quite controversial at the time. "It was about deconstruction, contradiction, a clash of colors," Mouret said before the show this morning. "I never want to be too safe."
