Acclaimed fashion designer Roland Mouret has partnered with The Woolmark Company to develop an eight-piece ready-to-wear Australian Merino wool collection exclusively for Australian retailer Myer.
Fronted by one of Australia’s most respected fashion identities, Nicole Warne of GaryPepperGirl.com, the Roland Mouret Australian Merino wool collection is comprised of Mouret’s signature silhouettes including dresses, tops, TTD, trouser and skirt, utilizing his instinctive draping technique. The collection plays with the notion of color therapy, providing a burst of energy with the use of color blocking in bright blues, fluoro pinks, oranges and greens.
“I have always loved working with Australian Merino wool because it has an amazing quality that allows it to drape and hang beautifully. The capsule collection, for me, was about how to introduce wool to the red carpet and to every day life. It’s about brightness, it’s about color therapy, and it’s about shaping the body. Working with The Woolmark Company and Myer was a very organic process and an incredible pleasure. I am looking forward to visiting Australia for the first time to launch the collection with Myer, as well as to judge the International Woolmark Prize. The lifestyle and creativity emerging from Australia is inspiring and continues to push boundaries, and I am happy to be a part of it in my own way,” said Roland Mouret.
The Roland Mouret Australian Merino wool collection will be available exclusively at Myer Sydney stores from July 17th and globally on the brand’s website at RolandMouret.com.
