MOURET ON HOLIDAY: Roland Mouret plans to show his resort collection for the first time in London with an event at his Carlos Place flagship and headquarters on May 29. While his mainline collection will continue to be shown in Paris in October and March during fashion week, the designer’s pre-collections will now be presented at 8 Carlos Place in Mayfair.
Mouret is blazing a trail in London, where designers tend to show pre-collections by appointment in their showrooms. Mouret’s resort 2015 collection will go into stores in November. “The pre-collections count for about 70 percent of my business, and so I wanted to celebrate and showcase them properly,” Mouret said. “I have my catwalk shows in Paris, my red-carpet support from Los Angeles and a new store opening in New York. I wanted to complete my fashion world by showing in London — my home and where my brand has its heart,” said Mouret.
The New York store will open this summer at 952 Madison Avenue.
