Roland Mouret took inspiration from the Mount Street Gardens near his Mayfair store, scattering floral colors and nature motifs across his elegant, architectural collection.

 

There was a whiff of old world elegance — think Jacqueline Kennedy in the Camelot years — in the lineup of neat day dresses, some with bare arms, others bearing the designer’s signature cap sleeves.

 

There was a black-and-white A-line dress done in a spongy, technical knit with a lovely fold around the neckline; a longer mint green, fil coupe dress bearing a pattern of geometric shapes, and one adorned with digital-print butterflies that were placed here and there on the light gray hammered silk fabric.

 

Mouret added sparkle to the collection with metallic threads running through a boucle fabric that was made into a wide-leg trouser suit, and with lame for skirts and a disco-ready, off-the-shoulder playsuit.

 

Embellishment included a variety of laces, which Mouret patch-worked onto the front of a curve-hugging skirt; draped around the shoulders of a long and liquid pink gown, and swirled across the front of a dress — all in various shades of pink.
