The Big Freeze In Roland Mouret’s Show

Watch the Roland Mouret Fall/Winter 2012-2013 show here:

Having in mind 1947’s Big Freeze that affected the entire Europe, Roland Mouret imagined for the brand’s Fall/Winter 2012-2013 show, a collection meant to capture, as he stated, „the sense of contradiction between the elegance of Haute Couture and people’s desire to keep warm”.

Playing with the classic silhouette made famous by Christian Dior in 1947, Mouret created peplum jackets with more form-fitting shapes and A-line skirts that weren’t as ample as in the past.

The designer’s key-piece – the dress, was of course present in the show, this time reinvented, with added cuts and origami pleats. Also, the asymmetric super-slim ultra-sexy dresses that came out towards the end of the show are surely going to appeal to fashionistas everywhere.

To sustain the idea of fashionable comfort during the winter season, Mouret played with layering, creating outfits like overcoats with necklines and even sleeves made of fur, bringing to attention the fact that winter, in spite of its low temperatures, can be a stylish season.
