Roland Mouret Spring/Summer 2020
21/10/2019 - Margaux Warin
Last September, Roland Mouret unveiled his latest Ready-to-wear collection. Leaf patterns, casual tailoring, neutral tones and flowing dresses constitute the DNA of this collection. Nicknamed the king of curves, the French designer rends to sublimate women and femininity.
This show was also the opportunity for Roland Mouret to evoke sustainability - a topic dear to the creator. He launched a sustainable 'factory-to-retail' hanger through the #SwithToBlue campaign in collaboration with Arch & Hook and with the support of the Bristish Fashion Council. It's the first 100% recycled and fully circular hanger made from ocean plastics. 
Roland Mouret is leading the way to raise awareness about the #SwitchToBlue hanger campaign and educate people about fashion waste issues.
