Banana Republic has teamed up with designer Roland Mouret to launch the Roland Mouret for Banana Republic Collection — a limited-edition collection that uses Banana Republic's signature Sloan contour stretch fabric.
Mouret is best known for his feminine, hourglass fitted dresses.
"Partnering with Banana Republic on this project was such an adventure for me," said Mouret. "The common goal for this collection is to offer incredible fit through an assortment of hourglass silhouettes using Banana Republic's Sloan fabric, extending my love of structure into accessible prices. These pieces are multi-functional for the modern woman to wear and accessorize in her own way, making her always ready for life's journey."
Roland Mouret for Banana Republic launches at locations worldwide and online in early August. Key details of the 30-piece collection include bold colorblocking, graphic perforated details, leopard prints and svelte cuts on everything from blazers and pencil skirts to sheath dresses. Apparel includes petite styles and will range in price from $49.50 (belt) to $165 (dress).
"I'm so inspired by Roland's skill for draping and attention to fit," says Banana Republic VP of women's design Melloney Birkett. "He has such a strong sense of how to dress a woman, and brings a beautiful sensuality to his work. Roland's vision really matched ours as we worked together to use his design expertise as a build to Banana Republic's Sloan fabric to create a truly covetable collection."
