Roland Mouret Brings a Rainbow to Net-a-Porter



    Beloved for his exquisitely tailored silhouettes and flattering cocktail pieces, Roland Mouret has now designed a line of flirty minidresses exclusively for Net-a-Porter.

    The dresses are overall a lot more overtly sexy and playful than his regular collection, which tends to fall at the knee and suits stylish celebrities like Rachel Weisz and Demi Moore just perfectly. Apparently the shorter hemlines were Net-a-Porter founder and chairman Natalie Massenet's idea, since, as she told WWD, "we have so many clients wh would love to show their legs." Even Mouret admits that the collection has a more youthful appeal: "It's about L.A., it's about young girls having fun, it's about going out and the power of bright colors."

    The new minis, however, still bear the designer's mark: As Mouret says on Net-a-Porter, "The darts, the folding, all of these kinds of details are part of my signature." Indeed, the dresses are certainly have a variety of interesting shapes and draping, though they'll unfortunately still be Mouret-priced, meaning they'll range from $1,495-$3,070.
