The extremely fashion-forward, limited-edition collection is beautiful and will leave fashionistas begging for more. The collection, which becomes available this month, combines Mouret’s keen sense of of fit and felinity with Banana Republic’s signature Sloan fabric. Featuring form fitting skirts, dresses and shirts, this collection is excellent for chic style makers looking to add some fashionable essentials to their wardrobe. 

So, what was the inspiration behind this bound to be iconic new collection? Banana Republic’s Melloney Birkett says that “we were drawn to and inspired by Roland’s skill for draping and attention to fit. He has such a strong sense of how to dress a woman, and brings such a beautiful sensuality to his work.” There is no denying that one of the main reasons why this collection looks so incredible is due to the fact that Banana Republic and Roland Mouret have similar design aesthetics, “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.” finished Birkett. It is quite clear this collection is amazing and features piece that are truly must-haves!

The design process was natural from start to finish said Roland Mouret. “I met with the Banana Republic team and we literally draped the Sloan fabric on a fit model to give her the most flattering look possible. I worked to connect myself with Banana Republic’s Sloan fabric, and was amazed at how seamlessly the fabric worked as I draped each piece.” The main goal of this collection was attention to detail: every piece has to fit perfectly and make the women wearing the piece feel sensational. Additionally, this collection can be worn anywhere says Mouret, “these pieces are multi-functional for the modern woman to wear and accessorize in her own way, making her always ready for any occasion.”

In terms of styling the pieces in the collection both Melloney and Roland have their fair share of tips! Melloney suggests layering: “with the weather being so unpredictable as of late, the best pre-fall tip is to layer. By layering a leather jacket over a sleeveless dress from the collection, you can easily transition with a seasonless, versatile wardrobe that works hard for you everyday.” Roland Mouret recomends remembering the versatility of the collection “I see these pieces on an elegant woman who wants to look and feel incredible for every occasion. The collection is versatile, with some pieces perfect for a day at the office worn with a blazer, and easily updated with different shoes or accessories for a night out.” All these tips will have you looking insanely stylish when you wear the pieces in this collection this Fall!
