Riding high on the success of his RM by Roland Mouret collection of dresses, Roland Mouret will launch a 15-piece menswear line of tailored suits and separates in his Paris showroom this January.
Knowing his happy female followers will be the best brand ambassadors, Mouret will place the collection with stores already selling his womenswear. As he explained to WWD, the lineup is really about dressing himself:
“There is a moment in my life that I didn’t find at all what I really wanted to wear. It may be pretentious, but I wanted to have texture, the right shoulder line, I wanted to find a suit where I don’t feel like a business man inside it.”
But don't expect to see Mouret on the runway for the upcoming menswear collection shows, “I don’t want to do catwalk because as much as I like women on the catwalk, I don’t like men,” Mouret said. “Women walk, men just don’t get it.”
