Roland Mouret's latest collection revisited the '80s in more ways that one, but let's start from the beginning. His first look — a strong-shouldered red blazer with a matching split-front pencil skirt — set the tone for sharp lines, saturated hues, and geometric shapes. From there, Mouret sent out equally striking silhouettes, some with asymmetrical necklines, some with ultradraped hems, but all cut close to the body in his signature formfitting style. He experimented with both textural dimension and fabric dye, with the latter resulting in mud-dyed silks appearing magically leather-like. While we're sure we'll see established fans of the label (think Beyoncé or Carey Mulligan) wearing his sexier minidresses and intricately twisted sheaths, we're dying to see who dares to take on that slick maroon top and green tapered pant combo.
