Just two weeks left until the release of economic collection designed by Roland Mouret for Banana Republic and like everything indicates, the fashion items of the collection are expected to disappear immediately! Today was released the ad campaign for the collection, starring Karolina Kurkova which we see wearing a characteristic, body con dress with signature of the designer. All the pieces of the capsule collection is made from innovative fabric Sloan, that use Banana Republic, which hugs the curves, giving, at fashionista who wears it, perfect fit.
The designer from France chose Kurkova to star in the campaign because as he said, Kurkova is an example for the women of our time, she is a mother, a model and a successful entrepreneur.
Mouret, who is best known for his iconic ‘Galaxy’ dress, which debuted in 2006, entered into the partnership following Banana Republic’s previous successful collaborations with Issa and L’Wren Scott.
“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,” he says of the collection.
Mulberry this February will be absent from the London fashion week, as the company remains without artistic director, following the departure of designer, Emma Hill, last June, which was in that position for six years. The brand has told WWD that since the search continues for Hill’s replacement, it “will therefore exceptionally not stage a catwalk show this February.” This was tempered with the news that Mulberry will “definitely be participating in London Fashion Week and details of this will be released in the near future.”
The collection from Mulberry, especially the bags will be presented in the context of exhibitions, as part of London Fashion Week, although generally, the absence will be more than noticeable.
Among the finalists for the position are the Erdem Moralioglu, Roland Mouret, Mary Katrantzou and Sophie Hulme.
