For several seasons, French born Roland Mouret, who's traditionally shown in London, has come to New York for Fashion Week and how lucky for us that he has. In a week filled with volume, ornamentation, ethnic touches, eclectic mixes, or clothes that sometimes appear to be too classic, Mouret always stands out with his very grown up, beautifully constructed, sophisticated pieces which are devoid of any extraneous details. Almost everything molds the body hugging every curve- yet the effect remains exceedingly elegant and chic nonetheless. What could be more 'French' in attitude than celebrating the female form, and that is precisely what Mouret does season after season. Simply put- his collections resemble nobody else's thanks to articulated seams, and a true love for design and innovation.

The neutral color for fall is what one would expect to find for the season- concentrating on browns, tans, black, plus yellow and a medium shade of dark blue; Mouret also mixed in subtle menswear inspired tattersalls and windowpane checks. Skirts, which are lean, elongating and narrow- but often with interesting movement- hit the knee (or above), jackets are cut small and narrow (one featured a peplum in back), and several coats in leather looked especially smart. One tan coat, which had the appeal of a classic trench- was anything but- as the front was cut to resemble a cropped bolero. Everything was shown with an extremely skinny, high- heeled pump
