Roland Mouret: Provoke, Attract, Seduce

A highly personal journey through the creative universe of the fashion designer who brought us the galaxy dress—the defining look of the noughties.

Called the King of Curves, Roland Mouret marks his twentieth year in fashion with this definitive monograph featuring an in-depth look at his innovative designs, inspirations, and industry collaborations. This book is conceived as a series of conversations—between Alexander Fury and Mouret, and visually,between Mouret’s clothing and the women who wear it. Led by specially commissioned photography shot especially for this volume, each chapter unfolds in thematic narratives that lure readers deeper and deeper into Mouret’s world: sensuality, glamour, uniform, transformation, identity, and reinvention are just some of the themes explored. A detailed index of each garment appearing in the book completes this much-anticipated volume from the so-called master of the dress.

"The French designer in conversation with fashion writer and historian Fury. This ode to Mouret and his company is more valuable for its Q-and-A text than the photos of various models and collections. It’s all very French: “You know, I’ve learnt everything about fashion in bed,” Mouret says. 'Every body I’ve touched has taught me something about dressing it.'" ~Associated Press
