Beloved by A-Listers and royalty alike, Roland Mouret shot to stardom (literally) with his hit item the galaxy dress.

Back in 2005 anyone who was anyone was wearing the figure flattering number which was an overt celebration of women's curves and flattered the wearer in all the right places. Carefully placed darts, just the right amount of cleavage and of course a zip that ran all the way down the wearers back… the dress was a triumph of tailoring. "For weeks you [couldn't] open a newspaper or magazine without seeing another young Hollywood A-lister wearing it," wrote Vogue magazine.

Who started Roland Mouret?

The label was founded in 2005 to critical acclaim by British-based French fashion designer Roland Mouret. After a post-Covid slump in sales, it lead to worries the brand wouldn’t survive the pandemic. Luckily the brand was rescued in 2021 when Roland Mouret was acquired by self-portrait founder Han Chong. Chong kept the eponymous designer on as Founder and Creative Chair and explained, “Roland Mouret will benefit from the infrastructure and resources necessary to ensure it can flourish in the coming years. The Roland Mouret brand already has a powerful and respected legacy and I’m excited to see how we can develop it for luxury customers around the world. I am also delighted that Roland himself will be a part of this next chapter.”

It looks like Roland Mouret are amping up their offering for 2022, their website boasts a cryptic message with just a landing page and the words “The legacy continues. Fall 2022.” So we are looking forward to the next chapter of the brand.

What has Roland Mouret been up to lately?

Roland Mouret has shot to stardom yet again with an appearance on The Duchess of Cambridge at the London premiere of Top Gun: Maverick. If you loved the Duchess of Cambridge’s Roland Mouret Lamble Off-The-Shoulder Gown that she wore you’re in luck.
