F/W 2007 RM by Roland Mouret Navy "Moon" Dress
This dress is still being produced as part of the signature collection by Roland Mouret and currently sells for US$2295 when it is available. This one is part of the original series produced back in 2007. My client was wait listed for the dress and finally was able to snag hers. The dress was seen on countless celebrities including Victoria Beckham (pictured here) who championed Roland. The best description is perhaps the one from the Mouret site itself:
"Aptly named for its sophisticated sci-fi feel, the iconic Moon Dress by Roland Mouret features a high neckline with raised darts, sharp cap sleeves and a diamond-shaped panel at the waist. Outlines the contours of the body with tailored structure and finished with an exposed back zip and a short slit."
Unlined with ribbon finished edges and made of a stretch cotton/elastane mix (the more current versions are made of wool). Closes with a back zipper. The label at the neck is no longer present but the correct care tag is present. Perhaps a touch of pressing to the seams consistent with wear and cleaning. Priced accordingly
