Iconic Fall 2005 Roland Mouret Heavily Documented Black Stretch Wool Mix Galaxy Dress
This dress is still being produced as part of the current collections by Roland Mouret and currently sells for approx US$2700. This one is part of the original series first produced back in 2005. My client was wait listed for the dress and finally was able to snag hers back in the day. The dress has been seen on countless celebrities and we have included many of them here. In 2005 it became one of fashion’s most revolutionary and sought after pieces. The best description is perhaps the one from the Mouret site itself: "The iconic Roland Mouret Galaxy dress creates the ultimate silhouette for the female figure, combining precision cutting, exceptional fabrics and exquisite detail to achieve the look. This classic piece lends an effortlessly stylish appeal to your daytime or evening wardrobe."
The secret to the body shaping magic that the dress has lies in the interior stretch nylon lining. This acts like a body shaper and creates a smooth curved silhouette for the exterior of the dress to lie over. The bodice has those signature high capped sleeves and the neckline is cut is a squared off cut out that is very flattering. It is fitted over the bust with the stretch nylon netting built in for support. The waist nips in and I have added a grosgrain ribbon that is not original to the dress but will be included. The skirt hugs the hips and then falls in a long pencil silhouette. At the back there is a vent that you can choose to button completely closed for a very pulled in feel at the hem or leave unbuttoned for a more straight pencil feel. These are sexy as hell once on the body and this one is like new. Excellent condition
