Style.com lets you know what's what:
"Roland Mouret found a few key ways of moving on this season. His antennae picked up the need to add something looser and more naturalistic to his line, and as a Frenchman, that oriented him toward a North African vibe. His father served in the French army in Africa, and brought home souvenirs that were part of the household when the young Roland was growing up, and thoughts of djellabas and Zouaves and jewelry from the souk occurred to him for Spring.
Mouret's focus on the utility aspects of modern dressing also led him to work out a design for a top—a square of fabric suspended on tapes that can double up as a skirt. That might prove a trickier sell, like some of the draped and folded pannier-shaped ideas he worked into the show. Yet Mouret's general direction—the broadening of his palette to include teal, mustard, and black-and-white jersey stripes, and the new sense of texture and richness in this collection—looked appealing. "
Lorenzo likes this one quite a bit more than Tom does. It's not quite as rigidly structured and form-fitting as previous Mouret collections. It still has that structured origami feel to it, but decidedly more askew than what we've seen from him in the past. We really love the muted colors and stripes. Lorenzo loves the fuzzy shoulders but Tom can't commit. Here's why Tom can't get completely on board with this one: while it's definitely full of interesting shapes, a lot of those shapes aren't particularly flattering. Still, it's got a chic, structured, yet easy feel to it. If nothing else, these are clothes that demand that you stop and look at them. Love those necklaces too.
