Runway Rework: Roland Mouret Fall 2012

I love Roland Mouret most of the time, and the Fall 2012 collection contains a lot of hits for me. Although he is known for his sleek and structured sheath dresses, I thought I’d feature his separates for the runway rework this week.

We’re going to ignore that the vest is probably real fur and go for a smaller faux fur accent piece to keep this look real. The trick to wearing this season’s wide leg trousers is to make sure they’re in a lightweight fabric that has some flow and give. That’s going to be the difference between  wide leg and bell bottom. The sweater has some simple graphic interest, which is a good contrast to the softer furry bits over it. Hit it, pieces under $100!
