Banana Republic Plans Roland Mouret Line

Banana Republic is planning a limited edition capsule collection from fashion designer Roland Mouret.

The Roland Mouret for Banana Republic collection will feature Banana Republic's signature Sloan fabric, a figure-flattering fabric created from a blend of materials.

"I'm so inspired by Roland's skill for draping and attention to fit," says Melloney Birkett, vice president of women's design, Banana Republic. "He has such a strong sense of how to dress a woman, and brings a beautiful sensuality to his work. Roland's vision really matched ours as we worked together to use his design expertise as a build to Banana Republic's Sloan fabric to create a truly covetable collection."

The 30-piece line will include dresses, skirts and blazers, and will debut at stores and online worldwide in August.

"Partnering with Banana Republic on this project was such an adventure for me," says Mouret, founder and designer of his namesake label. "The common goal for this collection is to offer incredible fit through an assortment of hourglass silhouettes using Banana Republic's Sloan fabric, extending my love of structure into accessible prices."
