Roland Mouret to launch menswear
Roland Mouret is to design a menswear collection that will launch in January.
The luxury womenswear designer will introduce a 15-piece collection of men’s tailored clothing and separates, according to reports.
Mouret told WWD that he also expects to begin opening his own stores within three years.
He will initially sell the menswear collection into 10 to 15 of his womenswear accounts and slowly grow the menswear side of the business.
Mouret will show the menswear collection in his Paris showroom in January but does not intend to show menswear on the catwalk.
He said prices will be set somewhere between $1,600 (£978) and $3,800 (£2,322) for a suit.
Mouret added: “A lot of my customers have said, ‘When are you going to do something for men?’. It’s subtle dressing. It’s something that is quite close to my heart.”
Roland Mouret’s general manager Michelle Mahlke said the label’s womenswear sales are expected to reach the £5m mark this year but made no predictions for the menswear business.
