In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Galaxy Dress, on Monday 11th July 2016, Roland Mouret unveils the complete limited edition capsule collection of the iconic design in seven colours. The French fashion house will see its second blogger collaboration for the launch of ‘Ten Years of the Galaxy Dress’ with international fashion blogger and style influencer, Denni Elias of Chicmuse.
Known to many as simply ‘that dress’, in 2005 the Galaxy Dress became one of fashion’s most revolutionary and sought after pieces. A dress that has made fashion history, it has been and continues to be worn and adorned by celebrities the world over. Drawn by its sculptured forms, the name resembles a true galaxy of stars; Cameron Diaz, Scarlett Johansson and Rachel Weisz, to name a few.
Founder of fashion blog ‘Chicmuse’ and social media specialist within the fashion industry, Denni Elias has built her reputation as an international stylist who travels the world, drawing inspiration for her work and personal style. For the Galaxy 10 launch collaboration, Elias has selected her favourite pieces from the collection and styled them in her characteristic, unique and chic way. She captures the true essence and the vibrant hues of the contemporary capsule collection resulting in a spectacular shoot, at newly opened boutique hotel Casa Fayette, Guadalajara, Mexico.
Located in Guadalajara, Mexico and built by Grupo Habita (part of Design Hotels worldwide), Casa Fayette’s interiors were created by Dimore Studio, an interior design team admired by the Chicmuse founder.
“I got to know Roland Mouret back when I started Chicmuse. The essence of the brand gives a sense of simplicity that helps anything look spectacular. Our team chose to shoot this editorial in Casa Fayette, as it seemed that it organically fitted the brand. The draping and adjustments of the Galaxy Collection, with its colour blocking, symmetry, and unexpected twists, felt intuitively right to shoot with the background and design at the new boutique hotel. For us, it also represents that both brand and hotel are boutique experiences: exclusive, and absolutely enjoyable for the eyes.” – Denni Elias (Chicmuse)
Ten years later, Roland Mouret celebrates the Galaxy Dress’ timeless versatility, which continually adapts itself to reflect a woman’s personal, inimitable style. The capsule collection will feature the galaxy dress in seven different colours but will also see the addition of new, modern silhouettes in the form of a top, skirt, jacket and jumpsuit.
“The silhouette of the Galaxy is timeless, and to celebrate its 10th anniversary, I wanted to create pieces with the same effortlessness as the dress. The top, skirt, jacket and jumpsuit sit perfectly alongside the dress, and draw in a new audience to the brand.” – Roland Mouret
The collection with be available exclusively from Monday 11th July 2016 at the flagship stores in London and New York, and online at www.rolandmouret.com
