He is the artistic director on everyone's lips. After one of his creations was worn by Lily Collins in "Emily in Paris" , the TV series that left its mark on the screaming looks of its protagonists, Stéphane Rolland has become the most talked about couturier of 2020 .
Stéphane Rolland clothes and accessories are a constant of the Netflix TV series : not only does Emily show off her sculptural white dress, but even all the garments we see in Pierre Cadault's atelier are nothing more than pieces from her past collections.
But exactly, who is Stéphane Rolland? Where does it come from ? And why the name sounds so familiar there?
Rolland was only twenty years old when he was hired by Balenciaga who in just 9 months transformed him into the youngest artistic director of the Ville Lumiere, entrusting him with control of the men's line. And this is just the beginning. Desiring greater independence, Stèphane left Balenciaga in 1991 and signed a contract with the Maison Balmain . But Rolland is not going to stop. In 1997 he became the artistic director of Jean-Louis Scherrer where he remained until 2007 , when he decided to open his own brand .
Over the years she has been dressing characters such as Rita Ora, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga and Céline Dion, just to name a few. Iconic has become the dress he designed just for Mrs. Dion on the occasion of the celebration of the twentieth anniversary of "Titanic" . Also signed Rolland are two of the dresses worn by Valérie Lemercier in the film "Aline" , inspired by the life of Céline Dion herself.
Rolland is now preparing to launch its first prêt-à-porter collection which will be available starting from January 2021 . Casual elegance is the undisputed star of the "cocooning" line , which is inspired by the silk pajamas of the 1930s . Silky silhouettes , suitable for day and evening , include asymmetrical dresses , palazzo pants, caftans and tops . The trademark is the purity of the lines combined with the graphic movement.
