Mouret has produced a capsule collection of S/S 12 dresses available exclusively through his website. The three black silk jersey dresses with white leather floral appliqués already have a fan in Mulligan.
The Bafta-nominated actress wore a red version of Mourets midi-length Carstone dress to the Film Critics Circle Awards in London on Thursday evening. Mulligan also wore the dress earlier this month, to promote her new film, Shame, in Los Angeles.
Mouret sees the trio of dresses as a sartorial dose of sunshine for January shoppers.
