Getting your hands on one of Roland Mouret's runway gowns is no easy feat (his pieces run between $2,000 and $,5,000, on average), but the fashion designer's latest collaboration will make it possible for fans to get their hands on his flattering frocks at an affordable price.

Mouret announced Monday that he has partnered with Banana Republic for a limited-edition capsule collection, which will run between $49.50 and $165. The range, which will include nearly 30 pieces of women's apparel and accessories, will hit Banana Republic stores worldwide and online in early August.

The new line will showcase Mouret's design emphasis on the female form through the Banana Republic Sloan fabric, which is a stretchy material that creates "a 'magic' fit that shapes through figure-flattering silhouettes," according to a release.

"Partnering with Banana Republic on this project was such an adventure for me," said Mouret in a statement. "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. These pieces are multifunctional for the modern woman to wear and accessorize in her own way, making her always ready for life's journey."

With Mouret's designs from his namesake label already a hit among Hollywood's leading ladies, including Amy Adams and Sandra Bullock, it's likely his collection for the retailer will be a winner with the mass market, too.
