Since didapuk become creative director at Mugler last year, Nicola Formichetti seems to show a new side of the fashion house Thierry Mugler. Together with Sebastian Peigne – head designer for his line of Mugler – he kept trying to insert modern elements into the ‘soul’ from the Paris fashion house.
“We see a lot of Thierry Mugler archives. There are many styles and old fashion products remain attractive, but I think now it’s time to move forward, we could say this collection as ‘Simplified Mugler’,” Sebastian said during a press conference at the ION Art Gallery, Orchard Road, Singapore, Wednesday (05/16/2012).
So do not be surprised if the latest series of Mugler’s fashion collection takes inspiration from Thierry Mugler in 1997, titled ‘Insect’. Attract such high detail shoulders, peplum accent on Pinggu, arm ‘hairy’ and cut-out style of insects seemed to dominate.
The fashion show begins with a series of all-white colored clothing biomaterial cashmere and fox fur is a luxury. After that, look also one or two dress with festive colors like yellow and coral. But the rest ninja-style black dress with fringe accents and translucent materials.
Some of the canal also comes with python and crocodile skin application. Overall, this Modern Mugler collection looks so diverse, ranging from the canal layered ‘Gaga-ish’ to cut boxy coat that can be worn everyday.
Mugler fashion show held in a tent at Orchard Road, Singapore was meant as a sign that has been the official opening of the Audi Fashion Festival, one of Asia Fashion Exchange programs in Singapore. After Mugler, plan big designers such as Zac Posen, and Timo Weiland Mauret Rolan also show off their collections.
