With equal parts grit and glamour, the fall winter 2022-23 collection revels in the daring, the deconstructed, and the decadent - proposing a revelatory line that embodies feminine strength for our time. grazing erogenous zones from head to toe, lines are drawn — slicing thighs, pelvis, décolleté. satin, leather, and lace are employed as mediums for sculpting and draping, allowing construction and fluid movement to coexist.
Both strange and familiar, their unapologetic individuality and freedom of expression remains the pulsing lifeblood of the Mugler attitude and silhouette. breaking the 4th wall to invite voyeurism and the serendipitous theatre of fashion, backstage preparations and technical infrastructure become vital props in the hyperbole - amplifying the tropes of the fashion show in vignettes that preserve the urgent sense of spectacle intrinsic to Mugler.
Masculine archetypes exist alongside the ultra-feminine: boned biker jackets, spiral denim shorts, parkas and topcoats collide with intricate lingerie, silver fringe, ruched peasant sleeves and corseted denim in ensembles that evolve the phenomenon of the Mugler bodysuit far and beyond its origins.
Contrasting their attenuated forms, exaggerated bow volumes, flared tulle cuffs and draped cascades embody the prowess of a silhouette engineered in 360°. Adorning the body, aggressive chromed and resin jewelry evokes blades, thorns, and twisting spikes, whilst armoured sandals or knife-point pumps and boots extend the season’s sensual geometries with perpetual inertia.
