Mugler Fall Winter 2011 Collection

Wednesday March 2nd, 2011 – 2 rue Japy, Paris 75011
The revival of the iconic fashion house Thierry Mugler involved nothing short of a fashion uprising. Leading the charge of an army of PVC and Latex vixens were none other than acclaimed stylist, Nicola Formichetti, Sébastien Peigné, fashion designer, and fashion’s pop idol, Lady Gaga. At the Gymnase Japy, one-by-one, a phalanx of hip-swaying models strutted the catwalk in Metropolis shoulder jackets, moiré green trenches, latex high-waist pants and blue neoprene breast-bearing short dresses.
A few looks in, the platinum blond, pig-tailed music director took to the catwalk, sporting a bowtie-bra dress and exhuberating as much bravado as her newest single, Government Hooker, which played alongside the show. Skyscraper heels, Rein Vollenga’s “flesh-n-bone” wrist bangles, and sculpture-wear were befitting Nicola’s future woman, the “post-human android goddess”.
Coco Rocha’s captivating walk made it impossible for other models not to resist playing it up for the cameramen. “Rico”, aka Rick Genest, made an appearance shortly before a very feral Jessica Stam showed off a top-tattered sheer and neoprene long black dress. By the final looks, Atsuko Kudo’s translucent sculptured exo-shells accentuated shoulders, waists, and arms which paired well against the airiness from beige and white pieces.
Known for their avant-gardism, the Formichetti and Mugler marriage only seems natural. With the entire show livestreamed over Facebook, clearly the new creative designer has a clear vision of how to forge the best elements of fashion and technology. And if this latest collection is, as Nicola puts it, “an exploration in the anatomy of change” then we’ve just learned that it is the science of forward thinking design and masterful execution.
