Pre-Fall 2013: Mugler
(NEW YORK) Skirt suits, floral, capes: Nicola Formichetti's Pre-Fall collection for Mugler applied a sculptural, more futuristic take to some of couture's recurrent themes. Take the black skirt suit made from leather, coated in a shiny patent, lined with blue fur peeping at the collar and cuffs, cut à la Judy Jetson. Another riff on this theme included a space age-y black patent skirt paired with a baby blue furry sweater over a stark white collared shirt. (A shockingly stylish take on Gwen Stefani's 1998 MTV VMA's look, anyone? If only Gwen had known Nicola then!) Buds found their way onto pieces like a structured white dress with tightly-aligned, soft blue rosettes in the breastplate pattern, or on a canary yellow mini-skirt. The cape theme took shape in the form of a pullover wool shirt; winged shoulders were everywhere, from a fuchsia silk top to silver-grey trapezoidal cocktail dress. Wearable yet unabashedly statement-making; so much Mugler to love!
