#PFW: MUGLER SPRING/SUMMER 2013
Once again, Mugler has given us everything we could’ve asked for. Creative Director Nicola Formichetti took it back to the La Thierry archives - referencing past design motifs while incorporating a cool modern twist.
As always, Mugler serves us sleek cuts, pops of color, and the subtle use of unique fabrics (our favorite standout piece is the multicolored latex-esque thermal looking garment). Lady Gaga was in charge of the show’s music and also has a bag from the collection made in honor of her “great ass”. Love! A+!
