《MUGLER @ SS2012 Men's Collection》

MUGLER SS2012 Men's Collection, Mugler’s Creative Director Nicola Formichetti collaborates with the head menswear designer, Romain Kremer, to advance the ideas of male heroes and sexual types through cut, fabric, colour and silhouette, to stylised, almost Manga-like proportions. Stretch athletic fabrics and garments predominate – ranging from swimwear to a spin on motor cross gear – evoking the feel of a second skin. Even the old-fashioned preppy has a makeover in a cartoonish, vivid green. This is a colour that predominates throughout the collection and was taken directly from the Thierry Mugler archive – a combination of the electronic and the pastoral, a sort of sci-fi Arcadia.
Stonewashes feature throughout the collection. In grey in the first half of the presentation it denotes the sense of aging, classical structures. In the second half in denim, it denotes a switch to trashy trade. This duality is also present in the motif of the dissected silhouette, where tailoring is frequently held together by a transparent strip that also splits top from bottom.
