Creative director, Nicola Formichetti and head of women’s design, Sébastien Peigné, have resurrected Thierry Mugler’s 1997 rendition, Insects. Opening the show with a trio of moth-like white coats with laser cut fringe and cocoon shaped peplums, followed by an army of red, black and more white slender bodysuits with narrow waistlines. Models stormed in wearing shear black dresses with python and crocodile appliqués, not to mention, Formichetti’s structured shoulder reined supreme. The idea of the Japanese warrior lends to the design team’s inspiration, including Ryuichi Sakamoto’s ‘maximal minimalism‘ soundtrack provided for the show. “It was about Asia and insects – the Insect show was my favorite Mugler collection in 1997” explained Formichetti. He goes on to say, “She’s not really sexual; she’s sharper, but at the same time very refined. That was our girl this season.” And a phenomenal girl she is. This is definitely a collection for Mugler’s strong and courageous women!
