PLATOON OF THE FUTURE
Paris: Beginning with a group of sterile, cleanly cut coats and suiting, Nicola Formichetti’s latest for Mugler quickly transitioned into more dramatic fare; voluminous patterned capes, shiny layered brocade suiting, cropped leather trenches, cracked patent leather vests. Despite the theatrics, the collection was almost restrained for such an avant-garde label and came through with wearable burgundy track pants, molded bomber jackets, and neat collarless shirting, a uniform resulting from Formichetti’s research into military garb. The silhouettes were tailored for a trim platoon, but modern detailing stood in for military embellishment, the designer choosing slim tuxedo lapels, patent leather trim and tonal zippers in place of epaulets and medals.—Nina Stotler
