Mugler

SCI-FI PARODY
Paris: Nothing short of retro-experimentalism is expected at Mugler and for F/W 13 the inspiration was suitably vintage sci-fi. Outfitted in uniforms which could have come straight from the set of kitschy movies like Mars Attacks!, Mugler’s soldiers were seriously protected by full length monochrome jumpsuits, strapped on Kevlar vests and military cargo shirts. But this was something of a parody, and the fun factor arrived via cartoon-worthy cobalt blues and pinks, satin tuxedos and brocade trousers paired with Tron-esque symbols. When approached with caution, creative director Nicola Formichetti’s whimsical throwbacks, such as colorblocked 80s outerwear, were a quirky success. —Nina Stotler
