Seductive and sharp tailoring at Mugler by Koma

New York: Creative Director David Koma presented his third collection for Mugler applying a laser-sharp focus to his tailored silhouettes for Pre-Fall 2015. Not withstanding true to the house codes, and Koma’s vision for the brand based on sharp detailing, sleek hardware details and seductive cutouts, continued with the body contouring shapes that make this brand such a favourite at red carpet time. A rich palette of burgundy, deep lapis and forest green, punctuated with vibrant lime complemented the sleek shapes that were carefully punctuated with polished grommets and intricate splicing – revealing just enough flesh to be tantalizing and provocative. Hook and eye details trimmed luxe cashmere greatcoats while Macro-check 3D sequins encrusted in mesh added further graphic abstraction to the collection. The highlight of the presentation was the glamourous evening gowns lavished with eyelet and whipcord detailing and cut in floor-length paneled jersey. Even the softest nappa leather was cut into covetable pieces – a sleeveless jumpsuit, a cutaway funnel neck or a slashed chemise, take your pick, there were some delicious pieces to choose from.  – Lizzy Bowring
