Emphasising eros, the Mugler collection for Fall Winter 2020 is a seductive evolution of Casey Cadwallader’s triumphant, body- positive futurism. With a new decadence, he plunges further into glamour. A confident sensuality erupts in a game of reveal and conceal.
Sleek and studied with a sinuous ease, silhouettes embrace curves from the obtuse arch of a raglan sleeve to the acute hourglass forms of techno mesh. The inky palette shimmers with iridescence, swelling through chocolate, indigo and sky blue to lipstick shades of vermillion and fuchsia pink.
Shrugging off the shoulders, storm trenches in lambskin or melton wool and wrapped mannish shirts unveil a shadow play of en- gineered catsuits and bodies worn with bootcut trousers, flared minis and moto pants. Cropped jackets frame the bust, reflecting the scuba basque and corset constructions of Mugler tailoring in fluid crepe, tiger jacquard and polished leather.
The second-skin effect of trompe l’oeil nudity is replicated in stretch rib mock necks and point hem skirts, culminating in sheer sheath dresses glinting with silver cabochons and mirrored embroidery.
Complementing the season’s fearless Mugler attitude, ultra-point boots and pumps feature an inclined stiletto or an inverted wedge heel, as circuit chokers, hoops and cuffs are shot with a constellation of metal pearls.
