Mugler Spring 2013 Menswear28/06/2012
Mugler's Spring 2013 menswear collection took outside-the-box tailoring to new heights and matched it with cool pastel colours and darkened elegance to produce one of the highlight presentations of the season. An aquatic theme was apparently adhered to, with Creative Director Nicola Formichetti making the decision to go offline this season, saying, “under the sea is the only place we can’t have Wi-Fi”. Quite. With the exception of coats and trousers, it seems anything that recalled traditional form was boldy reinterpreted by Formichetti and menswear designer Romain Kremer who took to said pieces with the sharpest of scissors. Shorts and shirting, in particular, were taken up merely as blueprints for what they were to become on the Mugler runway; both laid upon the cutting table to create unique and immaculately tailored contemporary pieces for the modern man. That's not to say that silhouettes weren't classic, but this collection should certainly be looked upon for the attention to cut and detail of each brilliantly invidual piece.
