Thierry Mugler Fall/Winter 2015-2016 Full Fashion Show Exclusive

DAVID KOMA’S debut last season for Mugler did exactly what it should – which perhaps made the second collection even more of a challenge. When you’ve already ticked your boxes, where to next? Should there even be a somewhere next?

Today, Koma went to infinity and beyond – a fashion vortex configuration spiralling down the catwalk to pave the way for a collection that took circuitboards, high shine, rivets, microchips and futurism as its cues. It was an Interstellar interpretation of a wardrobe – hardware details on turtlenecks, slit overcoats with slithers of shine on lapels, shimmering galactic geometry decoration, panel dresses with sexy back straps, others with those rivets punctuating their way down the front. It felt, then, like there was more of “him” in this.

More angular than the sculpted and svelte outing of spring/summer, cutaways were sharp over scythe, a segmentation of forms key throughout, which is perhaps not entirely what we expect from Mugler. Though the dresses were still sexy, still tight and will be a go-to for party dressing types and those that have the bodies to carry them off – check Karlie Kloss and Georgia Jagger among Koma’s model line-up.
