On the 25th of September in Paris, Mugler presented a sleek collection of loose-cut, louche tailoring, well-defined blazers, and nightwear-inspired corsets and bike shorts in a florid palette for SS20.
Casey Cadwallader has expressed his ideas of bringing his own signature work categorically into the core of the maison. From durable leather bike shorts, to broad jackets made from techno fabrics emphasised with exaggerated shoulders giving enormous volumes to sleeves – Cadwallader is bringing Mugler to the audience. It’s the nerve-touching provocativeness of old Mugler in the modern days.
Since taking the lead at Mugler back in 2017, Casey Cadwallader has been the instant remedy maison needs to galvanise its image with new ideas. With a reputation for railing against borderlines in fashion structure via an engineered lens, Mugler carries on showing an uncommonly high quality of design and clean silhouettes, however, with the capacity to work with nowaday’s fashion. With the SS20 collection start at Paris Fashion Week, Cadwallader repeats the achievements of the house’s history whilst breaking a new road.
The front row contingent was just as diverse, from Paloma Elsesser to rapper Tyga.
