Dear Shaded Viewers,
With Nicola Formichetti and Romain Kremer in top form, Mugler menswear delivered a punchy and directional show. Anatomical, sexual and confrontational, the silhouette emphasized body parts, muscles and skin. I loved the stonewashed denim pieces, which had an 80s edge.
Tailoring was also a central theme, nicely styled with tribal-like, futuristic jewellery. The shoes were instantly desirable, too, with rather witty fluorescent trims.
