“PFW Fall 2020: Mugler”
Mugler presented a collection focus once again on the sensuality of a human body, its shapes and curves. There is nothing to hide nor to imagine in this collection that follows the natural lines of the body and accentuates hips and shoulders, once again taking freely from the imaginary of the 80s. The latest Spring Summer collection had already set the stage for a dissertation on sensuality, showing lots of skin, much of legs and decidedly risky cuts. The autumn version moves in the same direction, and is explosive.
There is a lot of leather (the second black coat is divine), there are bare shoulders and designed necklines. There is also a belt that becomes suspenders. Instead of super tight trousers, however, pants are more relaxed, low-waist and slightly baggy. A bold sensuality would be said. The dresses, always long and wrapping, have transparent inserts that seem to draw embroidery on the models’ skin. Mugler has already shown sensitivity to the topic of inclusion and this time as well, women of all sizes were on the runway. And it is amazing – but perhaps not so much – to see how sensuality is universal. The good thing of Mugler is that it does not insist too much on it: every woman has the opportunity to feel beautiful and lethal in Mugler’s creations, and there is nothing strange or sensational in this. It simply is, just as it should.
