Mugler Fall/Winter 2015-2016 Collection – Paris Fashion Week
When we think of our future attire, we can certainly see the Mugler fall/winter 2015-2016 collection as the dress code of the year 2250. It is quite bizarre to think that far forward, but somehow we are always obsessed with the futuristic designs, no matter which year or age we live in. It is almost as laughable as watching “The Flintstones” and then “The Jetsons” back to back, one showing off characters who drove a car by running, literally, while the other putting us in jets and giving us robot servants. David Koma certainly went to infinity and beyond today, making even Light Buzzyear proud. The pieces paraded on the Paris Fashion Week runway included circuit boards, high shines, rivets, and microchips, with hardware details in turtlenecks and shimmering galactic geometry decorations. Panel dresses had sexy back straps, while overcoats were accentuated with shiny slivers on the lapels. There were lots of edges and angular pieces, and it is safe to say that you need a supermodel’s body to get away with these; kind of like Karlie Kloss and Georgia May Jagger who were part of Koma’s model line-up.
This was David Koma’s second collection for Mugler to be publicly displayed and we have to say that he really rocked the stage with his creative understanding of what Interstellar life may be like. Plus, now we are almost too excited to see what the future has in store for us and will certainly be fitting ourselves into the tight little mini dresses that took over the runway. The sleek and sexy silhouettes do not always come in a mini version either, sometimes not even as a dress. Instead, we do see pantsuits and midi dresses with thigh high slits appearing everywhere as well, while Koma brings the focus to jigsaw tailoring and the mix of matte and shiny materials to create the circuit board patterns that he loved utilizing in the Mugler fall/winter 2015-2016 collection. He included some leather dresses as well with a wraparound style to them, finished off with leather cables woven through a ring at the shoulder and the waist.
The color schemes used throughout this line-up include the classic black, a tinge of garbage bag green and a rather nice touch of navy blue, before bursting into bright white coloring and golden additions that gave us the impression that nerdy digital goddesses walk among us. From full dresses to skirt and top combinations, these intriguing pieces could not be ignored, particularly when you throw a long white blazer over the ensemble to give it an even more sophisticated outlook. Soon after this it moves back into black and white combinations, both in a pantsuit that we immediately fell in love with and mini dresses with or without thigh slits. The year’s biggest fashion trend is the full-length gown falling to the ankles or cropped just a few inches above, with a side slit up the thigh that refines the word sexy. The Mugler collection certainly captured the sexiest pieces on the runway to date this season and kept us glued to our screens, begging for more.
