Mugler Resort 2016Resort 2016 Resort

Runway Review
6/9/2015 Ed Kavishe/fashionwirepress.com

For Resort 2016, the designer David Koma drives Mugler Paris down the optical information highway, pushing his deft, sensual elegance into graphic overdrive. Marking a year as Creative Director of the house, Koma's designs provoke his most coherent dialogue with the Mugler archive to date, revisiting powerful motifs in new and unexpected ways. Searching for a sense of dynamic freshness, the result is a high-impact transitional wardrobe abounding with draped asymmetry and bold decoration – for contoured and feminine designs with a daring Op Art touch.

Departing from the sharp contrast of panelled black and white, sun-drenched shades of coral, sky blue, pale yellow and almond green define the Resort palette. From wrapped miniskirts in bright leather to floor-length gowns and fluted trousers, the flared and angular silhouette with an accentuated hourglass waist offers a myriad of options from day to night. In this collection Koma elevates the Mugler craftsmanship to new heights, evolving the precise cut and drape of signature bonded crêpe and viscose cady as subtly elaborate gowns and column skirts in pleat-like bands encrusted on illusion tulle.

Grazing the hip or slashed down shoulder, thigh and midriff, bias-cut gowns revealing summery skin are pierced with metal pearl details and the trompe l'oeil of sheer stretch mesh. Elsewhere white pearls hide as linear mesh inserts at the waist or elbow, and cascade down the body entwined in delicate macramé. Stripes abound throughout the collection in black and frosted white sequins, panels of pinstripe crêpe, and spiralling contours of cotton embroidery on structured gabardine shiftdresses - exemplifying the urban glamour of the new Mugler woman.
