Swirling with otherworldly promise, the Autumn Winter 2019 collection by Casey Cadwallader for MUGLER vibrates with a savage alchemy
– implanting magnificent architectures with a primal and aerodynamic elegance. In a call-and-repeat of decadent pattern and incisive structure, the silhouette pulses with complex densities and controlled volume.
In acid and earth tones, mercurial graphic studies read animal, vegetal, and mineral.
Autumn Winter 2019
Warping through a marbled stratum of natural stimuli, mixed media textiles soften the innate sharpness of turbo-charged tailoring in a macro-dose of tapestry, amoebic florals, and stained-glass leather. From chaotic patchwork to blurred print, silk georgettes and cloque wool jacquards create ruched incrustations in curving ‘trap’ dresses, as panelled columns cascade with fringed volants.
Peplum coats and zipped dolman blousons evolve hourglass shapes and bonded finishes, their flare echoed by smocked taffeta and compression corsetry built into flounced jersey dresses.Worn over snap-stud cargos and bootcut trousers, second-skin separates are embroidered in splashes of Mako beading or embossed with contoured stripes. The season’s organic energy is reflected in caged resin jewellery and the sleek construction of spoked spiral pumps or patent wedge cuissards.
On the occasion of my second-ever MUGLER show, I’d like to take the opportunity to congratulate Manfred Thierry Mugler on the opening of the retrospective exhibition this week at Musée des Beaux Arts in Montreal. Celebrating the past and present of MUGLER as a duality of nostalgia and progress is truly important to me, and this exhibition pays to testament to MUGLER as a beacon of culture, diversity, and innovation.Casey Cadwallader, Creative Director of MUGLER
