We are about this collaboration between the house of Mugler and H&M. The house of Mugler has always been a trailblazer, a rule-breaker, a champion of freedom of expression, high glamour, and daringly irrepressible style. Founded by the French designer Manfred Thierry Mugler in 1973, Mugler pre-empted the themes of body positivity, gender fluidity, transformation, and confidence that dominate fashion now. American designer Casey Cadwallader joined the house in 2018 and has rejuvenated the house’s look and legacy, producing an astounding run of instantly recognizable garments. The story of Mugler is one of the avant-garde runway shows and boundary-breaking haute couture; of visionary beauty that transcends limits, embracing the otherworldly, the non-binary, and the technological.
Discussions for this collaboration began before Manfred Thierry Mugler’s passing in January 2022. The collection unites the house’s history with its present and future, offering various Mugler classics and signatures. The collection is a dynamic showcase of the Mugler world today and the intriguing ways that Cadwallader has twisted and reinvented the House to make it fresh and relevant for today.
This collection has that recognizable Mugler fit. Big shoulders, a tight focus on the waist, an ode to the curves and lines of the body, all a tribute to confidence. In a nod to the vision of the House’s founder, alongside the contemporary designs, are a series of very special, limited-edition archive remakes, selected by Cadwallader for their contemporary resonance and their testimony to Mugler’s central role in the glory years of the ’80s and 90’s catwalk drama.
