First look: Mugler Pre-Fall 2015
Fashion's black brigade
Unlike his predecessor, Nicola Formichetti, Mugler's collections are now slightly more subdued, as David Koma sprinkles his minimalistic ethos onto the designs with more wearable silhouettes and sleek hardware. The Georgian designer produced a collection that was mostly black with pops of rich navy, white and crimson, seen across an array of mini dresses and mannish jackets.
Koma created a real-world appeal to the usually avant-garde aesthetics of the French fashion house for Pre-Fall, designing various takes on the trenchcoat and designing beautiful cutout knits that gave an elegant softness to the hard-edged lines of the clothes.
Koma also introduced some embellishment for this collection, attaching silver metal hook-and-eye closures on blazers and skirts, while using soft leather fabric on shirts and outerwear, with Koma adding, "Mugler without leather is not very Mugler."
