Nicola Formichetti, the half-Japanese creative director behind Mugler, really let his roots show for his brand's innovative interpretation of resort. With the help of designer Sébastien Peigné, the duo devised a sharp new aesthetic for the cult-favorite French label by combining futuristic elements with elevated versions of traditional Japanese garments.
Similar to Formichetti's past collections, this range is heavy on the red, white and black, but pops of powder pink and animal print prove that his vision is anything but one-note. We're also seeing a strong focus on structural silhouettes by way of origami fold-over pieces, boxy cuts and paper-thin winged shoulders.
While just about every piece is fit for a Tron or Prometheus sequel set in Tokyo, particularly spacey numbers include a pastel kimono-like wrap with an intricate twist-tie, a skin-tight gray bodysuit with a red and yellow belt, an up-to-there front slit skirt (I'm telling you, it's a thing) and a jacket with what appears to be an oversized visor at the hemline. See the complete collection here.
