The home of Mugler has a brand new man — and, it could appear, a brand new celebrity fan.
How do you get a celebrity like Cardi B to attend your first-ever trend present? Apparently, you begin buying and selling emails along with her workforce, and simply ask. That’s precisely what occurred on Wednesday morning (Sept. 26), when the pop singer turned up on the intimate trend present for Casey Cadwallader’s debut on the home of Mugler.
Never heard of Casey? Well, you’re about to. The American designer took the reins at Mugler in December, after stints at Marc Jacobs, Narciso Rodriguez and Acne Studios. He takes over a home that had its heyday within the 1980s, when designer Thierry Mugler gained fame for fetishistic designs and extreme, sculptural silhouettes, that includes such odd gildings as automobile fins, and nuts and bolts.
Cadwallader’s 2018 take was respectful, however much less severe--more about releasing the physique than attempting to mould it into some unreasonable preferrred. To that finish, the muse for the gathering was the type of stretchy Spandex bike shorts made well-known by Kendall, Kylie and Kim Kardashian, and worn on Wednesday by Cardi within the entrance row.
He added refined corsetry, hook-and-eye, and lacing particulars, tapping into the home’s inherent sexiness, however within the context not of Mugler's extreme minidresses, however as an alternative free-floating parachute tops, ballooning nylon clothes, crepe trousers, clothes and relaxed tailor-made jackets, all of which appeared like they'd enable a woman to bask in some lunch.
One of the star items, an uber cool PVC trench coat stuffed with cloth remnants, plastic baggage, chain clippings, jewellery, cigarette butts, screws and damaged glass bits, paid homage to Mugler’s love of strange supplies. Meanwhile, marbleized Latex cloth had a futuristic vibe, normal into wet-look skirts and clothes that enhanced each feminine curve, as did the spiraling seams of rad-looking denim trousers that you simply don’t should be a star to tug off.
Still, right here’s hoping Cardi would possibly give the brand new American designer in Paris some love when she makes her first televised awards present efficiency for the reason that start of her little one, taking the stage on the American Music Awards on Oct. 9.
