Mugler FW20 honors the timeless mystique of the female form
Mugler’s Fall/Winter 2020 collection, the eighth collection from American designer and creative director Casey Cadwallader, was shown at Paris Fashion Week earlier this week. Supermodel Bella Hadid and Swedish R&B beauty Snoh Alegra both made Instagram waves in their show pieces. The collection has had no problem at all garnering the cool attention of onlookers both within the fashion world and outside of it and we can see why.
Heavenly, with a touch of rockstar, eros is the emphasis this time around.
Also known as love and desire, eros is the ancient Grecian concept that sought to capture the melting fury of physical passion. This collection raises the question of how we women wear our desires. In our eyes, on our necks. In plain sight, but still as our secret. Cadweller’s silhouettes are elegantly engineered to bring our gazes straight to the breasts, the pelvis. Still, they reveal nothing. They keep us waiting, wanting. It’s a magic trick.
Architecturally intuitive, the collection is spotlighted by its lush cut-out bodysuits; pieces which leave the female form to play a sophisticated game of hide and seek with itself. Silence versus commotion; privacy versus exposure. Seductive, stoic and sensual, the collection embodies the stony foxiness of modern women. Black mesh, asymmetrical leather dresses, with subtle colors taking the cake. Bodies in brown like melted chocolate. Rich like earth. Indigo tones as still and deep as water. Quiet sensuality oozes from every piece.
It’s a gorgeous synthesis of competing atmospheres.
Let’s take a look at a few of our favorite looks from the show.
