Mugler Anew


Enthusiasm for the eighties is on the wane, so it was smart for Rosemary Rodriguez to relaunch the Thierry Mugler line today with a collection she described as épure, meaning the excesses were swept away. You could see echoes of Mugler’s exaggerated shoulders and inverted triangle silhouettes in her collection, but she savvily avoided the clichés, save for a few leather hourglass dresses with padded hips. An evening number, on the other hand, was so densely encrusted with glinting crystals that it might make a Rodriguez convert out of Beyoncé. Mugler himself designed stage costumes complete with padded hips, bien sûr, for the superstar’s recent tour.
