Jazz Hands! Mugler Takes The Stage


Mugler Follies

Thierry (or, as he’s now called, Manfred) Mugler has found the perfect stage on which to reinvent himself—a literal one. This winter, the eighties legend, who returned to his namesake label as creative adviser after Nicola Formichetti’s departure in April, will open Mugler Follies, a full-throttle revue (i.e., variety show) that, as his Web site details, will consist of acrobats, actors, models, singers, eroticism, technology, lots of lights, original songs, and beyond. Set to open in December at Paris’ Théâtre Comédia, the show, which guests can enjoy over dinner, or champagne, will undoubtedly be packed with dramatics and razzle-dazzle. But what has us most excited are the costumes: Judging by the site’s illustrations, the wardrobe is a sexed-up space-age Mugler fantasy at its best.
