muglerreturns_sketch.jpgThe rumours are true... Thierry Mugler is making a return to the catwalk but with an all-together new capsule collection named Thierry Mugler Edition, to be unveiled next week in Paris.

In what some may say is a case of out with the old, and in with the new, this ready-to-wear collection will feature aspects of the brand's high-drama pieces but without the extravagance (boo, says I).

Nevertheless, creative director Rosemary Rodriguez personally picked pieces from the Mugler archives to rework for her latest offering.

"The idea was to keep the [principal] Mugler [codes] but bring them to another generation; to [retain] the sharp shoulders but not to overdo it; to enhance the body but to allow for movement," she said.

As you can tell from the new sketch (above, left) big shoulders and nipped in waists are high on list, breathing new life into the brand's original vision. Want the even better news? There is also a major Thierry Mugler exhibition planned for next year at an yet-to-be-named museum. Woot!
