mugler pfw aw12 image 1.jpgInsects were crawling all over Nicola Formichetti's Autumn collection for the house of Mugler yesterday. Not literally of course, but that's where the designer found his inspiration by revisiting Thierry Mugler's "Insect" collection from 1997.

Just like Gareth Pugh, Formichetti took sculpture to new heights with hugely exaggerated shoulders, laser cutting, spider thin dangly fringed skirts, and angular peplums took centre stage. Also quite remarkable were the bone-like structuring of armoured bodices which met with oversized furry arms. Dresses pleated and folded into milky white white forms which were also peppered with a bright red jumpsuit, a mustardy-orange column dress, and black mini skirts with cut-out sections. Along with the clearly adventurous there was an equal amount of relaxed looks such as a series of cream belted overcoats with fur collars.
