    Sorry, but the plastic look leaves me cold. Literally. And I wonder if shoes will get any higher.

    Mugler is back.
    Still the Montana signature, tortured, 3D, exaggerated silhouette, aliens…. but au retour des temps modernes! Gaga has found her new designer!

    mugler was sexy as hell. very different but cool.

    The show was amazing and Lady Gaga's debut added a lot to the intensity and wow-factor of the show! I thought it was really great that they streamed the show live on the Internet!

    Are all of the models looking down because of the precarious/insane shoes that they're wearing?

    i remember loving this look when if
    made the first rounds in the late 70's . . .
    what a futuristic departure from it was from the
    60's designs . . . i loved it then, but
    fashion has become way since ~ this is more like
    a dream remembered ~

    the only modernization i see now is the
    wonderful footwear . . .

    It's funny that earlier this week i going through some of Mugler's early works with model Jerry Hall, now this. I'm glad you caught the show, not insane about Gaga but I'm excited about the future of the brand.

  24. Gabrielle Pascua

    March 3, 2011 at 10:43 am

    Wow! I didn't even notice the Montana silhouette and lines (no doubt due to my fascination with everything else that was going on)! That would definitely be something to look forward to.

    But I have to admit, Formichetti is definitely the ideal fit for Mugler, and if it's making it's revival (after HOW MANY YEARS?!) I would definitely be ecstatic.

    idk its just all very gaga and the plastic (i agree w/ the comment above) does leave me feeling cold. who else besides gaga would wear this?

    Oh thank you for this come back.Mugler has still a lot to show and to teach.I remember a picture i take form his boutique when i was my first time in Paris in 1995.

    I love art, I love fashion, and I love new. However, I respectively must say, all of those together must be flattering on one's body. This futuristic look is very cool, but I don't see anyone wearing this out on the street, nor do I anticipate this becoming a trend to the fullest extent. I would be more impressed with someone who could combine the futuristic look with a more practical approach. Anyone can put plastic on a model and say its high fashion. Not anyone can use plastic and fabric to look, fresh, flattering and fashionable. I'm not trying to be offensive or disrespectful to this designer in any way, this is only my opinion of the "Gaga" trends.

    I loved the clothes. Don't think Gaga's performance added anything and the music didn't fit at all but the clothes are very gaga-esque, very boundary pushing. Will be watching him

    I believe that now is too soon to say if Mugler is come back but surely a stylist like Fornicheti and his friendship with Gaga help the maison a lot.

    maybe exagerate looks but cool!

    I hope there is a Montana comeback. My boyfriend and I were having lunch in Paris a month ago and through the snow, a man in a moustache and red bomber jacket came to the window by our table.

    He waved at us, we waved back, he blew us a kiss and kept walking.

    Then I realised that that was Claude Montana. He's sweet, I have no idea what his designs look like these days, but I wish him all the best.

    Its cool collection but i dont see any new proposal or something edgy reminds me jean paul gaultier older collectons . I think is more the fact that lady gaga appeared on the runway that got so many attention.

    I don't get it. It's all a rehash of ever thing we've seen in the last few years from Rick Owens to Olivier Theyskens@nina ricci Gareth Pugh to Margiela. The only exception is he's showing more skin. I remember Mugler from the 90's and it was all about creating something spectacular. this kinda fell short from that. Putting Lady Gaga on stage I guess validates what he's doing, NOT!!!

    I'm very happy to see emphasis on shoulders in so many of these runway shows. Shoulders can be a great asset! Pad up those shoulders and your hips immediately look slimmer by contrast…..a V-shape. Very flattering silhoettes here. The last photo is out of this world…..nothing one is likely to see on the street but it is superb design and I love it as concept!

    Mugler and Montana were huge in the 80s. The party was over by the mid nineties. The problem both designers faced was that their particular ( call it futuristic – I felt that with Mugler, there was also a certain romanticisme ) style could not evolve. It was bound to a silhouette, that heavely emphasized on the shoulder. All tries by both designers to adjust their silhouettes to the Zeitgeist did fail. It was by the admiration of a younger generation of designers like the late Mr. Mcqueen that had put the Mugler look back on the map in the 2000s. So it does not surprise that Lady Gaga runs at the forefront. Mugler does what he does brilliant. His greates asset is also his biggest problem. Right now it is fresh to an audience who were wearing diapers when it first happened. If both Mugler (and Montana – if there should be a comeback) do not have more tricks up their sleeves for the future, it will be a short comeback.

    I'm sorry, I can't love this line. It's too much, and not in a good way. What a contrast to the luxurious, lovely jewel tones and furs of some of the other shows! I don't find anything fresh or exciting here, just strange and in no way wearable.

  63. Davidikus

    The brand is back, but in a diluted way. It's not as bold as the original. It will take a few seasons before we can tell whether Mugler is back for good.

    Let's wait & see for Montana… It entirely depends on who owns it but the fact there has been so much press around the book suggest something is going on!

    So, (thinking out loud here) there's been this fringe trend for a while of really altering/distorting the body with gauges, horn implants, scar-tattos, wings, hardware, etc. I think he's imagining the inevitable progression of that trend as it gets extended to a more outrageous level. Instead of breast implants, what if people started getting camel humps on their shoulders? Or bracelets implanted under the skin? Or…? None of us ever could have predicted that people would voluntarily have their tongues surgically split, or poke holes the size dimes in their nostrils, but it's fast moving inward from the fringes. Am I stating the obvious? Anyway, this is to say I think the designer is working through an interesting and relevant exploration.

    mugler is mugler in a new and different way..but careful a stylist is not a designer …and a best of show with some updates to the state of art could not already open new way to success….will see how the story goes !

    Good grief. there is a difference between costume design and fashion design. There is for many designers an overlap and there should not be, as far as I'm concerned.

    The new lead designer for Mugler is Nicola Formichetti, Gaga's stylist. This collection is beautiful. Great photos as always, I appreciate the updates on the runway shows for inspiration!

    I love the hair and eye makeup on these models, and I love the beige top, black sirt, and great shoes combo pic, and the long white dress. The pic at the end looks very Lady Gaga, I wonder if Mugler did make that see through outfit for her then? Hmmm.

    When I worked in retail a long time ago, once in a great while I used to see Thierry Mugler come into the shop I used to work in. He seemed to be OK attitude-wise.

    I doubt Mugler is back. Maybe it is just the first collection, maybe there is still a big lacking of creativity, which is overshadowed by Lady Gaga's presence. Thierry Mugler inspired the artists he used for his shows, not the other way around. He always made his models look like a creature unlike no other. I wish he comes back, not just the brand.

    I think it is very wearable!!! The shoes are tall, but its mostly platform, not arch. Its the high arches that are terrible to wear. Platforms are actually very comfortable. I like the idea of an interesting bracelet or armlet underneath a thin mesh turtleneck. I think it would look lovely with a white bodycon skirt and those shoes. Just tone down a very little bit, and its classy and perfect for summer. What is with you people? Just because Lady gaga is involved does not mean its crazy and not wearable. All shows exaggerate looks.
