Mr. Mugler

Portrait of a visionary. Many stars, one universe

Mr Mugler
As a child, I had a very hard time living in the world that is imposed on us. I dreamed of creating another world, to my scale – one that was my own... Thierry mugler

The couture years

Weaving history

At the age of 20, Thierry Mugler left his hometown of Strasbourg. His destination: Paris. There, his allure and style were on display for all to see. Mugler would often wear his own creations and a freelance career as a designer soon opened up to him. He began by working with major fashion houses, then created his first collection in 1973 called «Café de Paris». Going against folkloric, unstructured fashion, the collection had an urban, sexy, flirty vibe, confident in itself. It exuded avant-garde ultra-femininity, a dramatization of the everyday unveiling of a woman. It was the same Thierry Mugler style that debuted with the creation of his house in 1974. Four years later, he was named «Designer of the Year» by both the press and the public. His success story had begun. Throughout the 1980s, the Thierry Mugler brand shone brightly with acclaimed collections, ingenious fashion shows that he conceived and directed, painting-like photos that he created himself, short films, video clips and films.

I always try to convey sensations, a sentiment... I always tell stories. Stories about men and women, inspired by all the poisonous flowers and mischievous creatures of the mythological world. Thierry mugler

Style

Couture by Thierry Mugler is both art and science. His cuts captivate while creating a stir. His silhouettes are distinct and instantly recognizable: anatomical, graphic, ultra-feminine and meticulous. The materials go hand in hand with movement, and peaks of fabric create new lines of strength to best showcase women, beautify them, mold to their bodies and reshape them as they desire. Close-fitting suits, rhinestone sheath dresses, structured bustiers, extravagant dresses and whimsical pieces each reveal conquering icons, extravagant divas, glamorous fairy-like stars and victorious sun goddesses. Contemporary heroines who summon dreams, fantasy, metamorphosis, conquest, the future and the extraordinary at fashion shows – events that are larger than life yet perfected to the detail. With clothes on her mind, the Mugler woman makes her presence known. All this before the perfumes, photographs and encounters...

The exploratory years

Haute Perfumery

Haute Perfumery emboldened: such is the road Thierry Mugler has paved since Angel came to life in 1992. This visionary designer creates exceptional fragrances and uses the finest natural and innovative materials, which are often extremely rare. They are bold scents full of character – original combinations that are instantly recognizable and always unforgettable. Their secret? Restrained, balanced combinations built around two to three overdosed notes. It is utter harmony and pure magic.

The artist

Fashion designer and perfumer Thierry Mugler is also a photographer – "one of the greatest of all time," according to Peter Lindbergh. It is a passion that he demonstrated clearly in his early career... In 1976, during a photo shoot, the designer gave Helmut Newton ample instructions on how to proceed. Annoyed, the photographer told Mugler to shoot the photos himself, beginning an adventure and a beautiful journey.

For his photos, Thierry Mugler travels all over the world in search of extraordinary staging and locations. Fascinated with gigantic proportions like with Dali and De Chirico, his painting-like photos reflect this: the landscape becoming architecture and architecture becoming landscape. Two books showcase his work: "Thierry Mugler Photographe" was published in 1988, followed by "Fashion Fetish Fantasy" in 1999. With equal force, the designer expresses this art of direction in his perfume advertising campaigns, captured through photography or film, as with the video clip "Too Funky" created for George Michael, one of countless encounters... Mylène Farmer, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Dita Von Teese are just a few of the so many modern icons-turned-fans who have been invited to enter Thierry Mugler's world during a photo shoot or a show... Many stars, one universe.
