a visionary designer
Monsieur MUGLER appeared on the fashion scene in 1973.
A true visionary, he revolutionized the fashion world imbuing everything he touched with a sense of excess, precision and freedom that continues to shape the brand today. Blurring the borders between reality and fantasy, his imagination and know-how are unlimited.
This is what makes MUGLER such a singular brand.
Inspired by ballet, architecture, photography and art, MUGLER’s personality is unique. From the genius of its fragrances, started in 1992 with Angel, to the craftsmanship and creativity of its designer, Casey Cadwallader, who has captured the MUGLER essence so perfectly, MUGLER continues to boldly drive into the future, united through fashion and fragrance.
Uniting dualities, the world of MUGLER under the creative direction of Casey Cadwallader is a laboratory for change. Harnessing the transformative spirit of the house founder, MUGLER stands for a forward-thinking and disruptive approach to fashion through the lens of culture.
An eloquent exchange of fashion and fragrance with the disciplines of art, industrial design, architecture and technology inform the vocabulary of the house, just as they affect our collective human experience every day. MUGLER will explore a progressive and diverse vision of femininity, acknowledging the dynamic reality of our daily lives and the clothes we need to elevate them. By broadening the offer into a complete daywear wardrobe, the MUGLER silhouette evolves to enable freedom and power through a new ease and fluidity. Innovation will marry cutting-edge R&D with ‘old-tech’, in the understanding that traditional craft may be translated into new and contemporary creations.
Elements of underground culture and humor will be used to subvert the codes of Parisian ‘haute couture’, democratizing the idea of fashion as a platform for personal transformation and individuality.
a visionary perfumer
In the world of perfumery, MUGLER is the creator of avant-garde fragrances with highly addictive powers.
Clearing paths down which no one has dared to venture, cultivating the exceptional with a unique sense of the outrageous, MUGLER fragrances are unparalleled and instantly identifiable as Angel, Alien, and Aura. These creations are marked by an indulgence of powerful, contrasting notes, artfully dosed to strike a perfect balance. These fragrances captivate, with a perfect alchemy of the finest natural ingredients paired with high tech synthetic notes selected for their trailblazing creativity. The harmony of these notes is orchestrated with the artful mastery of fine olfactory savoir-faire and the desire to create something utterly new. The MUGLER harmony is born of brilliantly dosed and orchestrated contrasts. This creative process is made possible by allowing time for creation. And so, the first Oriental Gourmand fragrance in the history of perfumery was created: Angel, a pure and indulgent fragrance that transforms women.
Each fragrance unveils new facets of their personality. A radiant perfume, Alien reveals the goddess within each one of us. An instinctive fragrance, Aura MUGLER invites you to reconnect with your senses. Unique masculine creations, Alien Man embodies a positive, elegant masculinity while A*Men brings to life the contemporary male hero every man aspires to be.
The harmony of MUGLER is born from its contrasts.
