SPRING SUMMER 2022
With the urgent return to the breakneck speed of life as we once knew it, the fourth wall is broken.
Mugler creative director Casey Cadwallader takes to the Hollywood backlot with the third installment of an ambitious trilogy of fashion films directed by Torso Solutions for Mugler. Breaking out of the black box and the white cube, the latest episode warps East Coast and West Coast of his native America in a trompe l ’oeil exploration of time and space .
FALL WINTER 2021-22
With immediacy and speed, Casey Cadwallader continues to explore the nuances of the Mugler lexicon through the evocative medium of fashion film. In a cinematic satire directed by torso solutions, the fall winter 2021-22 collection is revealed in a series of sleek vignettes that examine the tropes of the back lot, studio photography and the runway show by breaking the 4th wall and harnessing the power of the gaze.
SPRING SUMMER 2021 – PART 02
Presented as a metafictional commentary on the fashion show construct, part 02 of the Spring Summer 2021 collection designed by Casey Cadwallader is a no-holdsbarred expression of electric Mugler energy. Directed by Torso in Long Island city, New York, a 6.5-minute film questions the linear continuum of a runway presentation, as hyper-charged Mugler characters exhibit feats of near superhuman strength through stunt doubles, pov cameras and a satirical use of the infinite void.
SPRING SUMMER 2021 – PART 01
In an unprecedented season, Mugler creative director Casey Cadwallader presents an ambitious prelude to the Spring Summer 2021 collection in a short film by Florian Joahn and a still visual portfolio by Carlijn Jacobs. Embracing the pulsing fantasia of the Mugler universe like never before, Cadwallader continues an inspired trajectory – a postmodern clash of the Mugler past and present.
