These references are transcribed in a variety of ways. Ranging from subtle nuances only highlighted in the details, to bold homages to the past. Corsetry has always been an essential part of the DNA of this historic house. Thus, intense lacing combined with the conformity of a rigid construction is often observed in the archives. With recent innovations in product development, Mugler’s creative director Casey Cadwallader is perfecting the art of corsetry by taking it to a completely new level: It is now in-built accentuating the shape from within; to make oneself feel more comfortable and radiant from inside out. Hailey Bieber and Emilia Clarke have been spotted wearing as such.
A Mugler silhouette is all about making an individual feel sexy, beautiful, and confident; to serve what one needs to seize the day. The flavors of corsetry infused with razor-sharp tailoring are crucial to portray that powerful message; a Mugler jacket has the right dose of just that; a strong shoulder with a beautiful waist and round hip. In a recent interview with ODDA magazine, Cadwallader talked about a transparent corset jacket to be one of his favorites from the Spring Summer 2020 collection: “the jacket was one of those moments when I snuck couture into the ready-to-wear show collection…it took two weeks to sow!”.
Ciara hosted the American music awards wearing that corset jacket, followed by Emily King, who wore it for the Grammys earlier this year.
