Thierry Mugler

Danièle Bott

Description

The designs of the iconic French couturier Thierry Mugler convey a powerful and seductive image of womanhood. His architectural, ultra-stylized silhouettes, his exploration of new materials, his passion for staging and spectacle, and his futuristic fantasies have left an indelible impression on the world of fashion.

Divided into five key themes that embody Mugler’s aesthetic—fantasy, anatomy, metamorphosis, heroines, and stars—this colorful anthology features examples of all his classic work, from outrageous catwalk shows to extravagant accessories. Celebrities, supermodels, and muses appear in original sketches and photographs by Mugler himself, along with images from some of the great names of fashion photography, including Helmut Newton, Guy Bourdin, and Jean-Paul Goude.

The book moves from the founding of the house in the 1970s, through the cutting-edge couture of the 1980s and 1990s, to today’s best-selling fragrances and the styling of spectacular shows and concerts for Beyonce´ and Cirque du Soleil.
