Mugler | Paris SS15

Paris, France: Designer David Koma’s first collection for Mugler Paris offered bold, feminine styles for the modern woman at any point in her day—infusing sportswear, more tailored pieces and evening wear into the Pre-Collection Spring/Summer 2015. In fact, all of the pieces can easily be used to transition from day to night and through different moods. The sleek-haired model went from wearing a graceful white pants outfit to a short black dress to a sheer-topped evening gown effortlessly.

His sensual twist on tailored silhouettes merged blazers and an office-like appearance with cutouts, straps, high slits, zippered accents and bare midriffs for a daytime feel with a nighttime twist. While showing a hint of skin in all the looks, the simple blacks and whites also conveyed an elegant femininity.

The contrast of black and white also was prevalent in the line’s sleek evening gowns, offering varying shades of modesty from a deep-V corset-like black gown to a shimmery, sequined fitted look to a more demure color-blocked shoulder-covering shawl-like look.

Inspired by the mid-century art movement of Lyrical Abstraction for some of his more colorful pieces, Koma used a graphic zig-zag design “applied as if by the effortless hand of a marker pen” to break the purity of the knee-length cocktail dresses. The tangerine, lemon and cobalt colors provided a deep contrast against the black.

Some of the line’s sportier looks lent an even more vibrant and energetic vibe with splashes of tangerine and cobalt that were made more elegant with taming black accents.
