Mugler AW13

Three sides to every story, as the triangle invades Mugler's AW13 collection

The triangle was a motif that ran throughout Mugler, from the die-cut invite to the patent leather shape integrated into the cutting on the back of jackets.

Formichetti talked of "the ability to become someone else in a digital world," and here that revolved around the trinity of tailoring, aeronautical and military regalia, which chemical injections (sometimes patent too) of highlighter-pen pink, yellow and green.

From commando to officer, with flak jackets, Mao collars and combat boots, this was a literal take on the tougher side of the digital world, addressing the way it's becoming policed. Given all the hacking stories and trial of Julian Assange over Wikileaks, that's pertinent.
