Catsuits for the common people: Mugler is collaborating with H&M

...and other fashion news you missed

In news that came as a thunderclap to the Dua Lipa fandom, H&M has announced a collaboration with Mugler. Set to launch this spring, H&Mugler is the first major link-up since Simone Rocha’s capsule collection in 2021 and compounds a longstanding tradition of fashion designers allying themselves with regular people who shop in Westfield (among them Karl Lagerfeld, Balmain, and Versace). But where so many of these partnerships have serviced a niche micro-audience of fashion insiders desperate to get their hands on cheap Comme des Garçons and Margiela, the decision to collaborate with Mugler is evidence of Casey Cadwallader’s mainstream appeal; the high street is pretty much indebted to the designer’s vision of cut-out bodysuits so beloved by pop stars. 

In other news this week, London Fashion Week came to a close with JW Anderson, Dilara Fındıkoğlu, Central Saint Martin’s graduate showcase, and Daniel Lee’s big debut at Burberry. Diesel kicked things off at Milan Fashion Week with a colossal pile of Durex condoms, while Fran Drescher and Siouxsie Sioux gave birth to a lovechild at Moschino. Elsewhere, Jonathan Anderson’s future in fashion came under threat by Fashion Nova, while one livid London designer waged war on UPS.
