Thierry Mugler “Brothers of Arcadia” Spring/Summer 2016 Teaser

Born 1948 in Strasbourg, France, Thierry Mugler began studying classical dance at 9, joining the ballet corps of the Rhin Opera at the age of 14.

At the age of 24, Thierry moved to Paris where he started designing for a well-known trendy boutique, soon gaining him the reputation for sexy, modern trends.

For Spring/Summer 2016, Thierry Mugler has developed a ready-to-wear collection, which was designed by Creative Director, Nicola Formichetti, who states:

“I was interested in the idea of fantasy, dreams, and voyeurism. I also like the idea of modern and ancient myths. I live in New York but grew up in Rome with the Baroque and Classical architecture and sculpture everywhere. So I suppose this project is a combination of the two things, there are surfers, footballers, and classical gods all rolled into one in this film. I was looking at Italian Neo-Realist cinema and then post that, where Fellini and Pasolini become more about myth and fantasy. At the same time, I loved the idea and accessibility and that everyday voyeurism on Xtube. Fashion is always referencing pornography, so there was an element in doing this film of just ‘cutting out the middleman’, but it is an erotic fashion film nonetheless.”
