Building on the Japanese theme they showed for fall, Mugler’s Nicola Formichetti and Sébastien Peigné worked the motif into a more sporty-streetwear direction for resort. Ultragraphic accents, sculptural volumes and cutouts were still present, but tweaked with a cool attitude that combined Kabuki and science-fiction references. Volume was more boxy, especially on the tops. Big, glossy “rubberized” jersey T-shirts served as the canvas for bold oversize motifs that combined parts of the Mugler logo with the Japanese flag (red and white were dominant colors here). Two-dimensional Japanese construction inspired the round-patterned tops, while padding was applied to the hem of a kimono-fabric skirt and on the sleeves of silk tops.
