For Spring/Summer 2022, the brand’s Creative Director, Casey Cadwallader, reunited with Torso Solutions for the final instalment of a trilogy of fashion films shot in Los Angeles. With the “breakneck speed of life” at the core of its essence, Mugler Spring/Summer 2022 engages audiences in a cinematic adventure, starring icons Chloë Sevigny, Bella Hadid, Eartheater, Amber Valletta, and Megan Thee Stallion, to name a few. Creative Director Casey Cadwallader has learned to master by repeatedly designing outfits for Dua Lipa, Cardi B, Miley Cyrus and more A-list celebrities who were part of her custom designs.

Recently, he also co-directed a music video for Megan Thee Stallion and dressed Sevigny for her wedding after-party, both of which came about after working on this video.

The collection explores slickness and transparency underpinned by a ’90s, modernist vibe. But at the core of the Mugler brand is inclusivity – the pieces are made to fit all types of bodies.

Moreover, the collection features an all-star cast as the protagonists of a short film filmed by cameramen Shalom Harlow and Amber Valletta, presenting viewers with micro-narratives that transcend chronological time.

On the streets of New York, Megan Thee Stallion appears as a goddess on a billboard; Chloë Sevigny bathing and becomes Barbie Swaee; Shalom Harlow and Amber Valletta share a kiss, and two Bella Hadid’s turning the hood of a shiny limousine into their catwalk.

The collection is a strong exploration of its signature elements. The tight-fitting ombre dresses suspended from sculpted collars, a reference to a 1998 couture gown.

It also features shapewear silhouettes, denim, eveningwear, and tailoring pieces in sand-like, earthy tones that meet monochromes and denim, embracing the models’ curves through optic effects. In addition, the past meets the future as Manfred Mugler’s archival pieces are referenced through loops and hooks used to suspend draped tops, trousers, and skirts.

The brand also plays with the concept of asymmetry, new dégradé ‘Hoochie’ dresses, challenging the viewer with unexpected designs and colours. Cutout bodies and corsets are embellished with lycra panels, structured busts, and gloved sleeves. Tailoring is also reinvented with a focus on a hyperfeminine vision of womanhood. Wool jackets are cut wide open to unveil the models’ décolleté as they march intrepidly on the severely pointed pumps and stiletto sandals from the latest Mugler shoe collection.
