‘I was interested in the idea of fantasy, dreams and voyeurism. I also liked the idea of modern and ancient myths,’ says Nicola Formichetti, the Creative Director of Mugler, about his thoughts behind this season’s collection and film. It was a sort of re-modernisation of myths, and a sublimation of the player.
The runway started with "new-ancient" athletes with gold applications on the upper side of the body, and classic trousers, then it started becoming more sporty: bright block colors, fluorescent green, orange, all printed on stretch athletic fabrics and garments– ranging from swimwear to a spin on motor cross gear – evoking the feel of a second skin.
This duality is also present in the motif of the dissected silhouette, where tailoring is frequently held together by a transparent strip that also splits top from bottom.
Formichetti's moodboard ,this time, was the film ,made with the photographer Branislav Jankic.
A conversion from photography to film, new sensations, new perspectives; a widespread view that captures different aspect of our society (ancient-contemporary) and our history specifically.
The music for the show is another proof of this cultural re-interpretation, starting from Franz Schubert's Piano Trio No.2 in E flat to Jessica 6. The band provides also an exclusive remix for the show and Nomi, the lead singer, is one of the stars of the film too.

It was 6:30 pm( after a Pitti day i'm usally walking like a dead body and tired like someone full of chicken) when i arrived at the old BARTOLINI's shop, ancient and historical shop near the Duomo, in Via De' Servi. A big crew was waiting outside , i was quite scared, but fortunately i got in immediately.
Beautiful dresses (pastel colors, plissè, chiffons,silks..) were all kept between the walls of this "under-deconstruction"shop.
There was in particular a beautiful white gown (it reminds us Black Swan's costumes) in a room lit by neon, and by all the mirror games, that attracted me , unfortunately we couldn't take detailed pictures, but the DETAILS, MY GOD THE DETAILS!!
