The Brooklyn Museum Celebrates the Fascinating, Edgy Universe of Thierry Mugler, Balasz Takac, δημοσίευση στο Widewalls [18/11/2022]Marilena Pateraki
Extreme shoulder pads, pointy cuts, theatrical makeup, hair, and accessories characterize fierce and often outlandish, glamazonian silhouettes of the ground-breaking French designer Thierry Mugler. Ever since this figure emerged on the international fashion scene, he has fascinated pop culture luminaries and different audiences across the world.
The Mugler fashion shows were unique spectacles soaked in drama. This particular approach to costume making has evolved throughout time to include other media, meaning that Mugler worked on films, got himself engaged with photography, and issued the iconic Angel perfume. The Mugler look is highly acclaimed among historians, so it is not unusual that his designs end up in museums.
In 2019, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts conceived Thierry Mugler: Couturissime, the first all-encompassing retrospective that explores the tantalizing Imaginary of Thierry Mugler. So far, the exhibition has traveled to Germany, the Netherlands, and France. Recently, it has been adapted to fit the Brooklyn Museum by Thierry-Maxime Loriot, curator of the exhibition, and Matthew Yokobosky, Senior Curator of Fashion and Material Culture at the Brooklyn Museum. The audiences will have a chance to see nearly 130 outfits alongside accessories, videos, photographs, sketches, and fragrances.
