Mugler Musings

So, I'm currently enduring winter doldrums. I'm finding very little excitement and inspiration for style, and within my interest for art in general. Call it winter blues, but in short: new shit don't excite me no more. (Thank you, Drake, for summing up my sentiments in one lyric.) 

I browsed my usual sources of inspo (Tumblr, Pinterest, my fave blogs, etc.), and I still felt unrefreshed. Eventually, style.com provided some relief with Thierry Mugler's Pre-Fall 2015 collection. Holy! I'm so impressed with the clean lines, exquisite tailoring, metal grommets, and contrasting fabrics. Very Versace-esque (think the metal pin dress style), except with just enough skin exposure. So sleek and bold! The collection is structured, with just the right touch of femininity and sexy. 

Below are my top 7 favorite looks:
