Thierry Mugler Couture Denim Dress With Tailored Black Silk Bodice, 1990s

About

This is an incredible 1990s couture piece by Theirry Mugler who was renowned for the unique style and structure of his designs which artfully achieved balance between urban edginess and feline sophistication. The designer has adapted a city style dress with a high wasitband that echoes the form of a 19th century set of stays, creating an empire line fit beneath the bust. The majority of the piece is comprised of a denim style fabric in slate grey however, the bust is made of an opaque elasticated black chiffon fabric with spaghetti shoulder straps. The square neckline and straps are trimmed with a chiffon frill which subverts the formality and austerity of the garment and emulates the chemise slip of the regency era. Curved darts over the front and reverse of the hip lift the silhouette from beneath the waistband as it falls into a straight skirt finishing below the knee. The contrasting elements of this piece are consolidated with a front lacing corset in matching grey fabric. Diagonal strips of fabric descend from the sides the corset to the navel and are sewn with prominent seams to suggest boning. The garment is fully lined in silk, a dark navy for the corset, and eggshell blue for the dress. There is a central zip fastening at the reverse of the dress. This extrodinary piece is in excellent vintage condition and marked a French size 38 which would best suit US size 4-6, UK size 8-10.
