Vintage Thierry Mugler White Linen Blend Skirt & Peplum Jacket Suit With Ruffles

$995

About

This gorgeous vintage Thierry Mugler linen blend skirt suit has so many unique details! You can wear the jacket with just about any other skirt or pair of pants you have in your wardrobe! The blazer jacket has cutwork on the lapels and is in Thierry Mugler's signature style, with shoulder pads and a fitted waist and peplum, creating a beautiful silhouette. It has two front snap closures with bows on top and pretty ruffles along the lapel and hem. The shoulders are nicely structured with shoulder pads and the jacket is fully lined. The fully lined, slightly flared pencil skirt has a narrow waistband with a flat hook and eye and a metal zipper down the back right seam for closure. This is another small detail that is found on vintage Thierry Mugler skirts-- an asymmetrical zipper on the skirt! This beautiful suit is made of 90% Viscose 10% Linen. Made in France and labeled size FR 42, and we estimate this would best fit a modern day US size 8/10.

About the Designer

Thierry Mugler

Fashion as sculpture, as avant-garde expression, as spectacle: Thierry Mugler’s career pushed the boundaries of what fashion design and clothing could mean.

Mugler, who went by Manfred in recent years, founded his brand in 1973 with his first personal collection. By the late 1990s, he was more famous for his fragrances, thanks to the brand’s best seller Angel. But the designer’s vintage evening gowns and dresses have recently returned to red carpets, worn by stars like Kim Kardashian and Cardi B.

Thierry Mugler’s penchant for performance, drama and costuming came from his background in ballet, having danced as a teenager with the Opéra national du Rhin in his hometown of Strasbourg, France. In the 1980s and ’90s, his couture shows were theatrical and futuristic, similar to those of his contemporaries Jean Paul Gaultier and Christian Lacroix. In one of Mugler’s shows, the then-pregnant legendary supermodel Pat Cleveland (part of the coterie of glamorous muses associated with designer Halston) was suspended from the ceiling and then glided down the runway surrounded by clouds of smoke. Mugler would become known for his immaculate tailoring as well as for his increasingly avant-garde designs that featured sharp cuts, sexy and fetishistic elements, an integration of metal and uniquely treated materials like PVC and leather.

Recent years have seen Mugler’s archival designs, especially from his 1995 haute couture show, take center stage, coinciding with the resurgence of camp in fashion and the return of bodycon dresses. The brand’s roster of clients has included some of the most visionary figures in fashion, from David Bowie and Diana Ross to Beyoncé and Lady Gaga, and the founder’s influence on over-the-top fashion can be seen in the work of designers such as Jeremy Scott and Alexander McQueen.
