In his quest for Mugler to be ‘Fashion Without Frontiers’, Nicola Formichetti, in collaboration with Mugler’s head menswear designer, Romain Kremer, created a collection that expands the idea of male heroes and clothing archetypes through cut, fabric and silhouette. An idea of masculine uniform predominates – ranging from ceremonial vestments to the Marines – exploring how much of men’s formal evening dress can trace its roots back to such uniforms but also how it is a uniform itself.

The music for the presentation is a new track and vocal by Azealia Banks, specially commissioned by Nicola Formichetti for the show. The film footage was captured during a 4 day, 24/7 live broadcast from the Mugler atelier leading up to and after the show.
