It’s been a while since we had an inconsequential fashion beef. Hold my beer says Manfred Thierry Mugler, who ruffled some feathers on Instagram following yesterday’s Dior extravaganza.

The set for Dior’s FW21 virtual show was inspired by Deee-Lite album artworks, taking shape in a backdrop of exploding suns and planets. During proceedings, a Honey Dijon remix of the house group’s “How do you say..." played, which had been edited to incorporate the word “Dior.” In ‘91, Deee-Lite recorded a runway version of the song specifically for Mugler, subbing in his name instead.

“I guess it is an homage or maybe musical chairs?” read the notoriously press-shy designer’s Instagram caption, followed by a thinking emoji. Mugler also tagged Dior, Kim Jones, and Honey Dijon in the post. While the similarities are obvious, it’s hard to imagine that Jones — a student of fashion — used the song without knowing its catwalk history. As Muller alludes, it’s perhaps a knowing tribute to the enfant terrible's glory days.
