The biggest shows of Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week

The fashion world mourns the passing of Thierry Mugler and Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week is back in full force. Stay up to date with the latest international fashion news of the week.

Thierry Mugler died at 73

Renowned and innovative fashion designer, Thierry Mugler, has died aged 73. The French designer was born in 1948 in Strasbourg, France, studying at the École des Beaux-Arts before moving to Paris in 1966. He launched his brand in the mid-1970s but rose to fame in the 1980s. Best known for his “power dressing”, working with sculptural silhouettes, surreal themes and delicately placed jewellery. Mugler was responsible for some of the most influential couture pieces in modern fashion history. As a fan of the “Femme Fatale”, his creations entered the world of science fiction, nature, surrealism and classical art. His pieces have inspired many designers over the years, including Balenciaga and Alexander McQueen, with looks directly inspired by the collections of the 90s.

Mugler has dressed a host of models and celebrities over the years, including Grace Jones, Beyoncé, Irina Shayk, David Bowie and Bella Hadid. He and his corset-maker, Mister Pearl, created Kim Kardashian’s 2019 Met Gala dress, Lady Gaga’s outfit in Telephone and Cardi B in several archive pieces. “Thierry Mugler was a defining force in fashion. Even his archival collection looks futuristic today,” wrote Tracee Ellis Ross. “What an honor it is to have a little piece [of] story with a true fashion icon. Rest in peace, Manfred Thierry Mugler.

Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris

Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week is back, with shows from Chanel, Schiaparelli, Dior, Jean Paul Gaultier and more. The week started with Schiaparelli, who returned to the track after two years. The pieces included a theme of three main colors: black, white and gold. Delicate and exquisite ornaments decorated the arms, legs, head and body of the models, worn with bags, shoes and elaborate headdresses. Chanel caused a stir when it opened its show with Grace Kelly’s granddaughter, Monegasque royalty, Charlotte Casiraghi, straddling the runway.

The world discovered Glenn Martens’ first Haute Couture collection for Jean Paul Gaultier, which drew on archive pieces and influences from his own artistic direction. Form-fitting fabrics, delicately gathered tulle and sculptural elements created a cacophony of architecture and historical elements. “It’s a celebration of Gaultier. I stayed close to the woman Jean Paul created in the past – the sheer diva beauty, the hips, whatever, all that drama he loved,” Martens said. The couture anatomy of Maison Valentino focused on the simplicity and elegance behind haute couture on a series of diverse designs. Other shows included Fendi, Elie Saab, Viktor & Rolf and Alexander Vauthier, and many more that were featured throughout the week.

Tribute to ALT planned for May

A tribute to the late Andre Leon Talley (ALT) will likely take place in May. The service will honor his life and work with the fashion industry, and will most likely take place at the Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem, where he often attended. The reason for this date is to avoid conflicts with Fashion Week schedules and the upcoming Met Gala. Few details are available at this time, but the event will celebrate the pioneer’s legacy in the industry.

Hugo Boss rebrands to capture a fresh, young attitude

Hugo Boss is changing its name. The two new brands, HUGO and BOSS are presented with an accompanying campaign, featuring Hailey Beiber, Kendall Jenner, Chris Hemsworth, Joan Smalls and Future. With a refreshed brand image, the designer will adopt a youthful, relaxed and playful strategy across products, retail stores and online.

The talents and personalities of the campaign perfectly embody what a boss stands for today,” said Daniel Grider, CEO of Hugo Boss.
