David Koma’s first runway show for the Mugler Spring 2015 collection was positioned as “a blank slate” for the customer. The label presumably hired Koma to bring Mugler back to planet earth, where women shop.
Koma sculpted the body with lithe silhouettes—athletic little black dresses both long and short came with alluring keyhole cutouts, highlighting numerous erogenous zones from hip to midriff and décolleté. Chrome garter belts traced the lines of the dresses and snaked through jackets. It was also easy to be seduced by his many reduxes of Le Smoking. Koma’s spring proposition of sexy tailoring and slinky dresses with anatomical cutouts traced in chrome coils was certainly more wearable than his predecessors.
The mostly monochromatic lineup of black and white, ice blue and orange included slick le smokings worn with bodysuits that were sliced into curvy cutouts, and tight crepe shifts, crop tops and pencil skirts also cut out to zone in on erogenous zones.
