Padding and panelling have been used to good effect in this first Mugler collection under the eye of Nicola Formichetti. Playing on the themes of inner strength through anatomical reference points, this jacket from A/W 2011/12 also hints of a reference to the now departed Thierry Mugler’s fascination with the superhero’s form and costume. The padded upper this neoprene jacket is quilted polyester, stuffed with duck down for softness and comfort. The lower sections are figure-hugging neoprene. The middle panel, layered with a wool blend, creates a gradient in both colour and weight down the piece. The jacket fastens neatly with both zips and press studs, zipped pockets and cuffs maintain the clean aesthetic.
