Mugler and Wolford to launch capsule collection
Wolford, the Austrian specialist in high-end tights, has joined forces with Mugler to create a joint 'skinwear' capsule collection. The exclusive collection consists of 12 designs, created under the direction of Mugler's creative director Casey Cadwallader. The partnership follows previous Wolford collaborations with Amina Muaddi and Alberta Ferretti.
The collection features bodysuits, dresses, gloves, leggings, cycling shorts, designed in a special flocked pattern with couture detailing, made from shaping fabric with Sheer technology and innovative refined mesh. Mugler's iconic sculpting stockings are also available in a new range of colors.
Wolford and Mugler have a long history of collaboration. As early as the 1980s, the two brands teamed up to launch an exclusive collection of two-piece suits under the direction of Thierry Mugler.
This new collection created under the direction of creative director Cadwallader, compliments the womens body, without compromising on comfort thanks to the clever combination of Mugler’s bold designs and Mugler’s innovative techniques.
"Casey's unique sensibility and personal vision have revived Mugler's artistic and experimental legacy," said Silvia Azzali, Wolford's commercial director. "His talent honors the craftsmanship and attention to detail required to design these couture creations. Together, we will continue to strengthen Wolford's position as a forward-thinking leader in the skinwear industry through our exclusive and exceptional collaborations."
Cadwallader added: "Wolford is the world leader in second skin and is particularly valued by Mugler for its expertise and sophistication. I had the chance to see the latest innovations and archival pieces from the brand and to work directly with the Wolford team on this new collection."
Zhong Lin was the photographer for the publicity campaign, which featured four models including Lara Stone, Sora Choi and Aj Yel, styled by Haley Wollens.
The collection will be available from September 16 in Wolford and Mugler shops and online, as well as in an exclusive international network of Wolford and Mugler boutiques and multi-brand retailers.
As reported in the annual results for 2021, Wolford's financial situation has improved.
