Description

A wool-blend skirt suit created in the 1990s by Thierry Mugler in the fashion house’s trademark royal blue. Architectural detailing abounds in the construction of the suit jacket. Tailored to the silhouette that the designer became known for, the suit jacket draws in the waist and adds volume around the hips - emphasising and highlighting the feminine figure. A single snap closure and hidden zip secure the front, finished with Mugler’s angular silver zip-pull - instantly recognisable to those in the know. The famous curves of the Mugler silhouette are echoed in the construction of the cuffs and two faux breast pockets. The skirt is cut to a high-waist, knee-length fit from coordinating royal blue cloth. It fastens at the rear with a tonal hidden zip and exposed silver snap closure. Both pieces are lined with cobalt-blue satin. The label reads “Thierry Mugler Activ” and the suit in rare dead stock vintage condition with the original garment tags attached. Made from a 75% wool / 25% rayon blend and tagged size 44, this will fit a range of sizes up to a UK 12 or US 8. Our model is a UK 8-10 and 5ft 11in / 180 cm, this suit was a good fit on her with a bit of room to spare.

Thierry Mugler was one of the high fashion worlds most avant garde designers, occupying the space between fashion and myth. Beyoncé, David Bowie, Lady Gaga and Kim Kardashian have all called upon him for his unique approach to couture. His ready-to-wear pieces were just as spectacular in workmanship and, of course, with prices to match. His secondary line was known as 'Active' and was replaced with 'Mugler' in 1993/1994. While prices were lower than his mainline collections, pieces were still made to a very high quality in Italy until 1993. The signature Mugler look was retained with trademark asymmetrical cuts, heavily padded shoulders, tiny waists and skinny trousers but in a way which looked more casual and comfortable to wear.
