Mugler 2011 Fall Winter in contrast to Alexandre Vauthier Spring Summer 2011


Hard for me to have a clear opinion on it as, of course, its impossible for me not to compare this new version "Mugler" to real Thierry Mugler. I wonder if I would like it if it wasnt called Mugler??? I think Alexandre Vauthier who studied under Thierry Mugler and now designs on his own is more interesting now. I'd seed my interest in Vauthier, not this new form of Mugler. Though I dont think this Mugler is bad, I think its fine, but to call it MUGLER is hard for me. It feels like I'm being sacrilegious or something. I give Nicolla credit for doing this. It must have been VERY hard. The biggest shoes to fill, many people to please, and of course the Thierry Mugler fans could never be satisfied. I of course will check his collection out in the future, but nothing here killed me. There isnt one pice I gagged over. I dont wanna seem bitter I PROMISE. Im not trying to be a twat, or to compare it to original Mugler, but its hard not to... If youre asking me for my opinion Id say our time is valuable and if I had to decide which to follow in a crunch then follow Vauthier for sure. Of course I would like to see where this new Mugler goes, but I think without Gaga nobody would care...
It was enough like Mugler to still be Mugler but not amazing enough to be an admired label, it seemed like an affordable bridge line of real Mugler for a younger audience. Like when they tried "Mugler TM" in 99' before the label went under. Actually Im sure it was meant to be this exactly, so on that level, it is a complete success. I think younger audiences who dont know original Mugler might LOVE IT. I would just liked to have seen two or three POWER PIECES, not practical, totally amazing, "costume" press pieces, Im surprised it didnt have them.

"I'd seed my interest in Vauthier, not this new form of Mugler."

Do you mean you would "CEDE" your interest in Vauthier?

"To cede" means to admit or acknowledge reluctantly. It comes from the word "concede."

"To seed" means to ejaculate up somebody's hole.

Were you wanting to cum up Vauthier's butt?

That's okay, too.

Im aware of the difference between cede and seed and I meant SEED as I would plant my interest and attention to grow in Vauthier.
