On the second day of Paris Fashion Week, French fashion house Mugler debuted a Fall/Winter 2020 collection defined by sharp, architectural inspirations and contrastingly subdued leather and mesh fabrics. At the helm of Mugler, creative director Casey Cadwallader visualized the Maison’s next generation of effortlessly chic constructions and female-empowered silhouettes, paying respect to his academic background in architecture. Inserting his own identity into his eighth collection for the design house, Cadwallader simultaneously keeps Thierry Mugler's legacy alive in a collection of masterful technique. 

Throughout the collection, intricate tailoring complements the female form, while boxy jackets and angular cuts hold true to the American designer’s educationally-inspired roots. Sheer dresses show just enough skin between strategically placed inserts, and leather skirts elevate Cadwallader’s ensembles with swooping garter belts. On the runway, Bella Hadid found prominence in a black-and-nude bodysuit paired with knee-high boots in the same colorway. Among the plethora of standout looks, a matching, body-tight leather top and pant combination confidently commanded the crowd’s attention at the show, while leather inclusions in a bold blue hue elevated several styles with a pop of vibrant color. 

Explore V’s favorites of Casey Cadwallader’s impeccably crafted Fall/Winter 2020 designs below.
