Million Dollar Mugler

David Koma should fine-tune his tone of voice and the house codes. He has the talent to do so, but this collection felt derivative.

PARIS, France — Let's call it the Saint-Laurent — in the Vaccarello iteration — aftermath, or better that kind of Vogue Paris look.You've seen it a zillion times: impossibly high stilettos, impossibly short skirts, an aggressive stance and a general air of chic slut with a million dollar lifestyle.

The look is cold and menacing and very sexy. It's flattering on models. Far from the catwalk, well, it's just a little vulgar. The Mugler show today fell flat on that line. Albeit revolving around Mugler's very own peak shoulder, it came across as a bit Balmain-flashy and a tad too much Saint-Laurent angular. It was't vulgar at all, that needs to be said, but it felt derivative. David Koma should fine tune his tone of voice and the house codes. He has the talent to do so.
