Is it a bird? Is it a plane?

Is it a superhero?  No, but it may be the return of our favorite super designer, Thierry Mugler. Well, sort of.  Although he recently designed the costumes for Beyoncé's world tour "I Am...", it is Rosemary Rodriquez who has been designing capsule collections of womenswear for the Thierry Mugler label. Last week she showed new and archived pieces in Moscow.  Now, being shoppers extraordinaire at RARE vintage, we are ever hopeful for new pieces brilliantly designed but when it comes to archive pieces, we want the real thing.  We will hunt down the real thing - whether it is Halston, Ossie Clark, Yves Saint Laurent, Balenciaga, if it kills us (not really but it can get very dramatic and be quite the epic).

So, from the RARE vintage archive of couture is this black velvet Thierry Mugler Couture dress. It has strong shoulders, a fitted but not tight bodice and a red stripe running down the front of the skirt.  It is cut slightly higher in the front so you can see the red lining the skirt of the dress. It is elegant and sexy - which is such a trademark of Mugler's work.  We could even have seen Miss Fierce, Miss Sasha Fierce, dancing the night away in this!

1980s black velvet and matte silk dress with red detail.  Size 6.
