Tailleur by Thierry Mugler

Haute Couture is composed of two ateliers: one devoted to flou (dressmaking) and one to tailleur (tailoring).  

Thierry Mugler is a master of the tailleur.  His dramatic futuristic jackets made women look like super sexy, super heroine, femme fatales, were perfectly draped and cut.   Despite a certain amount of I am Woman, Hear Me Roar caricature to Mugler's designs there is a crisp precision to all of his clothes.

like the sequin edged scalloped peplum on this 1989 jacket that we had at RARE vintage awhile back.

The fit was irresistible to women and they flocked to Mugler's suits.

and the same suit which we presently have at RARE Vintage for all of you Mugler/Helmut Newton vixens...

and a modern day Mugler muse.  So cool don't you think?!  I love this look!

Here is a new, crazy beautiful Mugler jacket in an amazing pearl colored silk organza with a wave detail collar and waist cinched by a signature Mugler silver belt buckle (belt is signed Thierry Mugler) at RARE vintage.  I'm thinking how incredible this jacket would look with a pair of high lace up boots...
