If there was ever a hotter warrior princess meet futuristic trophy wife mandate, the Mugler fall/winter 2016-2017 ready-to-wear collection showcased on the Paris Fashion Week runway has to be the best contender, if not the only these days. It is truly a super style with incredible designs and so much going for it that we find it hard to move our gaze away. It’s like saying that being sexy is not only all right, but to be celebrated, without having it look like the ladies are selling themselves on the streets.
There are, of course, the daily designs as well, including the brown set that includes a matching jacket with that ankle cropped pair of pants, the booties with pointy noses and the turtleneck underneath complementing the rest of the outfit. There are the gorgeous leather pants, the leather belted tops with the plunging V necklines, the black pantsuits and the use of simpler fabrics.
And then there are the super sexy dresses, with the high slits on the thighs and the strategic cuts along the backs, the double slit pieces with added abdomen plunging necklines and leather detailing along one hip, the wraparound halters, alligator skin lapels on coatdresses, really short hemmed skirts, fringed designs and so much more. It is an amalgamation of intriguing looks, with all the top trends utilized. There are black pieces and white ones too, there are brick reds and leather, reptile skins and turtlenecks, long sleeves and midi skirts, wraparounds and fringes and even the use of leopard prints.
The leopard prints really deserve being talked about on their own. From gorgeous dresses with black translucent fabric helping balance out the print, falling to just above the knee in length, to leather trip skirts with yellow backgrounds and buttercup sweater pulled on top, extra large prints used on blouses in a three-piece pantsuit set, or played with while including different hues in the back, there is no way one cannot love the leopard style.
Then again, the best are the dresses, where the leopard print is on the translucent part itself, working to create panels in the pieces that effectively only enhance the silhouette of the woman wearing it out, elongating the chest and giving the hips a nicer A-line. One even appears with a mock halter top, which bares out the shoulders and gives them an even wider look. Effectively adding a touch of masculine to the overall feminine creation.
As for the fringed skirts, what can be better than looking the part of warrior princess, ready for battle with legs without hindrance due to dress? The open chests allow for the show off a good amount of cleavage, or it is fully covered up under swathes of leather. The look becomes a bit more like armor when given the brown tint instead, the material pulled out over the chest and the fringes doubled for extra effect. It is a look we can certainly see ourselves walking into comic con in though!
