After his first year at Mugler, Casey Cadwallader proved he has absorbed the brand’s essence by teaming architectural volume with a more personal taste for prints and fabrics. The result was a dynamic collection built on asymmetry, flounces, ruches and draping but also decorations, which were abstract motifs the designer described as “herbal”. In fact, some patterns were inspired by images of Murano glass and others by an Italian terrace, but they were all lively and colourful with an optical touch. They featured on tops, high-waist trousers, dresses or as trimmings to emphasise the silhouette, and even on the thigh-high boots, blending into the rest of the look. Tailored jackets were tight and broad in the shoulder to emphasise the curves.
