Manfred Mania

Thierry (Manfred) Mugler was one of the most recognizable style icons of the 90's. His futuristic barbie power goddess aesthetic lured in some of the most amazing women of the day, including Rebecca Romijn and Jerry Hall. This specific dress is very similar to a dress/jacket set that Mr. Mugler designed for Jerry Hall that we had several years ago pictured above.

This dress is in the chinoiserie (chinese-esque) style. The combination Mandarin collar and abrupt short sleeve with black lacquer buttons is a classically Chinese combination. The use of black lace over oyster silk satin gives the whole piece a very elegant futuristic appeal.

Thierry Mugler Chinoiserie oyster and black lace dress, c.90's. Contemporary size 4.
