>> After five years of nothing, Thierry Mugler womenswear is ripe for revival. A capsule collection, dubbed Thierry Mugler Edition, will be presented next week, as designed by Rosemary Rodriguez, who worked closely with Mugler from 1994 to 1999.
The revival was prompted by growing demand (see Naomi Watts' and Caroline Trentini's Costume Institute Gala dresses, left) and by the resurgence of Mugler shapes in other designers' work. Emphasis is now being placed on retaining but also modernizing the sharp-shouldered Mugler silhouette.
Meanwhile, Thierry himself is still acting as artistic director for the house's beauty lines . . .
