This vintage Thierry Mugler jacket and skirt suit hails from the iconic designer's Fall 1992 runway collection— see a version of it on the runway below. Thierry Mugler and his work have been the subject of countless museum retrospective for a reason: he is responsible for defining the fashion landscape of the late 1980s and early 1990s, with his unabashedly feminine, sensual, borderline-campy perspective. This jacket is so exemplary of Mugler's inimitable style: it's made with the most beautiful construction, with many different pieces tailored together like a puzzle to create a very flattering fit. The exaggerated long lapels lead to a nipped waist, which gives way to a sculptural peplum— all Mugler hallmarks, which contribute to a very flattering hourglass shape. Shoulder pads subtly emphasize this shape. The snap closure at the waist is covered with a sculptural silver X (mirrored at each cuff) another signature of Mugler from this period. I love the matching pleated wrap skirt— in a sea of fitted pencil skirts from this era, this one really stands out. The drop-waist skirt has pleats beginning at the hips, with a box pleat in the center, and pleats fanning out in opposite directions from there. It has a wrap style, with three snaps closing the front panel, and a snap closure at the waistband. Each of these pieces is as beautiful worn separate as they are together. Made in France of 100% wool. Complete with the Thierry Mugler brand tag as well as the Bergdorf Goodman tag (retailer from which it was purchased). Jacket is fully lined.

This piece is from the collection of a renown couture collector, who focused on collecting the very best of the best through the 1980s-1990s. 

The jacket was shown with a different skirt on the Fall 1992 runway.
