With Nicola Formichetti’s abrupt exit from Mugler, and the announcement that Thierry Mugler himself (who now goes by his first name Manfred) will be the new creative advisor for the brand, we’ve been curious as to what their next big move would be. Forget that the label is still in search of a creative director, it seems that attention is now focused on reinventing the cabaret revue.

In December, the French fashion house will launch its own cabaret show, “Mugler Follies,” at the Théâtre Comédia in Paris. The production promises to be an interesting blend of two Mugler signatures, sci-fi and glamor, and will feature an original score, as well as an array of dancers, singers, and high-flying acrobats.

“It tends homage to the human beauty and all its talents,” explains Mugler on the Follies website. “It must be visual and very sensory, combining a huge content of eroticism to its sophistication.”

According to WWD, word around town is that Balmain designer Laurent Mercier’s cross-dressing alter ego, Lola, will be in the mix of performers. Consider our fingers crossed.

Mugler stages the story of a young woman in search for her inner balance. As a result of her unpredictable and unusual encounters, she not only discovers herself but also transforms into a sublime and blooming woman. For this production, Manfred Mugler revisits the Revue, an artistic expression that gives him the greatest freedom. It allows him to display all of his follies, boldness and all forms of metamorphoses on stage.

A show rich in creativity, Mugler combines joy with eroticism, magic with high technology, lights with transformation, and transports the public into a swirl of emotions. Each number gives the opportunity to travel from one universe to another, with musical rhythms and original songs composed specifically for each act.

The casting is judicious; artists are dancers and acrobats, singers and comedians, models and performers. Mugler is delighted; he suggests step-by-step different facets of beauty. Far from a still image, Manfred Thierry Mugler extols diversity in a visionary show that reinvents the cabaret / Revue.
