H&M X Mugler Is Coming, And It's Going To Be Major. Here's What To Know

H&M has done it again. The fashion giant has recently announced that they are teaming up with the iconic fashion house Mugler for their latest collection. H&M is known for its high-end collaborations, having sold collections with Balmain, Commes de Garcons, and Simone Rocha. With this latest collection, expect Mugler to bring its most iconic silhouettes and styles to a store near you, which is great news for anyone getting started as a fashion collector.


Mugler has been worn by all of your favorite celebrities at one point, including Diana Ross, Cardi B, Kylie Jenner, and so much more. According to Show Studio, the brand was created by Thierry Mugler in 1973. His first women's collection "Café de Paris" was heavily inspired by how he viewed Parisian women. From there he was put on the map, steadily gaining traction over the years. While sadly Theirry Mugler died in January 2022, his brand is still doing amazing things, especially with this new collection on the horizon.

What to expect from H&M x Mugler

Fans of Mugler should rejoice, because the fashion house has plans to bring its iconic flavor to the major fast fashion brand. "The collection is a celebration of everything that defines Mugler as a house and each piece is authentic Mugler, from the bodysuits, which have become a signature of ours, to the sharp tailoring and worked denims. It is a showcase of our icons," explained creative director Casey Cadwallader (via License Global). The pieces in this collection will also include remade garments of the brand's archive looks from the 1980s and 1990s.


The collaboration has been a long time coming. Thierry Mugler originally worked with H&M on the collaboration before he died. Now Cadwallader has taken on the responsibility and is planning to give us something amazing. The line is set to include something for all genders, as well as fashion accessories that will still make a statement. The goal is to have a lot of what makes Mugler iconic with a contemporary twist.

Expect a colorful display

While they plan to bring some archival pieces, this H&M collaboration will be different from any other Mugler collaboration. Cadwallader explained to South China Morning Post that while he didn't want to water down the collection, he wanted to display a lot more color. The goal was to create playful energy with the clothing: "I really love the palette, and the fact that so many of the pieces are available in a great range of tones. I love the breadth of the collection, across men's and women's — it really offers people a lot of choice."


H&M's creative adviser Ann-Sofie Johansson also had a chance to reflect on the pieces in the collection and loves what they were able to create together. She teased that some of their upcoming spiral jeans which Casey took part in creating were among her favorites. The heavily anticipated collaboration will be available online and in stores on May 11.
