Couture Collection F/W 97/98. Thierry Mugler's ANIMAL UNIVERSE (Smooth and sharp, grace and strength). "Insects have an armor-like body with a highly futuristic design. They are in tune with the times and this time is my realm of research."- Thierry Mugler.
Whitaker Auctions calls this a "wizard coat" because it has "exaggerated wizard sleeves." Wool, with those sleeves appliquéd in darker brown with black silk tassels, fur collar and cuff, contrasting faux button trim, and satin lining.
