Paris - French label Thierry Mugler was channelling Miami Vice with a vibrant, '80's-inspired show on Friday aimed at men with attitude enough to wear pink.
Designer Rosemary Rodriguez delivered what she called a "bad boy in pastel colours", serving up slim, lightweight pantsuits in citron, lime and bubblegum shades for the label's spring-summer 2010 collection.
"It's about classics with a twist, preppy basics with pimpy touch, Miami Vice with an edge," she said in a pre-show interview.
Rodriguez, who was presenting her third menswear show for Mugler, paired sheer dress shirts in pastel polka dots with mix-matched linen and cotton separates. All looked crisp and eminently wearable.
Rodriguez's Mugler man was also sporty, clomping down the catwalk in oversized white basketball shoes with extra-tall tongues embellished with the brand's star logo.
Mugler, a mythic name in the 1980s, has struggled to find its footing since the departure of its founder and the subsequent closure and re-launch of the label.
The brand's managing director, Juan Penuela Vallejos, said he was confident in Mugler's ability to rise from the ashes - even given the current dismal outlook for retail fashion.
"The brand is coming back, slowly but surely," he said in a pre-show interview.
