In case you didn’t know, the discussion for this collaboration began before the passing of Manfred Thierry Mugler in 2022. 

Taken from a statement, Cadwallader expressed, “It is truly an honour to collaborate with H&M. 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 denim. It is a showcase of our icons.”

“We are proud to celebrate the legacy of Manfred Thierry Mugler with this collection. We were all honoured to get to know Manfred, and it feels very special that he was involved at the initial stages together with Casey and the house of Mugler. Casey has done such an incredible job at paying homage to history and to the archive while making the collection totally contemporary. Under him, Mugler has become one of the most innovative and exciting houses on today’s fashion landscape,” says Ann-Sofie Johansson, creative advisor at H&M
