The Leather Collection by Thierry Mugler
Angel, Alien, Womanity with exclusive leather bracelets
Three new anniversary editions to celebrate 20 years of perfumery
steeped in emotion
2012. Twenty years after the launch of Angel, his first major fragrance for women, Thierry Mugler celebrates the passion and innovation that characterize his perfumes.
For the holiday season, the brand pays tribute to one of its creator’s favorite materials and offers a festive collection inspired by the intricacies and intimacies of leather: the Angel, Alien and Womanity Leather Collection. Thierry Mugler crafts the material and fashions it into uniquely beautiful accessories; leather embracing the bottles of three great feminine fragrances to create three limited Leather Collector editions:
- Angel: the star bottle is enhanced with a unique “double wrap” bracelet in matte black nubuck leather. Slipped around the wrist, and adapting perfectly to its size, the accessory adorned with the legendary silver metal asymmetric star, adds an unmistakable touch of sophistication and glamour… like the iconic gourmand and voluptuous eau de parfum.
- Alien’s amethyst bottle is adorned with a smooth, purple leather jeweled bracelet. Illuminated with patina-covered gilt metal bars, it adjusts to every wrist with its chain clasp. Decorated with an amethyst- hued, facetted glass stone, the scent cloaks the skin in magic and mystery to echo Alien’s luminous amber woody floral notes.
- Womanity’s totem bottle is enriched with a new rock-inspired tie: an adjustable grey nubuck leather bracelet set off with silver metal bars; it is embellished with a chain, the line’s strong symbol evoking solidarity and the bond between women. A unique design created for all women, like Womanity’s woody, sweet and savory eau de parfum.
Three limited editions available from October 2012:
-Angel Leather Collection, Eau de Parfum, 25 mL and 50 mL
-Alien Leather Collection, Eau de Parfum, 30 mL and 60 mL
-Womanity Leather Collection, Eau de Parfum, 50 mL
