Recently, Coachella Festival style has been questionable at best, falling foul of Influencer-fast-fashion-spon post hell, but if there is one person who we trust to do festival-fashion correctly, it’s Bad Bunny. The Puerto Rican artist is known for having fun and experimenting with how he dresses is, for us, all swings and no misses. This weekend was another home run, as he headlined the second weekend of Coachella, stepping out on stage in head-to-toe Mugler by Casey Cadwallader. Bad Bunny’s style is the modern day version of some of the monoliths of music, such as Bowie and Prince, who effortless fuse fluid fashion with overwhelming sex appeal. The Mugler pieces wore were expertly crafted by Casey Cadwallader, and managed to straddle simple chic with oh-so-sexy showmanship.
For his opening performance, the ‘Tití Me Pregunitó’ singer wore an all black custom-made leather jacket hoodie and corset, with matching trousers, styled by Storm Pablo and Marvin Douglas, that turned the heat up in the desert, with transparent panels on the corset and trouser legs that were such a tease.
For his second look, Bad Bunny went from the super constricted corset to Y2K oversized double denim, with Cadawallader creating a blue signature spiral baggy jeans with a matching denim shirt that was giving us JT and Britney at the 2001 American Music Awards in the best way. Not one for doing things by halves, BB’s outfit was completed with cowboy boots, a big and beefy buckle belt, a fist full of necklaces and a cowboy hat. Mugler by Casey Cadwaller straddled Bad Bunny’s style perfectly, allowing Bad Bunny to breath (well maybe not literally, being in a corset, and all) with touches of sex appeal and the element of dressing-up that are all needed for a star like him to shine on stage. Bonus points for the musician publicly apologising to Harry Styles for a tweet apparently shading the Watermelon Sugar singer, during his set the weekend prior, saying he was a mistake by his team that he did not personally approve. We love an apologetic king, especially one who can dress so f**king well.
