Fashion Bite: Nicola Formichetti Out At Mugler
April 2, 2013 § Leave a comment
The fashion design door has been put to good use lately, with designers and creative directors moving in and out of their respective companies.
The latest designer leaving their luxury label is Nicola Formichetti of Mugler. Formichetti served as the creative director for men’s and women’s collections for two and a half years.
According to The Cut, Joel Palix, president of Clarins Fragrance Group and director general of Mugler, said in a statement: “With his talent for communication and understanding modern imagery and design, Nicola has been instrumental in attracting a new audience which is undeniably crucial for the future strategy of the house. He will be a historical part of the Mugler legacy and known as the force that catapulted us forward.”
Formichetti, who also served as Lady Gaga’s creative director, completely transformed the legendery French label into what some may call a travesty. The designer is obviously talented, but his creative direction was never the right fit for Mugler.
Let’s see where his career will take off next.
