Mugler Catwalk Fashion Show Paris FW2011
On Wednesday night we witnessed the rebirth of fashion label Thierry Mugler. Not only because the new creative director Nicole Formichetti debuted his first collection for the label. But also cause as of today the label is called just ‘Mugler’ (incl. a brand new logo).
Many came to witness Nicola Formichetti’s debut collection for Mugler, while Formichetti has been responsible for many of Lady Gaga’s looks (he was her stylist). Of course everyone was hoping the diva would turn up herself, but she was nowhere to be found. We did hear her brand new song playing during the fashion show, though. Gaga was even mentioned as the ‘musical director of this menswear project’ in Mugler’s show notes.
On his debut collection Formichetti worked together with Romain Kremer (who already worked for the brand before) and together they did one hell of a job. The show was full of daring menswear, like extremely wide and padded trousers, long (sometimes belted) jackets and tops revealing the mens’ bellies. Not to mention all the latex and the extreme tattoos, masks and make-up the models had on; very scary!
Shades of blue, black and olive green passed by as well as a bright orange color. Towards the end of the show the models wore some kind of transparent veils over their heads. It looked scary and crazy, but at least they had fun with it.
Now let’s hope Formichetti will be as successful at Mugler as he was with Gaga and the label is back in business!
