Mugler Catwalk Fashion Show Paris SS2012
For his Mugler ss2012-collection Nicola Formichetti was inspired by a lot of stuff: the storytellers of Italian cinema, Fellini and Pasolini; Japanese comics; Herb Ritts and Bruce Weber; sport; Greek mythology. So Greek gods, muscled boys, and tattooed punks all appeared on the runway often spattered in glitter.
Despite all the show, the collection does have salable items: stonewashed skinny jeans, pleated shorts, T-shirts, swimwear. There was also a huge role for the color green, in the clothes as in the lightning – which represented the blood of the digital era, according to Formichetti. This sounds really like Thierry Mugler.
