Man he moves fast. It’s official: Nicola Formichetti is the new artistic director at Diesel.
Just one day after it was announced that Nicola Formichetti would be parting ways with Thierry Mugler, word on the street is that the powerhouse stylist has already found himself a new label to head up. And this time, he’s going global.
Today it was announced that, after two years at the helm, Nicola Formichetti is parting ways with the house of Thierry Mugler. Tear. As for what’s next for the French house, a statement from the company indicates that they’ll be releasing a plan soon “that builds on its highly successful legacy in fragrance and its new momentum in fashion.” Until then, however, let’s reminisce over what the last two years have brought us in the fantastical, futuristic world of Formichetti’s Mugler.
Nicola Formichetti debuted his jewelry collaboration with Alexis Bittar this afternoon in Paris at the Mugler fall 2013 show, and we’ve got a preview right here.
Taylor Swift may have nabbed the cover, but Kim Kardashian co-stars in the March issue of ELLE. Unfortunately for Kim, it sounds like stylist Nicola Formichetti didn’t have the easiest time pulling clothes for reality star.
Kim Kardashian and Mugler creative director/heavyweight stylist Nicola Formichetti got together for a photo shoot a couple of weeks ago, which we know thanks to the message Kim posted on video sharing site Keek. But what top secret project they were working on?
Until now, Nicola Formichetti has stayed away from designing bags for Mugler. In his fourth collection for the label, set to show during Paris Fashion Week on September 6, the 35-year-old designer is reportedly sending out designs from his new handbag collection.
Back in February, Nicola Formichetti told us he was working on a music video for Azealia Banks‘s song “Liquorice”. While it turns out he didn’t direct it (those honors went to Rankin), Formichetti did the style the clip — and we’ve catalogued every single look.
As if Nicola Formichetti wasn’t busy enough at Mugler, Haus of Gaga, Uniqlo, and Vogue Hommes Japan, he’s also designing a new line of high-tech apparel set to launch online in mid-2013.
Nicola Formichetti is livestreaming all of his prep for Wednesday’s Mugler show, and he’s invited us (and you!) along for the ride.
We love seeing designers supporting their designer friends in the front row during Fashion Week. Today we spotted Nicola Formichetti at the Richard Chai show, so we decided to chat him up about his very first NYFW show ever, his plans for the week, and Azealia Banks.
Get to know the 20-year-old Harlem rapper Karl can’t get enough of.
Justin Bieber‘s V Magazine cover doesn’t hit newsstands until Thursday, but Nicola Formichetti has leaked the cover (and what is very possibly the entire spread) on his website.
The holiday season is officially upon us, and Barneys knows just where you want to shop: Gaga’s Workshop.
Oh. My. Gaga. When Barneys announced that it would be collaborating with Lady Gaga on a holiday campaign and shopping space, we had no idea that it would be as high-concept as it’s turned out to be. But rest assured: Gaga’s Workshop is going to be one of the coolest seasonal shopping experiences ever.
If good artists borrow and great artists steal, Lady Gaga must be a truly great artist. In a new video for MAC‘s Viva Glam campaign, the Mother Monster admits that some of her best looks come right off the faces of her fans.
Have you ever wondered about Nicola Formichetti‘s grooming routine? All of your questions have been answered!
This was the week Duchess Catherine returned! This was also the week of many fashion show missteps — Tom Ford, Nicola Formichetti, and Kanye West all got horrible runway reviews. Scott Schuman made us really mad, and Ryan Gosling made us really happy, but Fashimals changed our lives forever.
He may be one of the nicest people we’ve ever sat on a stoop and smoked with, but being friendly hasn’t made Nicola Formichetti an acclaimed designer. In fact, his Mugler women’s show in Paris yesterday has gotten some of the most lackluster reviews we’ve seen all fashion month.
