With Nicola Formichetti’s abrupt exit from Mugler, and the recent announcement that Thierry Mugler himself (who now goes by his first name Manfred) will be the new creative advisor for the brand, we’ve been curious as to what their next big move would be. Forget that the label is still in search of a creative director, it seems that attention is now focused on reinventing the cabaret revue.
Man he moves fast. It’s official: Nicola Formichetti is the new artistic director at Diesel.
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.
Fragrance reviews are silly, but sometimes, fragrance marketing is even sillier. What do “playful pastimes” and “nostalgia” really smell like? So from now on, we’ll be crowdsourcing our own fragrance reviews. Read on to find out what our office thought about the latest sample to land on our desk. This week, we’re sniffing ANGEL Aqua Chic by Thierry Mugler.
In an unsurprising turn of events, Thierry Mugler has dropped disgraced Paralympian Oscar Pistorius as a spokesman, while Nike has suspended his contract pending the court’s decision.
Oscar Pistorius, the first-ever double amputee to run in the Olympics and the face of Thierry Mugler‘s A*Men fragrance, has been charged with murder in the shooting death of his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.
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.
Fragrance reviews are silly. Fragrance marketing is even sillier. So from now on, we’ll be crowdsourcing our fragrance reviews. Read on to find out what our office thought about the latest sample to land on our desk. This week, we’re taking a pass at Thierry Mugler‘s first scent for dudes.
This week we got details on Kate Moss‘s imminent nuptials, saw Nicola Formichetti‘s X-rated video (and fanzine!), and found out about Justin Bieber‘s Kelly Kapowski obsession. Also, Naomi Campbell‘s Fiorucci collection was revealed and lots of weird things happened on airlines. Oh, and Versace for H&M!
We know, we know — we’re still looking at that headline in disbelief, too. But Nancy Pelosi, the former Speaker of the House who lets her husband pick out her clothes, won some major style points when she showed up to last night’s state dinner for German Chancellor Angela Merkel in a “very old” two-piece ensemble from crazy pants designer Thierry Mugler.
We knew Nicola Formichetti found Rick Genest (also known as Zombie Boy or Rico) on Facebook, but the rest of his origin story was pretty mysterious until now. In an illuminating interview with Hint Magazine, Formichetti opens up about finding his muse.
It’s not surprising that Rick Genest (also known as Zombie Boy) is the star of the fall 2011 Mugler men’s campaign, but we still love the resulting images. Just don’t be alarmed if they look familiar.
Nicola Formichetti has lead a pretty creative revamping of Thierry Mugler since he took over the brand last fall. He changed its name to Mugler, hired Lady Gaga as his musical director and staged a men’s show that earned a standing ovation and left more than a few people scratching their heads. And now we’ve got the details on his women’s show.
Thierry Mugler isn’t a brand known for following traditions, so when the time came to find a guy to be the face of its A*Men cologne, no model or ordinary celebrity would do. Instead, Mugler tapped Oscar Pistorius, a South African sprinter. Who is also a double-leg amputee.
The Golden Globes may have dominated this week, but Oscar de la Renta, Anna Wintour and Justin Bieber also made some headlines. Plus, the model who hit that lady is getting a reality show and the Bill Cunningham documentary looks incredible.
