CQ First: Nicola Formichetti at the helm of Thierry Mugler
On the cusp of his menswear debut for Thierry Mugler, Nicola Formichetti has given a preview of what we can expect. With the help of his close pal, Lady Gaga, the stylist-turned-creative-director is gearing up to present his first collection at Paris Menswear Fashion Week. Set to the soundtrack of a special remix of Gaga's new track, the show will also be streamed live via the Mugler website. Formichetti tweeted an image of his menswear collection which is modelled by Rick Genest, the man who tattooed his body to appear like a human skeleton.
"I want people to think, 'OK, there's something new happening.' I want people to get excited again, not only fashion people," he said. "I'm not here to re-create what [Mugler] did. It was perfect for the time. I'm going to do something for today and the future,"
