First Look: Nicola Formichetti Mugler’s Handbag Collection
Nicola Formichetti, may not be a household name but his sartorial choices as Lady Gaga‘s stylist has earned him some street-cred among fashion insiders. In addition to working with the musician, Formichetti has been busy designing.
Come February, his debut 30-piece handbag collection for Mugler will hit stores. Of the addition he says:
This is now my 4th collection as creative director of Mugler, and following the evolution of the brand, I was interested in creating sculptured objects in 3D, a piece of the Mugler world that one can carry around, an element that completes the look.”
Expected to retail between $1,050 and $18,000, the pieces are luxurious in appearance. Their designs are sophisticated, channeling some inner confidence. Naturally, we are lusting for the bags which will be available at Barney’s New York, Maxfield, Opening Ceremony, Patron of the New, and Joan Shepp, and online at Shopbop and Moda Operandi.
