Nicola Formichetti Exits Thierry Mugler
According to WWD, Nicola Formichetti has parted ways with Thierry Mugler "by mutual agreement" after holding his post there for two years as creative director of both men's and women's lines.
"With his talent for communication and understanding modern imagery and design, Nicola has been instrumental in attracting a new audience which is undeniably crucial for the future strategy of the house. He will be a historical part of the Mugler legacy and known as the force that catapulted us forward," Joel Palix, president of Clarins Fragrance Group and director general of Mugler, said in a statement.
There is no word yet from Formichetti, whose close relationship with Lady Gaga helped to garner attention for the brand's shows, as she not only contributed towards their soundtracks but also walked in them. Formichetti also serves as the creative director for Haus of Gaga.
As for Mugler, WWD quotes Palix as stating that the company plans "[to build] on its highly successful legacy in fragrance and its new momentum in fashion."
