It has been said After two years as the man in charge at Parisian fashion house Mugler, the Italian designer will take on a new role being creative director role at Diesel. Known for this futuristic aesthetic on menswear and as Lady Gaga‘s stylist, the designer might have been a fan of the occasional outlandish touch but never strayed far from his signature: minimalistic, sleek and above all wearable tailoring with flashes of neon. He will now be teaming up  with creative director and founder of Diesel, Renzo Rosso.

At this stage we can only speculate what they’ve got in store, but here’s hoping he brings some of his trademark twisted sensibilities to the brand.Indeed there will be speculation of the direction the brand will be in upcoming months. With Formichetti on board, I would believe to Formichetti is gonna take a direction we will not expect. “We’re going to Reboot! Hit refresh,” says the designer “We’re ripping apart everything to re-build something bigger.” Diesel is willing to “empty their cup” in order to grow larger and stronger!
With that being said, I am thrilled to see what is in store for Diesel. Sometimes whenever we want to grow, we must empty our cup (reboot in other words). It doesn’t mean you will not retain everything you learn, but what is truly needed!

Mugler


The French fashion house, Mugler (formerly known as Thierry Mugler) under the creative direction of Nicola Formichetti demonstrates some form of contrast with these looks.

I must admit this would be a shocker to many people, but artistically I love it! The tattoos provides an extreme tone to accentuate the contrast. Naturally ink is an accessory; however, they are not a distraction towards to clothing at all. Rick Genest, the model presented in the editorial, certainly doesn’t have make an effort to stand out from the crowd!

Edgy meets contemporay fashion with clean lines. Being the stylist for Lady Gaga, I am more than confident he will become a great asset for Mugler!
