Having covered the recent Fall/Winter 2011 collection from Mugler quite extensively, we now get more of a personal take on the collection through creative director Nicola Formichetti. Amongst other topics we learn a bit more about the recent show and apparel designs, of course created with avant-garde menswear designer Romain Kremer, who along with Formichetti, make up the creative duo behind Mugler. An excerpt from the interview is offered below.

Talk me through the inspiration for the show…

I went through the archives and took all the things I liked and did a styling session with stuff from 1992, 1987 etc…

So what did you pick from these years?

I saw them in a very abstract way, and made it into rubbers and pearls…

There was a clear dark and moody angle to the clothes though…

A little bit yes, because it was to do with death, re-birth, anatomy and the evolution of clothes.

You mention rubber, there was quite a lot of synthetic materials in there…

Ah yeah totally, it is so Mugler to use non-conventional fabrics. He was using it back then and it still feels very fresh for me. There’s always a twist towards streetwear and the undergorund scene.

Do you have a favourite piece?

I liked them all, but for me it was more about the people, like Riko with the tattoos. He gave himself the skull tattoo as a birthday present when he was 20, he’s great…

The interview in its entirety is available here.
