The men’s shows usually don’t get nearly as much attention as the women’s shows, even though they’re terribly fun and offer unrivaled thrills relating to short shorts, crop tops, and sparkles. But stylist Nicola Formichetti’s debut as the creative director of Thierry Mugler already has good buzz, owing to quite the smart PR strategy that involves rolling out images to tease the collection in the days leading up to Wednesday’s show, and because Formichetti also holds the fortuitous job title of Lady Gaga’s stylist, and she will use her artistry to help his career along, as his work has done for her. Formichetti told WWD that Gaga will be the “musical director” for his show; she will reportedly premiere in the soundtrack a remix of a brand new track from her album coming out in May, which gives the week all-new meaning. Unicorn watch starts now.
