Nicola Formichetti, the overly busy designer, stylist, editor, and overall fashion guru, has recently launched a handbag collection for Mugler. 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.
What I love about this collection, is the unanticipated mix of animal skins, giving the bags a distinct look and feel. I recently decided that I will only invest in one bag a season, being typically sucked into buying too many contemporary bags and wearing each only a few times. Having recently purchased a Reed Krakoff, I'm already thinking of my next must have bag, and I think an item from the Mugler collection may soon be in my closet.
