Mugler Launches Bags, Nicola Formichetti Draws Pandas on 'Em, Invites Everyone to the Show
(Nicola Formichetti Instagram) The new Mugler "Naboo" handbag
Mugler creative director Nicola Formichetti will unveil his first handbag collection for the legendary French fashion house later today, at the spring 2013 Mugler show at Paris Fashion Week—and if you want to see the bags, oh hey, why not stop by the show yourself?
Formichetti broke the cardinal rule of fashion industry insidery-ness and not only tweeted the location and time of tonight's show, but also a public invite:
Who knows what's going to happen this evening in Paris! Maybe a Mugler stampede?
If you're not in Paris right now (or don't feel like crashing the show), you can still sneak peek the new Mugler handbags—we've culled some of the photos from Formichetti's Twitter feed right here.
There's this structured, tailored satchel, called "Agent Mugler" -
Here's "Naboo" again, in silhouette:
The "Agent Mugler" again, in silhouette—we love the padlock hardware details at the top and the compact, boxy shape:
And then Nicola Formichetti drew pandas all over one of his new bags (we wonder if it will be available in stores this way! So cute!):
So now we have a couple of questions for you—1. What do you think of the new Mugler bags? and 2. Will you be crashing the Mugler show at Paris Fashion Week?
