The last few years has seen Nicola Formichetti become extremely hot property in Fashion. On top of his vastly impressive portfolio he is currently Fashion Director for Vogue Hommes Japan, Uni-Qlo and, most publicly, Lady GaGa. But it wasn't until a few months ago that he was presented with the position of Creative Director at Thierry Mugler.

He debuted his first show on Wednesday in Paris and definitely didn't disappoint. His distinctive trademarks are evident in the heavily styled looks. This and some of the oversized tailoring and silhouettes came together for a very fresh and bold collection that I’m sure will do wonders for the brand.

McQueen A/W11

The spirit of McQueen lives on through a truly exceptional menswear catwalk show in Milan earlier today. Creative Director Sarah Burton has kept the tailoring crisp and contemporary and integrated intense flashes of red to an otherwise subdued colour palette. Definitely the most accomplished collection of AW11 so far.

An utterly fragile and beautiful track taken from Björk's 2001 album Vespertine. Has formed a big part of my playlist so far this year.
