Nicolas Ghesquière to Take Over at Mugler?

The game of designer musical chairs continues today with an announcement that Nicola Formichetti is to part ways with Mugler, and rumors are already swirling that he's in talks with Diesel to take up a position with them instead. A Mugler director commented on Nicola's departure from the label:
“Nicola has accomplished our original mission of bringing his energy to the brand, with his talent for communication and understanding modern imagery and design, Nicola has been instrumental in attracting a new audience which is undeniably crucial for the future strategy of the house. He will be a historical part of the Mugler legacy and known as the force that catapulted us forward.”

With Balenciaga's former creative director Nicolas Ghesquière still out of a job for now, it seems like he might be a perfect fit for the growing Mugler label, after all, his work at Balenciaga proved he can easily conquer the most challenging silhouettes and his work has always had a similarity to that displayed by the Mugler label. Is it just too perfect?

According to recent reports,  Ghesquière is currently working on his own label quietly and is discussing financial backing with several big luxury companies, but if those reports are true, he could still find the time to balance a job at Mugler too. Watch this space for updates!
