Booty Call: Gaga’s Backside Inspires Mugler Bags

-------

Few know how to create buzz around their runway shows via social media better than Mugler designer Nicola Formichetti. Just this morning, he tweeted, “This is ‘Monster X’ inspired by gaga’s great ass. For tonight’s @ Cité de l’Architecture et du Patrimoine.” Handbags inspired by Gaga’s derriere? Absolutely. (The pop star, however, reportedly didn’t know her backside was the launching pad for the new leather goods.) Tonight at his Paris show, Formichetti will debut his first collection of bags for Mugler, which is series of 30 styles ranging from “structured, ladylike day bags” to “weaponlike evening clutches,” according to WWD. The bags, $900 to $1,550, come in materials like metallic lizard and stamped calf leather. Here, an early look at one of the designs.
