Nicola Formichetti, best known as fashion and creative director and collaborator for brands including Mugler, Uniqlo, and Lady Gaga, has teamed up with Gage/Clemenceau for the second in a series of concept stores. The collaboration was brought about by BOFFO Building Fashion 2012, a program that paired fashion designers with architects in a series of pop-up spaces. The first installation, in New York, featured a mirror-paneled ceiling and walls in kaleidoscopic crystalline formations, an ambitious and visually arresting space to showcase Formichettiâ€™s work.Â The new collaboration in Hong Kong houses a collection of original garments from the personal collection of Lady Gaga as well as Formichettiâ€™s own line and products from his new â€œNicopandaâ€ brand.
