One of the most popular aspects of any runway show Nicola Formichetti puts together is his ability to comission exclusive music for the theme song.
In the past, the fashion director has worked with the likes of Lady Gaga, Azealia Banks, pianist Ryuichi Sakamoto.
And at this week’s Paris Men’s Fashion Week, it was G-Dragon providing all-new work for Formichetti’s Mulger Fall/Winter 2013 collection show.
“G-Dragon was the perfect choice,” Formichetti told IdolWow! before the January 16 show. “I had wanted to collaborate with him for some time…. We met via friends in common and that’s how it came together.
“We had the song playing the whole time [at Mugler] to create the looks and feel.”
The song itself fit in perfectly with the feel of the show, an electro sci-fi vibe that was also visible in the bright fluorescent-colored outfits created with manmade materials.
Although G-Dragon was no where to be seen in the front row of the show, he is in Paris for fashion week and meetings.
Formichetti today posted the track, titled “I Am Mugler”, on Twitter for all to hear.
