PARIS (AP) - Paris-based fashion house Thierry Mugler has tapped Lady Gaga’s stylist, Nicola Formichetti, as creative director for its women’s and menswear labels.

The label said in a statement Monday that Formichetti, who is also fashion director with Vogue Hommes Japan, is to begin with the fall-winter 2011-2012 collections.

Formichetti, a half-Japanese, half-Italian 33-year-old, replaces Spaniard Rosemary Rodriguez.

Formichetti will oversee Mugler’s head women’s designer Sebastien Peigne, formerly of Balenciaga, and head menswear designer Romain Kremer, who also designs his own signature label.

“We were looking for a young talent who could really bring new energy to the brand,” the statement quoted the brand’s director general, Joel Palix, as saying.
