INSIDE 10: NICOLA FORMICHETTI
It’s been a strange year for fashion, to say the least. The men we’re used to seeing at shows, press appointments and late-night fashion-week parties have been confined to their humble abodes. So, for the inaugural Inside 10, we stepped into the homes of some of the industry’s most adored gentlemen – on a quest to discover how they really live. Expect lavish art, fancy sofas and, of course, handsome looks pulled from the SS21 collections. Next up is Nicola Formichetti, creative director of Nicopanda and Lady Gaga's fashion director.
What’s your most prized possession in your home?
“My art collection – I live in an art gallery, lol. I have been collecting throughout my career different pieces of sculpture, photographs and drawings. Especially the first piece I ever bought, by Robert Mapplethorpe. I remember buying that with my first big cheque and it’s been with me ever since.”
What dream item would make your home all that more special?
“For the moment, I am living in my dream house. So not much, other than maybe more art.”
What’s the key to keeping your humble abode a happy one?
“Keeping it clean and zen-like. I like to be surrounded by nature and light always. Also – how could I forget? – my best buddy, my Pomeranian puppy Oreo.”
