Formichetti’s Gaga-Inspired Handbags

Nicola Formichetti and his muse

*Cue the anticipation. Just a few days into 2013 and someone is set to offer up a new handbag collection that is sure to be labeled the next “It” accessory line.

According to WWD, luxe label Mugler’s creative director Nicola Formichetti is prepping the debut of a spring/summer 2013 handbag line said to be inspired by Lady Gaga’s (Formichetti’s BFF, natch) backside.

You heard us right. The designer told the fashion tome that he modeled the line off of Gaga’s lower curves, but the pop star “didn’t know it yet.” We’re pretty sure she does now. And it seems her glorious derriere calls to mind an exotic array of embossed leathers — metallic, croc, etc… — ranging in price from $900 to $1,550.

This spring/summer 2013 collection of handbags are expected to hit the shelves later this month, so keep those eagle eyes poised for more Gaga/Formichetti photo-ops. We’re sure they’re coming.
