In the slipstream of Nicola Formichetti's #Fantasia issue and week long Dazed Digital takeover, the globe-trotting superstylist and Mugler creative director combines lens with pen in a special online editorial.
"The shoot is a Nicopanda and Mugler mash-up," Formchetti explains. "I do these illustrations for my brand Nicopanda and come up with new characters everyday. This one's called "Chetti" and it's an amoeba-panda! It's a virus affecting the Mugler world, I wanted to do a shoot where Mugler and Nicopanda got mixed up, two completely different worlds living in the same dimension."
