The house of Thierry Mugler, which is owned by Clarins, has signed a licensing deal to create a new line of Mugler-branded men's wear. The previous incarnation of Thierry Mugler men's was manufactured in Italy by the Tombolini Group; the new line will be manufactured in Italy by the Inghirami company. The first collection will arrive in stores this fall. No news yet on whether there will be sizes to accommodate the likes of Manfred, Thierry Mugler's alter-ago (right—for the record, we will never grow tired of publishing this photo).
