Why an aquatic theme for Nicola Formichetti?

He and men’s wear designer Romain Kremer brought in a new tailoring team and honed in on fundamentals — jackets, pants and shirts — “without being too extreme,” as Formichetti put it. Although the gill-like slashes and jutting fins were outré, his suits had a taut, muscular presence. And the theme worked swimmingly for graphic scuba tops and a sleek trenchcoats in sea foam green or oil-slick black.
