That's a pretty ominous sign.
I agree. My guess is that womanity didn't reach Angelic proportions, and the A*Men flankermania (somewhat desperate in itself) is petering out. When the money's not there, people take action.
This is probably good for the brand, and even good for Mugler himself. I'm sure that they can bring in a creative director who "gets" Mugler, but can bring stability and business savvy, and who can temper Mugler's eccentricity with some realism.
