Maison Martin Margiela Masks: Faceless

Maison Martin Margiela backstage

The Haute Couture Collection F/W'12 by Maison Martin Margiela obssesed me, so I couldn't help myself to not write something about it. The entire collection is so perfectly on my style ... it looks like they know my personality and guess every my extravagantza desires. I've started in the past timidly to wear some lace bands face just to get used with the strange idea of having an adorned head. ... (I've wrote about it on my blog).
If some women wear all kind of hats, I prefere this sophysticated mask which has an extraordinary visual impact. Margiela's mask are so elegant emballished with shimmering crystals.
Mask face has an extensive interpretations of ambiguous symbolism. On the one hand the mask can disguise the identity of the person who wear it, keeping him anonymous (for protection or to hide the misleading apparents) ... to me is a lake of sincerity but with a note of mystery... and on the other hand the mask can express  a rule of character associated with modern heroes (Zorro, Batman, Catwoman or Spiderman). As a decorative pieces, the mask are known in ancient times as mortuary masks painted in natural colours or covered with gold foils. African tribal masks inspired many artists like Piccaso.
Venice is associated with theatrical masks which is famous for.
While in fashion masks are art ... or pure fashion ... or a little bit of both ... which hide the face to give it an aesthetic value.
