Lace Face Off

>> I think I may have embarrassingly pressed my face against the windows at Liberty today breathing onto the glass, whilst cooing "Ooooh… lacey facey…".  It's a good thing that Liberty tends to be security guard-lite otherwise he would have had to file some kind of complaint for window display infringement.  I might harrass the peeps at Liberty to see if I can put a name to this beautiful handiwork or was it that someone simply diligently cut into a doilie mat. 

The cause for all this lacework as well as the background sets is of course to welcome in the new S/S 11 collections full of pleats, textures and terracota and cinnamon hues as well as a slew of accessories from the likes of Proenza Schouler and Chloe that has me doing more window breath panting.  Not a pretty sight by the time you get to the far right window by the corner entrance to the department store.  Again, grateful for the absence of a stern looking security guard…

  3. Nice facewear?…I figured this was the most appropriate way to format this gear of clothing; although now that i’m re-reading this…it does sound slighlty weird on account of the images that sprint into my head momentraily as im speaking my words out loud; a mixture of footwear, clothing and accessorys just seemed to dangle from my face..hhmmmm, i think i better get some rest. Great post zzzzzoughh. X Neda X

  4. I saw these last night and sadly didn’t have a camera with me.
    While my friend instantly deemed them unwearable (at least, if one is at all inclined to talk), I couldn’t help admiring how delicate they seemed to be.
    Beautiful pictures πŸ™‚

  5. The windows themselves are so life like that the lace face masks are a little intimidating but lovely as well.

  6. So beautiful and delicate! I am in love with that black open weave onesie….oh the things I would do for it!! It’s interesting how the addition of “facewear” (as Neda put it) actually enhances the clothes rather than detracting attention from them.

  7. i love all the pieces, kind of gaga-esque even though it sounds banal

  12. Is it only me that finds them a tad scary? Like some kind of medieval device for keeping wives quiet…

  13. Check out the lacefaces at the Museum of London… I heard Philip Treacy designed his for an installation there!

  14. as a visual merchandiser decorating windows I feel a pang of jealousy seeing the georgous mannequins!!!

  15. Facewear the next new thing..? Certainly better than wearing a balaclava to cover your face!

  16. Hehe…love all the visceral love/hate reactions to them…. I think that’s why they’re so effective, when paired with what are quite muted clothes and bags…
    Neda: I like the term facewear! Could be applied to masks as well…
    Joy: Yup, the mannequins faces were quite real looking!
    Perdita: There definitely is something spooky about itβ€šΓ„ΒΆ it would be more freaky if the mouths were covered by the lace, silencing sound…
    Ellio100: I didn’t even see that! I will check it out!

  17. This lace face is looks like a symbol of modeling fear but I will not fear by this model because she is looking so beautiful.
