Taking Fashion At Face Value
Animal prints have become so popular that department store racks are starting to resemble petting zoos. Lately, though, we’ve been noticing a new novelty trend: faces. Some designers have taken visages in cartoony directions. Sophia Kokosalaki put a pop art depiction of a girl in tears on the Diesel Black Gold runway back in February, while Mugler‘s Nicola Formichetti and Sébastien Peigné collaborated with illustrator Mel Odom on the kissing image in their new Resort collection. Others spotlighted more familiar faces. Marc Jacobs commissioned his pal Elizabeth Peyton to immortalize him on a collector’s item sweatshirt for his Marc by Marc line. Rihanna paid tribute to Elizabeth Taylor by wearing a Topshop Unique look, and model Sean O’Pry, perhaps looking for a job, wore a T-shirt with the photographer David Sims on it while off-duty at the menswear collections.
