Related Links: Hidden Faces


Get ready for a chin scratcher, guys. This week in fashion news we’ve spotted a peculiar pattern: hidden faces. Are we on the brink of a lasting trend? Or is this a curious coincidence?

SBTRKT’s “Terminal”
British producer SBTRKT dropped a new track entitled “Terminals” this week. He’s an artist given to anonymity, so you might recognize him onstage wearing modern interpretations of native ceremonial masks. But the REAL upshot here is that homeboy doesn’t have to think twice about a Halloween costume.

Ivanow’s “Surreal World”
In New York Mag’s latest edition of the Out of the Box photography series, Martina Hoogland Ivanow layers Oscar de la Renta and Stella McCartney in luscious fall looks of cloth, brocade and crewel. BUT, lo and behold, sprouting from the heads of her models are bushes and flowers. Can you say luxury Chia Pet?!

Sneak Peak: Margiela for H&M
Early this summer, we gushed about the forthcoming collaboration between H&M and luxury brand Maison Martin Margiela. And this week, a teensy-tinsy behind-the-scenes picture gave us a teaser of what’s to come. With Margiela’s ultra-discreet trademark (Imeanreallydoe, models swept the runway in beaded masks for Couture 2012) we wonder if faces will be covered in the H&M collection presentation? We’re taking bets!

Alexander McQueen at Paris Fashion Week
Alexander McQueen’s creative director Sarah Burton exploded the Paris Fashion Week finale with cylindrical mesh headpieces inspired by beekeeper masks. Suffice it to say, the fashion house is celebrating a much buzzed-about collection.

Anne Hathaway’s Bridal Headpiece
Anne Hathaway made headlines this week with her whimsical and (a-DUH) custom Valentino wedding gown. Slightly more perplexing, though, is the floral headpiece that tops off her bridal look. We can’t help but wishhh her blissful face was free of fabric that, forgive us, is slightly reminiscent of a head-wound bandage. What do you think?
