Trend Report: Face Masks

March 02, 2012

Not sure what designers think we have to hide, but with yesterday's Rick Owens show (pictured above) as final confirmation, shrouding of the face behind a mask or an oversized hat or too many scarves is officially a trend this year in fashion. We don't even want to get into the psychological implications of face-covering entering the zeitgeist or where the inspiration could have possibly have come from (though a certain movie comes to mind), so we'll just say that, this year, at least you'll be able to find your Halloween costume at high fashion Bergdorf Goodmans as easy as you could at Rickys.
