>> 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…

    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

    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. A bit freaky but still gorgeous! πŸ™‚

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

  7. Klara says:

    I want to see you in a lace outfit Susie!

  8. Lupe says:

    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.

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

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

  17. Esther says:

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

  18. Freya says:

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

    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!

  23. 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.
