1. Hat/Face Jewelry by Augustin Teboul

Face jewellery trend is booming. Think: Maison Martin Margiela’s AW 12 Haute Couture bejeweled glittery masks and organdy veils with embroidered eyeholes from the recent Spring Couture 14 collection of the maison. Augustin Teboul in their AW 14 collection transformed the desire to cover the face into a beautiful piece of art echoing S. Dali’s iconic lip sofa and jewellery designs. These lace & beads blow kiss lips are perfect choice for a date as well as for a Surrealist Dinner Party.

2. The Uber Turtleneck Dress by Irene Luft

If masks and veils  are not really your thing, have a look at the Uber Turtleneck Dress from Irene’s Luft AW 14 collection. This gorgeous lace dress features a high standing collar that covers the mouth and reaches to the ears protecting  your precious pout from unexpecting kisses. The look of the choice for ladies à la McQueen.

3. Crotchless Pants – Marina’s Hoermanseder

For all those  who rather expose than hide and protect: Marina’s Hoermanseder AW 14 crotchless pants, apparently inspired by the medical prosthesis. It will be hard to to get noticed.

4. No sleeves cape by Marina Hoermanseder

This particular item from Marina’s Hoermanseder AW 14 collection was designed for minimalists among fashionistas. The less is more, so no need for sleeves. The motto is “use your brain, not your hands”: The folded texture of the cape resembles the surface of human brain.  After Lady Gaga’s meat dress this particular item is certainly the most extravagant one.

Note: Lady Gaga’s stylist was in the front row at Hoermanseder’s show at Berlin fashion week. So hurry up before Lady Gaga will get her hands on it…  ;)

Transformable garment is essential especially now in times of the global climate change and the constant  changes in average temperature. Make sure to get Balagans’ AW 14 denim coat that can be easily transformed into a bodysuit once it gets too warm.
