Perhaps it’s the Lady Gaga/superheroes influence but we noticed a heavy emphasis on masks in recent shows and editorials. Is it a need to put on a brave face as the industry recovers just a tad too slowly? Or is it merely a “let’s kick serious fashion butt” competitive edge that’s driving everyone? What’s your favorite masked look to pull off?
