STYLE: Up in Your Face Level
by Cheyanne Zadia
Master of Fly or Master of Disguise?! Thanks to Mason Martin Margiela and their alluring yet, intimidating studded face mask paparazzi don’t know weather to run or snap a picture. Since the mask was released to the runway the people were waiting to see who’d be the first celeb to sport such a piece. Although bids were on Lady Gaga, Kanye West was the first to hit the stage masked in Margiela at his Atlantic City Revel concert. Once Yeezy approved, masked men were spotted from all angles. It was as if Ye’ opened the doors to a world wide “Mask”erade.
Seen thereafter was A$AP Rocky court side at the Y-3 show geared up and ready to shoot! Kudos to the kid Rocky for keeping up with the
Kardasians… I mean Kanye. Needless to say A$AP Rocky has been on point fashion wise since he stepped in the game.
Wait, lets not forget about Tyler the Creator, who was one of the first since Wu-tang to hit the stage face masked during the “Odd Future Hype” that one year… Although Tyler and Wu-tang Clan pulled it off in a less fashionable manner you gotta’ give props where they’re due.
I just wonder how long it will last… What do you think? Fad or Timeless?
