These are the things that nightmares are made of. Playing with dark colors, solid materials, and exquisite shapes evocative of a world of fantasy, designer Nicolas Olivier Richard was all about conceptualism through organic materials when he boldly contrived these handmade wire masks for Swedish fashion label Nor Autonom.
The designer wanted to create an abstract collection to serve as the brand’s core DNA under Nor Autonom’s vision of fashion as a medium of storytelling, and with help from prolific photographer Mathias Sterner, does just so.
Sterner’s dark, brooding style seems to be the perfect collaboration for the brand’s out of this world look – these pics are so stunning they will continue to haunt us in our dreams.
New to the fashion scene, Nor Autonom will release their first collection, Entity – consisting of these nine magnificent masks – alongside their clothing line, Partisan in a vernissage at JUS Brunnsgatan 7 in Stockholm starting May 29th.
