An all-black theme has taken over the Obese.Plein fashion house for the Spring/Summer 2013 collection with designer Robert Lai topping off each ensemble with a dramatic black shroud.

These masks turn the models into mysterious mannequins and also serve to ensure full emphasis is placed on the movement and texture of the garments themselves. The collection is a creative experiment in detail and design, combining structured tailoring and corset-like tops with flowing fabrics and layered skirts that billow with the slightest breeze. The light-as-air materials are contrasted with the tougher leather and vinyl paneling, adding depth and dimension to the overall blackness.

The Obese.Plein Spring/Summer 2013 collection by Robert Lai caters to the goth vixen with a penchant for drama. Stats for Ebony-Masked Couture Trending: Older & Buzzing
