Proaesthetics by Francesca Lanzavecchia is a series of back braces that have all taken a fashionable turn. Described by the Italian designer as "representative of skin," these back braces not only provide much needed support for injured individuals, they also provide a unique form of individual expression through texture, utility and more.

A manifestation of personal interests, lifestyles and even sensuality, Proaesthetics by Francesca Lanzavecchia is envisioned as another form of body modifications, albeit of the non-invasive variety. From lace and leather details to odd protrusions and pockets for items such as stationary and phones, the back braces are unlike anything a doctor would recommend to a patient. In fact, they look like they should be encased in a glass box rather than worn.
