face accessories by david toro and solomon chase

american fashion designer solomon chase teamed-up with visual artist david toro to create this playful line of
‘facial products’, aptly titled ‘face’. the products focus on adding new attributes to diversify faces – examples include
furry bindis and reflective, glow-in-the-dark eyebrows.

face’ explores temporary facial adornment as practical accessories and self-expression. we see the face as the
most important part of our outer selves, the first part noticed, the most judged. we want to transform it unlike what
is done with makeup or even cosmetic surgery. our aim with ‘face’ is to experiment with a paradox of utility and
aesthetics, and develop products ranging from functional and wearable to extravagant and conceptual.‘ S&D
