The eyes have it

Publié par le 31 janvier 2014

Kenzo made it their main print for fall / winter 2013. Edeline Lee and Creatures of Comfort also adopted it for this particular season. In the case of the Dannijo x Man Repeller collection, the eye-opening moment came in 2012. High street brands have now followed suit. Taking a tip from the walls – who, as we all know, have ears – garments and accessories now effectively have eyeballs.

Although they can be a little off-putting to some, eyes carry important symbolism in many cultures and spiritual beliefs. At times, they represent protection, omniscience or a window into the soul. While they can convey openness and honesty (think of naked eyes as opposed to a stare hidden by sunglasses), they also intrigue us by their mysterious, seemingly mythical implications.

Take a look at the pictures below and tell us: would you wear a human organ, quite literally, on your sleeve?
