Pinched to Perfection

  • "Pinched to Perfection"
    Samuelle Lanier for ERA 1: AUGMENTED
  • The first era of the DÆV universe explores the intriguing world of plastic surgery. This collection emphasizes the beauty and nature of the enhanced human body.
  • Creation
    Samuelle is styled in a skin tight, latex dress with contrast black cut outs. The dress is held together with metal cords and alligator clamps. This dress is inspired by the the recovery gowns worn by patients after surgery.
  • Inspiration
    The visual concept was influenced by Angelique from Hellraiser: Bloodline (1996) and Mrs. Lowry’s plastic surgery scene in Brazil (1985). The metal clamps that have adapted as her braids are motioned to be extending out, ready to pinch and pull at your face.
