Maison Margiela's eyewear debut, L’Incognito, brought you sleek anonymity with its black-barred face redaction. Now the Maison brings you the Mono Lens, a highly evolved descendant of the classic aviator—or, perhaps more accurately, a car windshield you can strap to your face. The ultimate in retro futurism by way of Dada playfulness, the latest model also manages to reflect fall's armored mood, in its own perverse way. $495 at Oki-Ni, available in amber or gray.

Reid Peppard is taking taxidermy to new levels of luxury creating androgynous jewellery and accessories out of creatures' corpses. Born and raised in California, Reid Peppard is now based in London after doing a Foundation Degree and Fine Art Bachelors Degree at Central Saint Martins. As a member of the taxidermist’s Guild in the UK, she taxidermies all the animals (with few exceptions) in her sculptural work and installations which have also been shown as part of Hackney Wicked Art Festival. Using little white mice heads and the wings of birds, 'scent, sound, texture and moving image' are often incorporated within her work.

But he sought out a mentor and, at only 16, traveled from Ireland to to London to intern with Zandra Rhodes. There he was put to work painting pattern designs and found out about applying to Central St. Martins. Fast forward eight years to his win—and on his birthday, no less.
