THE VOYAGE TO MARS

A jewellery and glasses collection by Slovak designer Mariana Berec took shape of protective shields and masks as a present-day armor, which will serve the purpose of protecting humans living on a new planet.

The Mars collection by Mariana Berec came to life in collaboration with fashion designer Lukáš Spilka and reacts to the current polemics surrounding the planet’s colonization. 

The leitmotif is a woman in the role of the red planet’s colonizer. The accessories, taking shape of protective shields, masks, and synthetic hair, function as a present-day armour, which will serve the purpose of shielding humans living on a new planet. Mysterious masks have, besides the utilitarian protective function, a striking aesthetic quality and define the future self-confident look of a woman existing outside planet Earth.
