The facial jewellery collection “Doux Leurre” by Pauline Müller promises intensive bodily and visual experiences for the wearer and viewer alike.
The body is a transformable matter. Today’s society engages with metamorphic concepts of appearance. Pauline Müllers thesis, based on observatory research of her personal social environment, questions through wearable objects, why our society immerses itself in the phenomena of transformable, bodily practises. The strong aesthetic of «Doux Leurre», achieved through a combination of elegant elements such as pearls, and contrasting golden street-bling chains, triggers curiosity. Whoever engages with this facial metamorphosis, even for a short time, experiences their altered appearance with force and skin-felt vividness. This modifying jewellery creates awareness for new body sensations.
