Designer Gas Masks So You Can Face the Apocalypse in Style

If you’re like me you get frustrated by the fact that all gas masks tend to look alike – standard military issue chemical warfare prevention stuff. Well, you can start to breath a little easier (even if it’s through a mask) because famed designer, Diddo Velema, has gone out of his way to make gas mask wearing not only fashionable, but the hot new thing for going out on the town.

Diddo Velema’s gas masks were part of the Luxury Show 2008 in Bucharest, Romania, and you probably can’t get your hands on one unless you are very, very rich.
