War is a profitable business, indeed. Sadly though, the ones making all the cash aren’t the ones fighting on the front lines. We send the poor to fight the rich man’s war. If the “well-to-do” did actually hit the front lines, though, they’d probably loathe the standard issue chemical warfare masks they’d be forced to wear. Talk about drab. In what looks like an attempt to change the status quo, artist Diddo Velema created these Gucci- and Louis Vuitton-inspired designer gas masks. I don’t know about you, but I can breathe much easier knowing the wealthy can finally fight in style…if these were actually real, of course. Nope, they’re made for gallery purposes only. more images after the jump….
