Useless gas mask studded with diamonds and made of leather

Diddo Velema’s gas masks were part of the Luxury Show 2008 in Bucharest & Romania. I still do not get the point, what’s the idea to wear a gas mask unless and until you are a patient of bronchitis. Designer Diddo Velema, with Gucci and Luis Vuitton, will have us wearing gas masks made from the finest materials and studded with diamonds. Do diamonds help in gaining fresh air?

Still trying to understand the uber class useless innovations.
