Let’s be honest: most of us aren’t at our best before imbibing that critical first dose of caffeine in the morning. So you might be forgiven for wishing you could adopt an alter ego — or at least hide behind a wily disguise — as you gulp your morning latte. Sound like you?

Well, London-based designer Peter Ibruegger is here to help. Starting from the classic plain white coffee cup, Ibruegger has created a set of six mugs, each of which sports its own unique style of well-manicured facial hair. So next time you’re enjoying your morning joe, why not stroke your Magnum PI whiskers or twirl the ends of your Poirot moustache. Ridiculous? Oh yes. And that’s why we love them.
