Very much like 2020 (groundhog day, anyone?), thsi year all outfits have one thing in common, a face mask, as we now can’t leave the house without them. This is an important item for practical purposes. However, now that numerous designers and brands have created non-medical, reusable face coverings, people are starting to play with vibrant prints and coordinate them with their outfits.
Independent brands and high-street retailers have been selling masks for several months now, but many major luxury fashion houses, such as Gucci, Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Dior, have steered clear of creating face masks for commercial purposes. Last year, Burberry became one of the biggest fashion houses to launch fabric face masks in its heritage vintage check. But plenty of other big fashion houses have followed suit.
Missoni, Off-White, Marni and Vampire’s Wife are a few of the other luxury designers that have also created face masks, and Liberty’s £40 sets have been hugely popular. These high-price-point logo-flashing masks will certainly divide opinion, but as masks become an important part of how we get dressed every day, we’ll see more designers creating them. Keep scrolling to see the current designer face masks available now.
