As I'm now slowly venturing out into London again, I'm building up my collection of face masks so that I have one readily available in all of my handbags. This is an important item for practical purposes. I'm certainly not suggesting it is purely a fashion statement, but nevertheless, I'm finding myself drawn to the leopard- and floral-printed varieties that are now available.
Numerous designers and high-street brands have branched out into face masks, so you can now buy a printed Rixo or O Pioneers mask to match your midi dresses. Gap and Mango have plenty of reusable face masks, in gingham, polka-dot and animal prints. While if you want to support smaller British designers or independent brands during this time, the British Fashion Council has teamed up with Bags of Ethics to manufacture sustainable coverings from the designers Julien Macdonald, Rixo and Liam Hodges. Etsy is also a treasure trove of cute printed face masks, with dozens available for under £10.
