Face Masks That May Block Your Smile But Won’t Cramp Your Style

Let’s face it – they’re going to be making regular appearances in our ensembles for a while.

Alice Made This
Made from diolen – a high tenacity manmade yarn known for its hygienic credentials – these (£18 – see also main pic) are designed for comfort and breathability, too.

Le Colonel
These stylish offerings (£22) from the French accessories label are made in their workshop in Lille.

The bendable nose piece on these masks (£17) from ultra-hip the social activist brand reduces slippage and makes them ultra-comfortable.

Migrate Art
Kai & Sunny are the multidisciplinary design duo behind these double sided reversible, washable and reusable face masks, part of the “Masks For Meals” campaign: a collaboration with various artists, the proceeds from which will help feed the UK’s homeless.

House of Bijan
Surely the most luxurious mask in the world. Each one ($480, or around £375) comes with a matching box made of silk jacquard and includes two pure, washable cotton liners.

Turnbull & Asser
These options (£45) boast the same attention to detail as the Jermyn Street Royal Warrant holder pays to its shirts and have been created with the brand’s longstanding collaborator, Albini, who have developed a filter that actively inhibits viruses and kills bacteria on contact. The brand is donating £5 from the sale of each mask to NHS Charities Together in the UK and New York’s First Responder Fund in the US.

Brooks Brothers
The lightweight non-woven material from which these (£25) are made filters, claim the  New York-based outfitters, 95 percent of particles based on FDA-required filtration-efficiency testing.
