If wearing face masks out in public will be a part of our standard operating procedure for the foreseeable future, we might as well do it in style. We've been matching our masks to our makeup and matching our masks to our looks. Several designers started making reusable masks early on the pandemic. Now Burberry has joined their ranks with the launch of its first-ever face mask collection.
Burberry's masks are patterned in the brand's iconic Nova Check print and come in two different colorways: tan and light blue. Each mask was crafted from revalued fabric and antimicrobial technology, and provide Particle Filtration Efficiency (PFE). The pieces also arrive in its own portable pouch made from the same materials as the mask to protect it even when it's not in use.
Burberry will also continue its commitment to its Burberry Foundation COVID-19 Community Fund by donating a portion of sales from the masks to the fund, which was established in April 2020. "We are proud to be donating 20 per cent of the selling price of each face mask to the Burberry Foundation COVID-19 Community Fund operated by The Burberry Foundation (registered charity number 1154468) to support communities impacted by the pandemic globally," the brand stated on the site. The fund donates PPE to hospitals across the UK and has made several monetary donations to vaccine research, charities, and companies producing and distributing PPE.
The masks aren't available for purchase just yet but are "coming soon." Take a look at the Burberry masks here.
