The last thing you need right now is a reminder that the coronavirus is still around. But listen, life goes on and looking fab is still a routine we plan to keep. Louis Vuitton has seen enough custom LV monogram mask pics on the ‘gram to be convinced that the fashion set is looking for something completely unattainable – to the extent that many have been searching for bootleg sources that call out for the next Dapper Dans to step up their game. (Some examples online include upcycled monogram scarves as face masks with interchangeable filters and even one made from actual LV monogram leather with Hannibal Lecter vibes.) The Parisian fashion house isn’t going to let this opportunity slide with the imminent release of its first upmarket face shield that would have fit right in with Nicolas Ghesquière’s futuristic womenswear collection for Louis Vuitton in the spring-summer of 2019. But hey, better relevant than never. Don’t just dismiss this face shield as monogram-lined for monogram’s sake. The fashion house has made sure that the visor screen is photochromatic which means it is able to transition from clear to dark when detecting a light source in your direction. Also your metaphor for throwing shade at the virus.
