You Keep Me Hangin' on: Meet Fashion's Latest Unlikely Pandemic Trend

Soon after the face mask became an essential accessory, designers swept in with their own versions: masks made of silk, tweed and satin; decorated with fringe, bows and sequins; for daytime and night-time; for weddings and political rallies.

When it became clear that we’d be wearing masks for a while, some added another element: a chain or lanyard for safekeeping (and extra flair).

Do retailers put them on sale or save them until next year?

Silky, shin-length tunics in pale green, velvet mini-dresses as soft as a baby’s bottom, wonderfully impractical heels festooned with bows, and heavily embellished skirts. Party dressing is all about extravagance, sexiness and wearing something mood-lifting - but it is also a self-contained sector, with the clothes we buy for Christmas drinks or New Year’s Eve dinner rarely used outside of the festive season.

Face Masks Pick Perilous Path From Health Protector to Fashion Accessory

Face Masks Pick Perilous Path From Health Protector to Fashion Accessory

While mindful of trivialising the pandemic, big names from Tilda Swinton to Lady Gaga have been rocking facial coverings.

At the Venice Film Festival the actor Tilda Swinton pulled out an ornate gold design face mask and wore it on the red carpet, just like she would have with a statement clutch bag or a must-have piece of jewellery.

The mask was not entirely pandemic-approved – on Instagram the designer James Merry said the custom-made piece was inspired by “stingray skeletons, seaweed and orchids” – but it was symbolic of a bigger shift: the world of high fashion is finally allowing itself to embrace the coronavirus face mask.

Last week also saw Lady Gaga light up the static VMA awards show with a parade of highly fashion-conscious masks. There was the bubblegum pink one from Cecilio Castrillo (a muzzle which resembled the facehugger from Alien), a horned one from Lance Victor Moore, a futuristic one designed by Smooth Technology and then when accepting an award she wore one in metallics by Maison Met.
