Would you spend £ 425 on a designer face mask?


With facewear becoming a major part of our daily lives around the world in the midst of the corona virus pandemic, fashion houses are making money by producing a range of designer masks.

The Duchess of Cornwall was spotted today in a chic Liberty London silk face mask made by London-based couturist Fiona Clare when she visited the National Gallery in central London.

Camilla's envelope with a striking peacock print was reportedly a birthday present to a friend when she turned 73 earlier this month.

The accessory cost £ 38 – more expensive than a regular high street mask, but modest compared to those offered by Givenchy, Candice Cuoco, and Off-White.

In the meantime, Jeune Otte has turned vintage Hermes silk scarves into masks that are available for around £ 75. Here FEMAIL takes a look at some of the most luxurious designer face masks on the market.
