With no end in sight to the coronavirus pandemic, it looks like protective face wear is here to stay.
But who says it can’t be stylish?
And now, Louis Vuitton is taking it a step further, releasing a luxury face shield that’s designed to be “both stylish and protective,” the French fashion house said in a statement.
The “eye-catching” LV Shield transitions from clear to dark in sunlight, protecting wearers from the sun. It also features golden studs engraved with Louis Vuitton’s brand name and an elastic, monogrammed headband. The visor can also be worn upward as a classic peaked cap, according to the label.
Pricing has not yet been announced, but as a high-end fashion brand, it’s not likely to be cheap. Other Louis Vuitton head wear, including hats and sunglasses, sell for hundreds of dollars.
The face shield will be sold online and at select Louis Vuitton stores starting on October 30.
A brief history of the red carpet
The brand also said it was donating thousands of hospital gowns to six Paris hospitals in urgent need of protective gear.
