Inspired by a mask worn Michael Jackson, this face mask was initially showcased as part of Bernard Chandran’s runway show in 2010. Now, the designer has reimagined it for the coronavirus era.

Made from breathable woven fabric, the face masks comes with two design options — a tie-on version and a ear-loop version. Available in a variety of colours, each mask comes with two non-woven fabric disposable filter refills made from an anti-air absorbent and anti-liquid absorbent material. 

It is recommended that the mask be hand-washed daily with mild detergent and hung out to dry completely before reusing it.
