Masks in 2020 are what Juicy Couture tracksuits were to the 2000s: everywhere, and we can’t get enough of them.
Whichever way you look at it, face masks are here to stay for a while, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with them. There are plenty of designers and quirky stores giving their own take on the new essential, and here’s a timely list of local brands to up your facial cover.
Parascandalo’s sleek take on the mask is a perfect way to keep safe and stylish. Their crisp, white masks are a good staple to have for any summer outfit.
2. Luke Azzopardi
A designer known for all things bespoke and beautiful, Azzopardi’s designs do not disappoint. The local sustainable luxury brand teams up with JUGS Malta to give us five patterned face masks for any (health authorities permitting) occasion.
Imagine your grandchildren discovering these beauties decades from now, and envisioning how elegant you looked in the COVID-19 era.

There you have it, a little guide to keeping up appearances, even in a pandemic. Be sure to stay safe, stay cautious and maybe buy me one of these babies as a little thank you.
