Picking the right face covering has become one of the surprise fashion challenges of 2020, with the market now fully saturated with countless options.

You can get silk ones, cotton ones, floral ones, ones with your dogs face on, and even accessorise with mask chains.

Now French fashion house Louis Vuitton are throwing their, erm, mask into the ring and making a face shield of their very own.

Reportedly costing a tidy $961 – roughly £750 – it’s one of the most expensive face coverings going.

The shield comes complete with golden studs, a photochromatic visor which will react to sunlight by turning darker, and the Louis Vuitton monogram print will adorn the trim and headband.

You can also flip the visor and wear it as a hat.

This pricey piece of PPE will be released around the world on 30 October as a part of Louis Vuitton’s 2021 Cruise Collection.

The company described the shield as ‘an eye-catching headpiece, both stylish and protective’ in a press release.

Louis Vuitton will join the likes of Burberry, which was among the first luxury fashion brands to announce the launch of their own face covering at a cost of $115 (£90).

These masks will be made from leftover fabric, and 20% of of the proceeds from each mask sold will go to Burberry Foundation COVID-19 Community Fund.
